Once a session has been completed, registration forms will be submitted to Lone Star College-University Park, and participants will be registered for CEUs (Continuing Educations Units).

Do I need to pre-register to attend a training session?

Yes. The Coastal Region GREAT Center supplies training materials based on the number of people pre-registered. By registering in advance, your name will be printed on the registration form, saving time at the training session. Also, you will not need to fill out a registration form online during the session.

I submitted a registration form but my name is not on the sign in sheet. Does this mean I am not registered?

No, it does not mean you are not registered. The sign in sheet is created on the Thursday before a training session occurs. This means that individuals sending registration forms after Thursday will not appear on the sign in sheet. If you notice that your name is not on the sign in sheet but you submitted a registration form, fill in your name and other required information on a blank line.

How will I receive professional development hours for attending a training session through the Coastal Region GREAT Center?

Once you complete a training session through the Coastal Region GREAT Center, we will send documentation of your attendance to the institution for whom you work. The institution you work for will then be responsible for entering your professional development hours into TEAMS.  Certificates of Completion are also emailed directly to the participant.
