Continuing Education for Public Library Directors

BadgerLink trainings are planned, coordinated, administered, and evaluated in terms of learning objectives. These trainings review and instruct the participants on searching and reference skills, update participants on new BadgerLink developments, and share ways to enhance your library skills.


Continuing education contact hours may be earned in Category B by attending a live BadgerLink webinar session, or viewing an archived webinar in a group setting sponsored by a library agency or organization that included organized discussion or chat.


Self-directed continuing education contact hours may be earned in Category C by individually viewing an archived BadgerLink webinar during which there is no participant interaction or discussion.


Some BadgerLink webinars offer opportunities to earn contact hours toward the 10-hour technology credit requirement. To obtain credit for attending a BadgerLink session, complete and submit a Continuing Education Activity Report form in sufficient detail to your public library system validator that includes the program provider, title and description of program, date(s), location, and number of contact hours offered.
