Earning SCECHs

Webinar recordings will be archived on the website for three months past their completion date, and/or during the period they are eligible to earn SCECHs. While MCAN works to provide State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECHs) for our webinars, we do not award SCECHs for reviewing webinar recordings unless participants earn at least an 8/10 on the accompanying quiz. For webinars without quizzes, no SCECHs will be awarded for reviewing the recordings. MCAN reserves the right to remove SCECH eligibility if content becomes outdated. For questions about SCECHs for MCAN provided professional development, email us at scech@micollegeaccess.org.
