PEP CEC Training Discount
BUSSW field instructors are a valuable resource and mentor to our students. As a thank you, the Professional Education Programs Office (PEP) offers one free workshop to field instructors per academic year, on a first-come, first-served basis (space permitting).
Please check the PEP program website periodically to see what workshops are available. You are encouraged to email or call the PEP office (617-353-3756) for availability. This discount does not apply to certificate programs. If a slot is available, you will need to register for the class and indicate that you are a BUSSW field instructor to receive your discount. CEC certificates will be available at the end of your class.
Additionally, PEP frequently offers special trainings to field instructors on topical issues. Recent trainings included four skills-based workshops on suicide prevention and training. Information about these trainings is shared through the PEP and Field Education websites. Field instructors are encouraged to keep their email addresses up to date to receive the latest news and benefits.
