SILA Designation Continuing Education

Posted By Mary Kay Krambeer, Wednesday, July 31, 2019

SILA Designation Professional Development Program

In January 2018, SILA implemented the SILA Designation Professional Development Program requiring members to maintain their SILA designation by earning 24-hours of SILA CE every two years.

  • For SILA designations issued prior to 2018, CE is due by 12/31/2019.
  • For SILA designations issued on or after 1/1/2018, CE is due two years from the designation issue date.

How can I earn SILA CE? There are three categories of activities which can be applied toward your SILA CE requirement because in addition to the credits you can earn for SILA specific activities, non-SILA sponsored industry courses and meetings are also approved for SILA CE. SILA offers the annual National Education Conference, monthly webinars, regular Chapter meetings and a plethora of Subgroups, Committees and Task Groups where your participation will earn you SILA CE credit.

How do I check my SILA CE progress? You can track your professional development at any time using your SILA account. Simply log into your account then visit the PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT section of your profile.

How do I report SILA CE? If SILA sponsored the event, no action is required because we will automatically credit your membership account. To report non-SILA sponsored activity, you need to submit a SILA CE form along with proof of completion/attendance. The SILA CE Reporting Form is located on the main SILA website under Professional Development/SILA Designation CE.
