On-Line and Other Training Programs

Below is a list of online and other resources that offer training videos eligible for continuing education unit (CEU) credits. For videos or webinars, typically the webinar host will generate a certificate or other proof of attendance. In the event that proof cannot be obtained from the webinar coordinator, a brief summary of the points covered in the webinar must be submitted to the Master Logger Program to receive credit. The exception would be the MD-DE Master Logger Program courses. These courses have a simple quiz instead.

High-speed internet (DSL, Cable, etc.) NOT necessary
