Chapter Training Modules
Share |

The training modules below have been created to help chapters develop exemplary programs and services for CSI members. Each module consists of a set of PowerPoint slides that can be used individually or shown to groups of chapter leaders. They are not narrated or programmed for timed viewing, so users can review them at their own pace.

Chapter Faculty Advisors and other CSI members who would like to obtain continuing education (CE) hours may obtain them by downloading one of the programs and passing the online quiz with a score of 80% or higher. A CE certificate will be automatically generated in your profile (Manage Profile > Professional Development > Certifications/Programs). There is no limit to the number of programs that can be completed for CE hours, and no fee for this membership service.
