1. All Certified Singles Workshop Presenters must accrue 10 hrs of Continuing Education every two years. A common method of gaining the 10 hrs of CE credits is by either joining a supervision group or by sending in DVD's for supervision (this will be for supervision only and not be for evaluation). By attending one annual Imago International Conference you can probably receive all 10 credits needed. By sending in videotape for supervision, you will receive 2.5 CE credits. All advanced courses in the catalog state how many credits they give.
2. Attend the annual Workshop Presenters Update meeting at least every other year. This is usually held at the Annual Imago International Conference. If an Individual Singles Workshop Presenters Update is not held, the Couples Workshop Presenters Update will suffice. However, all Workshop Presenters are encouraged to attend IRI annual conference every year. If this requirement cannot be done for some important reason, the Workshop Presenter may fulfill this requirement by assisting at an Individual and Singles Workshop put on by a faculty member and meeting with that member for one hour after the workshop for feedback. The faculty member then needs to send a positive report to the Professional Training Coordinator. Therapist must inform the Institute in writing upon the completion of the update requirements. If they are not completed, the Workshop Presenter must cease doing workshops until the requirements are met. If the Workshop Presenter is inactive for two years, they must attend the annual Workshop Presenters Update and assist at an Individual and Singles Workshop offered by a Clinical Instructor before they resume offering workshops to the general public. If they have been inactive for five years or more, they need to discuss with the Training Coordinator how they may become active again.
