2022 Chapter Prep Session Application
Welcome to the 2022 Chapter Prep Session Application!

 

Follow the steps below to ensure your prep session is registered properly before you market or advertise your educational program:

Complete the following Education Application 45 days prior to training date

  • Chapters wishing to host a Level I and Level II Prep Session will need to submit two separate applications. 
  • Attach a copy of the facilitator bio or resume with each application.  Bios are good for the current calendar year.  Updated bios are required every calendar year.
  • Attach a copy of the speaker agreement.  Speaker agreements are good for the current calendar year.  Updated agreements are required every calendar year.
  • It's not necessary to attach course materials for prep sessions.  Prep Session Facilitators have access to the most updated materials.
  • Based on prep session attendee and facilitator feedback, the number of hours required to attend has increased so that participants have enough time to thoroughly cover all the materials. 
    • The Level I Prep Session has increased from 4 hours to 5 hours.  Session A will cover the first half of the study guide for 2.5 hours.  Session B will cover the second half of the study guide for 2.5 hours.  Attendees may attend one or both sessions.
    • The Level II Prep Session has increased from 4 hours to 6 hours.  Session A will cover sections 1 - 3 for 2 hours.  Session B will cover sections 4 - 6 for 2 hours.  Session C will cover sections 7 - 9 for 2 hours.  Attendees may attend one, two or all sessions.
  •  You may choose to host your prep session in person or virtually.
    • Chapters are responsible for following their local COVID plan when determining the number of in person attendees allowed at each in person event.
    • Chapters are responsible for consulting with the prep session facilitator when determining the number of virtual attendees allowed at each virtual event.
    • Chapters are required to follow the VIRTUAL LIVE POLICY  when hosting a virtual event.

 

Facilitators MUST be approved for this type of credit. If you need to have a facilitator scheduled for this event, contact Pat Riffel, Education Chair, at priffel@friendswood.com

It is essential to perfect the application process early which allows the Association time to advertise your training on the TCCA Website giving clerks throughout the state an opportunity to attend chapter training courses.

After you Apply: You will receive a confirmation email of your application being sent.  After review of your application by the Education Committee, you will receive an email confirmation of approval of said education. Once approved, the TCCA Administrative Assistant will create the event for posting to the TCCA Website.  The event draft will be sent to you for review prior to posting. 

ON THE DAY OF TRAINING you must have a sign in sheet for each topic or session to ensure only attendees are given qualified credit. The sign in sheet serves as the tracking source for certificates received. A form will be supplied for your convenience. Immediately following the training, submit a copy of the Sign In Sheets to the Education Chair for permanent records of certificates issued. The sign in sheet must include the location, date, course title and number of hours awarded and signatures of each person that attended the entire session.  The TCCA Administrative Assistant will create and post the certificates to the TCCA Website for you.
