I’m delighted that after months of careful preparation the Findhorn College is now ready to offer externally accredited Continuing Professional Development certificates (CPDs) for both onsite and web streaming participants in the Conscious Climate Change conference (CCC19). Working to set up the CPDs have been very fulfilling and we’re looking forward to seeing how this project unfolds as people register and engage with the process.
I believe it’s vitally important to publicly acknowledge that events addressing sustainability have relevance and significance for all professions and fields of work. Accredited professional recognition underscores how important it is to take responsibility for sustainability issues seriously, not only on an individual basis but also professionally and collectively. Developing awareness, learning skills and identifying actions we can take to mitigate the effects of climate change are essential contributions to the future well-being of humans and all other life forms on our planet.
Findhorn College is offering CPDs for a Findhorn Foundation conference for the first time, so we have spent the last several months setting up this pilot and I have been involved from the beginning. One of the exciting challenges has been to translate between communication styles in order to maintain the core purpose and values of this event while avoiding jargon so that our external accreditors understand its content and structure.
The College is offering two versions of CPD certificates as part of this pilot. The 35-hour CPD certificate for onsite (in person) participants requires attending 35 hours of sessions and completing an online Finalisation Questionnaire. The online (live streaming) 21-hour CPD requires attending 21 hours of specified web streamed sessions, engaging daily in our virtual learning platform tracking your participation and completing a Finalisation Questionnaire.
Because of the theme of this event and knowing that CPD certification is in the pilot phase, we have been able to make the cost of the CPD very affordable. We already have applicants from several continents. We hope that as many people as possible will decide to participate in the CPD to gain certification for their engagement and support this great cause.
Apart from online tracking and a finalisation questionnaire no additional study is required.
