ObjectiveOfficial Launch: CalCUPA has developed a new Learning Management System (LMS) for its members to continue to receive CUPA Program education. Successful completion of course materials and quizzes will award members CEUs that can be used to maintain a variety of certifications. We will review this new system/tool together during this Session.
DescriptionOver the years, we at calcupa.org have created several different methods of providing training for members to learn and earn CEUs. We've hosted a video library and over 200 videos from our 2 years of virtual conferences. We have tried several methods of having users verify they have watched the videos in an effort to maintain our accreditation with the State. In order to continue to improve CUPA Program Training to our members, we are moving forward with the next step in our training evolution to provide members with a full Learning Management System (LMS) training experience. This will allow Course attendees to be provided a variety of types of information including documents and videos. Successful training will be verified with the use of quizzes which must be passed in order to earn CEUs. We believe this will offer a further validation of the training experience for our members and continue to justify the awarding of CEUs for completed training. In this Session, we will walk through the process of accessing LMS Courses at calcupa.org and demonstrating some of the features and functions of the material and most importantly, how to meet the criteria for earning CEUs.
