What procedures do I need to follow to obtain CE credit?

Individuals requesting continuing education hours or wanting a certificate of attendance must register in TRAIN Texas, have their attendance verified, and complete the mandatory evaluation within two weeks after the presentation.

Attendance Verification

Attendance is verified from the sign in sheets at pre-established webinar group viewing locations or the Lecture Hall (K-100, Austin). Continuing education candidates will need to arrive within 10 minutes of the start of a presentation and remain in attendance for the full time in order to receive CE credit. Those who participated in an individual webinar will have their attendance verified by the DSHS webinar organizer and DSHS CE Service.

Please do not click on the “Manage or M" button and mark the course "Completed". CE Services is solely responsible for the verification of attendance for Grand Rounds sessions. If someone other than CE Services marks an attendee “completed”, it could jeopardize the awarding of continuing education credits for that attendee.

Course Evaluations

Once attendance verification has occurred (usually by the Friday following the presentation), the attendee may complete the course evaluation.

Instructions:

  • Log in to TRAIN Texas and the hyperlink "There are pending evaluations!" should appear in the upper right under the DSHS logo. (Alternatively, the attendee may go to "My Learning" in TRAIN Texas and click on the course hyperlink "Completed, but an evaluation is pending.")
  • Complete the course evaluation.

Certificate of Attendance

After completing the course evaluation, the attendee's new certificate becomes available through the "Certificates" option under "My Learning Record" on the TRAIN Texas homepage. Open and print the certificate.pdf file. The certificate can also be saved using a new file name.
