Throughout the year, MCAN offers various webinars to inform individuals within our network about best practices, emerging trends, and new tools. These webinars are offered free of charge and require advance registration. State continuing education clock hours (SCECHs) often are available. Webinar recordings are archived and available for viewing for one year after the recording date.

Earning SCECHs

Upon approval from the Michigan Department of Education (MDE), SCECHs are available in a variety of categories for participation in MCAN webinars. See the Michigan Online Educator Certification System to learn more about how many SCECHs are available, and their category, for each webinar.

If you provided your personal identification code (PIC) during registration and attended the entirety of the webinar, your SCECH will automatically be processed within one or two weeks after the webinar. Alternatively, you may email your name, name of the webinar, and PIC to scech@micollegeaccess.org following your participation in the webinar.
