Plan your course and submit a copy of course material to our coordinator – it can be a Power-Point recording or a video recording, presentation, or similar formats.  

General Steps

Step 1: Select a topic based on your interest and experience. The course topic should fit the needs of professional areas such as Dispute Resolution, Legal, Mental Health, and Human Resources. When selecting a course topic make sure the topic has a clear focus. Your course must be expansive enough to appeal to a large audience, but specific enough to provide useful information. Once you have selected a topic make a brief outline of the issues you want to present and expand upon them.

Step 2: Write Learning Objectives, which are what the student can expect to learn by the end of the course. Almost every state licensing board requires that Learning Objectives be clearly identified at the beginning of a continuing education course. There should be at least three Learning Objectives for each credit hour of the course. Therefore, a four-hour course should have at least twelve.

Step 3: Create visual aids, which include non–copyrighted pictures, drawings, diagrams or charts as visual aids in your course material to help explain your topic. Proofread your material for grammatical and spelling errors before submission.

Step 4: Prepare a quiz. Quiz questions should be in the form of True/False or multiple-choice. The quiz questions and answers may be submitted along with the course material. A one-hour course should contain ten quiz questions. Each additional hour should contain five additional questions. So, a two-hour course should contain 15 quiz questions.

Step 5: With your course material, include a list of references or online technical resources. If online technical resources are referenced in the course materials, indicate the URL containing the material referenced. Give appropriate citations to any quotations used from other sources. You should also prepare a short biography of yourself to submit along with your first course.

Course Quiz and Answers: The writer is responsible for preparing quiz questions for his or her course. Quiz questions must be either multiple-choice questions or true/false. Both types may be used in a single quiz; however, true/false questions may not make up more than half of the questions. Multiple-choice questions must include at least three choices and not more than six choices. The writer must indicate the correct answer to each question by submitting a separate document containing the entire quiz in which the correct answers are in a distinctive color or in bold text. Quiz questions and answers may include diagrams, tables, charts or any other graphic device necessary to the question. All such devices must be the writer’s original work. Submittal Requirements: The course content must be submitted in electronic format, as a single document, in Microsoft Word or Power-Point. If the course contains graphics, diagrams or images included in the course content they must be embedded in the electronic document file.

ADRA decides the course fee. To ensure courses are competitive with similar market ADRA will make in an assessment. In general, for a 1 CEU course, ADRA may charge each learner approximately $22.00.

ADRA has developed a system and resources to offer any course in the following four formats: Live Online Webinar Sessions On-demand Pre-recorded Videos Self-study Material The most popular offering mode of CEU courses is via Self-Paced pre-recorded webinars and Study Material. Therefore, information we have provided in other questions is more relevant to Self-Paced pre-recorded webinars and Study Material. Of course, there is a demand for other modes which not many organizations are capable of offering and therefore, there is a good opportunity for you to do more through ADRA’s Continuing Education program. Please note that ADRA has been offering the certification review courses using all the modes and many students have successfully completed their courses using our system. If you are interested in offering your CEU course in modes other than self-study material, please let us know and we will discuss it as a case-by-case.
