Changes Coming to How the Training Department Processes Credit Requests
The PAC Training Department is constantly looking to improve processes and workflows to ensure the best experience for attendees. One area in particular that needed review was the credit request process. After much consideration, Training has implemented changes that will take effect on October 1, 2022. Please review the below changes for CLE, POST, and Victim Advocate Credits.
CLE RULE CHANGE – As of October 1, 2022, CLE credits received at a PAC training will now be paid through the Georgia State Bar. Attorneys must turn in a CLE form to the PAC Training Department within 21 days of the close of a training to receive credit. Any late submissions must be approved by Kelli Baxter, Director of Training, and will only be approved under extenuating circumstances. PAC will then enter your credits into the CLE portal on the Georgia Bar website. After your hours are entered by Training, you will pay for your credits through the portal. Credits received at a training that took place prior to October 1, 2022 can still be paid via check or money order to PAC. All payments for trainings prior to October 1, 2022 must be paid by March 31, 2023 in order to receive credit.
POST RULE CHANGE – As of October 1, 2022 all POST forms must be turned in to PAC Training Department within 21 days of a training to receive credit. Any late submissions must be approved by Kelli Baxter, Director of Training, and will only be approved under extenuating circumstances.
VICTIM ADVOCATE RULE CHANGE – In an effort to streamline the credentialing process, we will no longer be distributing advocate forms. Instead, we will only send out certificates at the end of each training. As always, it is up to you to keep up with your annual training hours and certificates.
Please share this update with your colleagues to spread the word about the credit request changes.
We look forward to seeing you at the next training!
