Big Changes for Professional Organizer Certification CEU Eligibility

The Board of Certified Professional Organizers (BCPO) announced this week that Continuing Education Unit (CEU) eligibility requirements have been revised to include some online and recorded courses. The revised CEU eligibility requirements are as follows:
1. Classes must be at least 60 minutes long.
2. Classes must provide skills and knowledge that allow you to better serve your clients.
3. Classes must be live, web-based, or recorded.
4. For initial certification, at least 70% of the CEUs claimed as substitute hours must be for live classes; up to 30% may be for web-based or recorded classes.
5. For re-certification, of the 45 required CEUs, at least 30 must be for live classes; up to 15 may be for web-based or recorded classes.

We offer online and recorded courses that are eligible for certification CEU's that you can attend by online live Webinar or recorded Self-Study Program options. Unit I is primarily focused on forming your business. Unit II, Unit IV and our new GO System training provide you with skills and knowledge that allow you to better serve your clients.

All of our courses are the most comprehensive and at a very lowest cost comparable to other programs in the market. And, remember professional development is a deductible business expense.

Don't wait until the last minute to realize you don't have the CEU's you need to certify or recertify. Continue your education throughout the course of your profession to stay on top of the latest industry information and knowledge.

and join me for your continuing education and start earning your CEU's toward certification or recertification now.

I love what I do!

Today I’m preparing for the July 15-17 Layer 2 Seminar training and client practicum. I was reviewing the May participant’s remarks to capture improvements to the training curriculum and thought I would share their feedback:
Jenee - Anne and her 3 day seminar really are amazing! Her program was beyond what I expected, she goes the extra mile for every part of it. The only thing I would change is the distance that separates us (Florida-Oregon). Anne truly has so much to offer to this industry, I'm glad I had the opportunity to learn from the best! As I continue in this field I'm excited to have her as a mentor.
Elida - The training seminar, was rejuvenating! It exceeded my expectations and experience! Anne is extremely professional and of course organized!! I love when things just flow and stay on track, and the seminar did just that!

NAPO Conference Sparks New Affiliate Program

At the NAPO 2013 Conference Expo I had the opportunity to talk with several NAPO Chapter Presidents and other chapter board members. After I explained the Institute for Professional Organizers™ (IPO™) training program they expressed it is of value particularly to those first entering the profession.  It was exciting to receive validation and support from so many in the Professional Organizer industry!

Whenever I attend conference I discover ways to expand and grow my business.  This year, my expansion will directly benefit you. I have created an IPO™ affiliate program for you to earn passive revenue. As a past IPO™ participant you will earn higher commissions. For those of you involved in a NAPO chapter this is an opportunity for your chapter to earn revenue too.
