Professional and Occupational Practice Requirements. A Continuing Professional Education Series. Third Edition.
Queeney, Donna S.; And Others
This document is a report of a study that was conducted to provide a comprehensive, up-to-date compilation of data regarding professional and occupational practice requirements in Pennsylvania, focusing on the role of continuing professional education in the various credentialing processes. Following a discussion of the methodology and results of the study, the main part of the report is made up of summaries of 68 professions and occupations that present information for use by those involved in continuing professional education program development. 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, along with names and addresses of resource persons. 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. The primary function of the summaries is to assist the continuing educator in identifying those professions and occupations warranting further exploration as continuing professional education target groups.
