Montana Certification Program For Library Directors, Staff, and Trustees Manual

For Continuing Education Credits For Presenting Workshops

Participants in the certification program are eligible for continuing education credits for workshops that they develop and present for librarians or trustees on library-related topics. The formula for CE credits is the length of the workshop times two.

Example: A 4 hour workshop about library law will be 4 CE credits for attendees and will be 8 CE credits for the presenter (4 hours x 2).

Credits can only be earned once unless substantial changes are made to the presentation. Presenters can only receive credit twice per training topic in a 4 year certification period.

If you are preparing a training session for librarians or trustees, your supervisor will help with the number of credits and CE category. If uncertain of the category, please contact the State Library for assistance.
