Associate Continuing Education Components to Events
Mar 20, 2023
You can easily offer your continuing education courses using the Events Module. These types of events will display on the calendars you select, and also display as Upcoming Continuing Education Events in the Info Hub. There are two ways to add a certification component to an event- by selecting an existing component, or by creating a new component on-the-fly in the event.
Click Done again to associate the new component with the event.
If you wish to add additional components, repeat as needed.
For event registrants who have already enrolled in the associated certification program, the event registration will automatically update the certification progress, for that registrant.
For event registrants, who are NOT enrolled in the associated certification program, if the Enroll Attendees To All Relevant Certifications setting is enabled under Certifications General Settings the system will automatically enrolled the registrant in the appropriate certification program. SeeConfigure Continuing Education General Settings for further information.
If Enroll Attendees to All Relevant Certifications is not enabled, you will need to enroll the registrant in the program to ensure that the registration in the course is tied to the contact, and associated certification program. See Certification Enrollmentfor details.
Only registrants that are existing contacts in the database will be automatically enrolled in the certification. Hidden contacts, or contacts matched after the fact, will not be automatically enrolled. See Manage Event Registrations for further information.
Users that register for an event that is tied to multiple certifications (i.e. 6 sessions each pointing to 6 different certification components), will be enrolled in all 6 of those certifications.
When an attendee is marked as Attended in an event, they will automatically be sent a Component Completed certification, via email. (The attendee must exist in GrowthZone as a contact in order for the automated messaging to work; see Matching Registrants to Contacts for more information.) The document generation template can be selected on a component-by-component basis. If you do not want to send this particular document, you can choose to not send under Setup> Automated Messages.
