Goals and Objectives
Please provide the learning objectives for your event. At the end of the course, participants will be asked to evaluate whether they were met. When determining how many Learning Objectives (LO) should be established, the following guidelines should be utilized (please note that the quality and quantity should be considered of LO for all programs, particularly for those longer than 8 hours): 2-3 LO for 1-3 hours, 3-4 LO for 4-6 hours, 5-6 LO for 7-8 hours. For events over 8 hours, please provide an additional 1-2 LO for each two hours of instruction.
Please view this link from APA on writing the Behavior Learning Objectives and Assessments. The verbiage for the Learning Objectives need to follow these examples.
Test Questions and Answer Key
List 4-5 questions for half-day workshops and 9-12 questions for full-day workshops (ONLY 1 true/false question is allowed, multiple choice) that address the material to be learned in your presentation. These questions are for participants to assess their own learning. They will be used to make up the Participant Evaluation Form. Also, please provide a key to the correct answers at the end.

- Instructor credentials, including relevant professional degree and discipline, current professional position, and expertise in program content;

- A clear indication of any activities within a program that are not offered for CE credit.
CRITERIA 2. Sponsors must make clearly evident to all potential participants, prior to registration, any known commercial support for CE programs or instructors. Any other relationships that could be reasonably construed as a conflict of interest also must be disclosed. If there is no conflict of interest or commercial support, then that should be clearly stated.
CRITERIA 3. Sponsors must assure that when referring to APA approval, the correct statement is used in all promotional materials such as ads, brochures, and announcements.
