MPA sponsors a variety of continuing education events including Friday Forums that are three-hour training sessions held virtually or in the Twin Cities that focus on clinical practice issues. Presenters receive a $250 stipend for their Friday Forum program. Other continuing Education programs may include full-day conferences and special one-hour programs and workshops. Some programs may be offered as live webinars or recorded for inclusion in MPA’s continuing education online library. Those who submit to do an online session will need to write 6 (six) questions per CE credit for the posttest. Click here to view CE Posttest writing guidelines.
