How to get CEUs for watching TSBVI Outreach Videos
You can select a topic at the top of the page to filter options. For example:  Active Learning.

Each topic will filter to show you a listing of different sessions available for viewing.  A double asterisk (**) before the session title indicates that the content is available for ACVREP or SBEC credit.  If there is NOT a double asterisk (**) next to the title, then the content is not approved for credit; it is only available for viewing. Each listing available for credit will have a link to register in ESC-Works.

How to register for CEUs in ESC-Works
In order to receive continuing education credit (SBEC and/or ACVREP) for the archived webinar you must do the following:

  • Login and register for the event at our ESCWorks Registration Site. If you are a first time user, you will need to create an account.
  • View the archived webinar in its entirety.
  • Fill out the Delayed Viewing Request. You will be marked as attended by an outreach staff person, and you will receive an evaluation notification.
  • Complete the online evaluation and provide the session code in the online evaluation form. This code is found in your emailed registration confirmation.
  • If you would like more detailed instructions, download a printable handout of this process.

What happens after you submit your delayed viewing request?
Delayed viewing requests are answered Monday through Friday from 8:00 AM to 5:00 PM, with the exception of holidays and breaks.   Once you submit your Delayed Viewing Request Form, you will be marked attended by an outreach staff person.

After you are marked attended, you should receive an email from messenger@esclive.net.  It will contain a direct link to your online evaluation.  A pop-up window will appear when you click the link.  Be sure to complete the online evaluation form in its entirety, and supply the session code that is contained in your registration confirmation.  Be careful to enter the code correctly.  You can immediately download your certificate from that same window.

If you cannot locate your emailed evaluation, you can log into your ESCWorks account and go to:  Registration History / Certificates, click on Online Sessions, and click on the Complete sub-tab.  A link to your evaluation will be located under the title of the session.  Any and all of your certificates for completed sessions will be located in your Registration History, if you should need to download them again.  Posted below on the second page of the handout is a screenshot illustrating where to find the links described.
