Events are listed on the calendar. You can search by date or topic. You can also change the view from Month to List or Day. Please remember only interactive webinars can be counted for AT, however all eight hours of AT required for certification can be online during this crisis.
The state offers an online calendar of possible AT events. We will try to keep a parallel calendar of chapter approved AT, but if you find one on the state calendar that is not on this website, please email AT@efctmn.org for approval.
AT committee: Rita Lokie, Kathryn Wells, Robert McLaughlin, and Rob Roy. To contact the committee email AT@efctmn.org.
To request approval for AT complete this form. Please give us two weeks advance notice for your AT request to be approved, published on website and added to PYW. This provides members with plenty of time to plan their AT attendance.
Online Advanced Training
(check the calendar for in-person AT events)
To earn advanced training hours in 2021, webinars and on-line presentations are eligible; however, the webinars and on-line presentations must be LIVE. Unlike 2020, recorded sessions no longer count toward advanced training hours in 2021. There is ONE exception: the TMN Tuesday recorded sessions are allowed for AT.
The VMS code for a TMN Tuesday session or Be The Change session (live or recorded) is AT: TMN Tuesday. Recordings can be found at: https://txmn.tamu.edu/tmntuesdays/ and https://txmn.tamu.edu/bethechange/
Please be aware that 2021 TMN Tuesday and Be The Change events watched recorded will ONLY count for AT in 2021. Listen to the recording BEFORE January 1, 2022 for AT credit.
