Professional Short Courses

The Society of Wetland Scientists Professional Certification team is in the process of creating a way for the future certified wetland scientists to know that a short course will qualify as part of the requirements. To help applicants ensure that professional short courses will be accepted by the Certification Review Panel and the Certification Renewal Committee, proponents of said courses may apply to the Professional Short Course Pre-Approval Program to have their courses evaluated and pre-approved. Such approval provides certain predictability that the course offered will receive credit or points, as appropriate, by applicants seeking PWS certification or certification renewal.

The following is intended to provide the short course providers the information they need to qualify their short courses for this program.
You can either download a paper form or you can do everything on line.

On line process

The online process is broken into two parts.
First the prospective Professional Short Course provider must register and complete the payment process.
Professional Short Course Provider Registration
Second after the provider's registration is approved and they receive their unique Provider Code, the provider then completes an application for each Professional Short Course that they want to get approved.
