The Academy for Certification of Vision Rehabilitation and Education Professionals (ACVREP) has designated the American Council of the Blind as a RPPLE Category 1 provider of continuing education opportunities in the field of blindness and visual impairment.
Rehabilitation teachers and counselors, teachers of the visually impaired, low-vision therapists, orientation and mobility instructors, and others can earn continuing education credits at the ACB conference and convention. Credits will be offered for a wide range of programs, workshops, seminars, and other events presented by ACB and its committees, special-interest affiliates, and representatives of government agencies and private industry. As of this writing, offerings are still being developed; subjects may include transition, employment, technology, health issues, orientation and mobility, self-advocacy, braille, low-vision issues, daily living skills, social skills, etc.
ACB conference and convention dates are June 29 to July 6, 2018. Programs offering CE credits will begin on Saturday, June 30 and continue through Wednesday, July 4.
Details on programs and workshops offering continuing education credits are posted on the continuing education email list as soon as they are confirmed. Join the list by sending a blank email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Pre-registration for the conference and convention opens on May 15, and will include the ability to register for continuing education credits.
This initiative is part of the 2017 ACB strategic planning process. For more information, contact Carla Ruschival, CE Chair, by phone at (877) 630-7190, or by email, email@example.com.
