Professional and Occupational Practice Requirements: A Continuing Professional Education Series. Second Edition.
Queeney, Donna S.; And Others
This report is the most current installment in the series on professional and occupational practice requirements in the state of Pennsylvania. It is part of a study of licensing and continuing education requirements of 75 occupations. All information on the professions and occupations addressed earlier has been revised as necessary to reflect changes in legislation, certification requirements, and other pertinent material. Following a discussion of the methodology of obtaining the occupational information, the report contains summaries of 66 professions and occupations. In addition to outlining the requirements for individuals wishing to obtain mandatory or voluntary credentials, the summaries provide background information on the development of the profession or occupation and material on current trends within the field. A section on the climate for continuing education has been included in each summary to give continuing educators an overview of the group's perceived need for and interest in continuing education programs. In addition, synopses of educational and licensing requirements for nine other occupations is presented. The primary function of the summaries and synopses is to assist the continuing educator in identifying those professions and occupations warranting further exploration as continuing professional education target groups. The material will be expanded and updated periodically. (KC)
