Overview of Required Training

Enhance your programs by participating in cutting-edge training.

When you officially adopt the Standards by becoming an SOE member, you pledge that your organization will be involved in two forms of training:

  1. A one-time Standards Introductory Workshop (SIW). We ask that SOE members maintain at least one member on staff who has attended an SIW. Grace is given to allow ample time after initial adoption and during staff transitions.
  2. Attendance at least once every three years at one of the SOE Approved Training Conferences.  At least one staff member (preferably most) should attend one of these conferences for continuing STM education every three years.

Usually, the SIW and an Approved Training Conference can be attended together (piggy-backed) at one venue to help save time and money.
