Certification Review Session and Exam Oct. 21–22
Take advantage of the continuing education hours available at Staffing World® by earning your Certified Staffing Professional™ or Technical Services Certified℠; designation before the convention begins. Stephen Dwyer, Esq., ASA deputy general counsel, will lead an exam review session, first outlining the content covered on the exam, then taking your questions. You'll need to order your study materials and read them ahead of time, but this is the best way to get your questions answered and take the exam while the information is fresh in your mind.
Get certified by following these three steps:
- Register for the review session and exam. Registration is now closed
- Purchase and read the study materials before the convention.
- Participate in the 2.5-hour review session Oct. 21, and take the exam Oct. 22.
Once you pass the exam, be sure to stop by the registration desk and get a new badge so that you can proudly display your new professional designation while you're earning CE hours for each workshop you attend.
Attendance at the review session is free with the purchase of a full convention and expo package. However, you must still register separately for the exam. If you do not purchase a full convention and expo package, fees for the exam review session are $79 for ASA members and $150 for nonmembers. All attendees seeking to earn a designation must purchase the exam and study materials to prepare for the session and to take the exam.
Earn Continuing Education Hours
If you're already certified, attend the review session as a refresher and earn 2.5 legal CE hours toward renewing your CSP™ and TSC℠ designations. Also, if you earned your designation before the exams were updated in 2007, you can earn an additional 1.5 legal CE hours by purchasing a state employment law workbook and taking the state-specific portion of the exam.
At Staffing World 2008, you can earn more than half the CE hours required to maintain your Certified Staffing Professional and Technical Services Certified designations. To retain the CSP and TSC designations without retesting, you need 30 CE hours every three years. Six of those hours must be in employment law. The workshops, keynotes, and Knowledge Network are worth up to 15 hours (of which 7.25 hours qualify for legal CE), and an additional 2.5 can be earned by attending the certification exam review session Tuesday, Oct. 21. If you attend the certification exam review session and the Staffing World workshops that offer legal CE hours, you can earn enough to satisfy your legal CE requirement.
