Documentation Skills Mini Lesson
NCCAP Approved 3 Hours
What is a “Mini Lesson”? : Mini Lessons can be completed by an individual or can be completed as shared learning with departmental staff. The Mini Lesson content introduces basic concepts which are practiced by the activity/recreation department as a team. If using the mini lesson as departmental training, each individual completes the mini lesson independently (reading the lesson and completing the pre and post test independently). After all participating staff complete the mini lesson, a meeting is called to complete the mini lesson learning activity. Suggestions for completing the learning activity are provided with the mini lesson.
Course Requirements : Take the provided pretest; read the mini lesson “Documentation Skills ” by Debbie Hommel, ACC, CTRS; take the provided post test and complete the Documentation Skills Word Find. You may e-mail, mail or fax your completed materials to DH Special Services. Once the materials are received and a passing grade is determined, your certificate will be mailed to you. If you are in need of the certificate sooner, a copy can be faxed to you and the original mailed.
