Who Should Attend?
Professionals who manage state authorization, regulations, and federal updates at educational institutions. This workshop focuses on developing participants who have an understanding of state authorization who can build upon that knowledge to more specifically address more challenging facets of state authorization maintenance in regard to public and individual notifications and disclosures for compliance with federal and state regulations as well as SARA requirements.
WCET's State Authorization Network (SAN) is based on the philosophy: "Expecting each institution to navigate authorization regulations in every state is highly inefficient. Working cooperatively, institutions can share the burden." See the SAN website for a list of SAN participating institutions and organizations.
SAN Member fee is $600 until August 1, 2018, and $800 thereafter. Non- SAN Member fee is $1,200 until August 1, 2018 and $1,400 thereafter.
