Continuing Education Opportunities with ACB

ACB is proud to announce that 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.
 
Beginning with the 2018 ACB conference and convention in St. Louis, ACB will offer rehabilitation teachers and counselors, teachers of the visually impaired, low-vision therapists, orientation and mobility instructors, and other professionals the opportunity to earn continuing education credits throughout convention week. Credits will be offered for a wide range of specialized programs, workshops, seminars, and other events presented by ACB committees, special-interest affiliates, and representatives of government agencies and private industry.  Subjects addressed will include, but are not limited to, transition, vocational goals, technology, health issues, orientation and mobility, self-advocacy, braille, low-vision issues, daily living skills, physical education and social skills.
 
ACB convention dates are June 29 to July 6, 2018. Programs and events offering CE credits will begin on Saturday, June 30 and continue throughout the week.
 
To help you with your travel plans, details on individual programs and workshops offering continuing education credits will be posted on our new continuing education email list as soon as they are confirmed. Join the list by sending a blank email to continuing-education-subscribe@acblists.org. Pre-registration for the conference and convention opens on May 15th, and will include the ability to register for continuing education credits.
 
This initiative is part of the 2017 ACB strategic planning process, and is being directed by Carla Ruschival and Leslie Spoone. For more information, contact Carla Ruschival, CE chair, by phone at (502) 897-1472, or via email, carla40206@gmail.com.
