Speakers Bureau Services
Palmer College’s Continuing Education department offers several live and online programs for your organization to bring to your members.
From certificate and diplomate programs to single session or license renewal series, our office is able to custom-design a seminar for your organization. Your group must supply a minimum number of confirmed attendees committed to taking the entire program (minimum number will vary depending on region and program requested). The Continuing Education department will handle the planning and costs, including:
- Scheduling and credentialing speakers
- Continuing education applications to select states
- Associated event planning such as speaker travel and honorarium, facility, audio visual, and catering arrangements
- Creating a flier for your organization’s use in program marketing to potential attendees
Distance learning options are more popular than ever, and now with more than 80 percent of state boards* accepting online learning for re-licensure, there’s no better time to offer a web-based course to your members.
Developing a high-quality, secure online learning platform takes a great deal of work, upkeep, and fiscal resources that may be better spent on other organization projects. Palmer College’s Continuing Education department uses a top-of-the-line system that is secure and features a timer for monitoring purposes. Our courses incorporate readings, PowerPoint presentations, audio, video, images and interactive thread discussions. Each course also includes an examination component.
As an online course partner with Palmer College, your organization will reap the rewards of profit sharing for every member who signs up for the selected course. Options include:
- Selecting from our ever-growing course offerings to co-promote to your members.
- Requesting Palmer College to create specialized courses your members are requesting or are required for license renewal in your state.
*Approvals vary by state board. Boards may limit the number of online hours licensees may earn toward license renewal.
Through the Speakers Bureau, the Continuing Education department provides a number of options to assist your organization in executing a successful seminar.
