MASP has absorbed the cost of SCECHs, and as a result there is no longer an additional fee for those earning credits. We have also changed the way we apply and document SCECHs, so it’s no longer “all or nothing.” While we encourage your attendance at all sessions, each individual can earn as many SCECHs as they want by attending as many sessions as they want. That said, the state requires we award no less than three (3) SCECHs per individual, so you must attend a minimum of three (3) hours across the two-day conference.
