 CEC Allocation Process:

We have recently revamped our CEC Allocation process to better allow our members to assess CEC possibilities offered in Manitoba. If there conferences, workshops or seminars that you attend that follow the same content as the suggested topics below there will be an opportunity to gain CEC’s for those.

We will still need applications to be sent in with the agenda and the credentials of the sessions that you attend.

CEC’s will be assessed according to the following criteria:

Theory Seminars

These seminars are designed to increase the understanding of facts, concepts, research and theories. The teaching format is one or a combination of lecture, group work, reading or other learning strategies intended for increasing knowledge. Movement may be a part of the learning process but only to illustrate, reinforce or analyze the new knowledge.

Sample seminar topics include but are not limited to:
