Course Reviewer’s Corner

The Resources Page: A Provider’s Best Friend
Have you reviewed the CES Discovery Resources page lately? If not, we highly recommend it, since it contains a comprehensive list of tools you will need throughout the processes of submitting courses and recording attendance. Simply click on “Resources” at the far right of the red menu bar on the Discovery home page. Here are some highlights of what you’ll find there:
• Frequently Asked Questions. You’ll find any standard Discovery-related questions located here.
• Step-by-step tutorials. These tutorials contain detailed, illustrated instructions on how to submit courses and how to submit course attendance, using the various methods available.
• Sign-in Sheet Template. This template can be used as a sign-in sheet for attendees completing your CES courses. Its purpose is to aid you in reporting attendance, and is for your records only.
Monthly Provider Tips and Reminders
•Updated AIA CES templates can be found in the Resources section of CES Discovery. New Quality Assurance slides, course certificate template, course evaluation, and the Speaker Agreement are available. In addition, a new course handout template has been added for your use.
•Archived webinars are available on the AIA Education webpage. View past webinars on AIA CES Quality assurance, course development, and AIA member education needs.
•The AIA Continuing Education team will be deactivating courses submitted in the years 2000, 2001, and 2002 during the first week in June.
