How to Obtain Videos Approved for Credentialing Credit
STARnet’s early childhood professional development program, Apples Video Magazine, has archived past and present episodes online. These can be viewed for EI Credit.
Those videos will have a
Modem link beside them.
Since April 2006, a maximum of 5 hours of EI credit via videos may be used for every 30 hours of continuing education submitted for renewal and/or core knowledge area documentation purposes for early intervention professionals. The EI Clearinghouse has worked with the Early Intervention Training Program to identify videos available from the EI Clearinghouse lending library that have been approved for EI credit hours. While providers cannot use video-based training for all of the required training hours, they can apply for credit for at least some of the required hours.
Video-based credits are based on contact time, so a half-hour video would equal a half hour of credit, a one-hour video would equal one hour of credit, etc. Each video viewed requires the completion of an EI Training Video Credit Request Form, which is to be sent to the EI Training Program when completed. After your information is reviewed and approved, you will receive a Certificate of Credit indicating that you have earned contact hours equal to the video running time (to the nearest quarter hour) to apply toward your EI credential. Please contact the Early Intervention Training Program for more information.
A list of all videos available from the EI Clearinghouse is provided below. To identify the component area addressed by viewing a video, check the “Notes” included for that video. Please check our Online Catalog for the availability of these videos. Videos can be ordered by email, telephone, fax, or in person at the library. Videos may be borrowed for two weeks and are not renewable. You may borrow up to four videos at a time. You will receive information with the video on options for returning the materials.
