Materials to Submit

Sponsor & Instructor Forms

Be sure to fill out all sections of the Sponsor form and the Instructor form, with the exception of the activity number. The activity number will be assigned upon approval.

For help writing your objectives, check out this article from the RID Views.

Evaluation & Summary

RID requires that attendees are given the opportunity to evaluate a workshop upon it's completion. You'll be required to hand out an evaluation and to submit the evaluation you use as well as a summary of the completed evaluations to the sponsor. 

Many people choose to use RID's standard evaluation form & summary sheet. If that's what you decide just let us know.

Many workshop hosts are choosing to use electronic evaluations. These can be helpful in automatically summarizing responses. If you'd like information on how to set this up please let us know!

Certificate of Attendance

Workshop hosts must provide attendees with a certificate of attendance. You are welcome to create your own, or use our sample certificate. If you choose to create your own, please make sure to include all of the required information below.

  • Title of the workshop
  • Name of the Participant
  • Date & Time of the workshop
  • Name of the Sponsor (PCRID - Heather Turell)
  • Activity Number (You will get this when your workshop is approved)
  • Number and category of CEUs.

Advertising Materials

All advertising materials need to be approved by the Sponsor before you begin to advertise. This includes flyers and electronic advertisements. Make sure to include all the below required items on all advertisements.
  • RID CMP and ACET logos.
  • Your refund and cancellation policies
  • The number & type of CEUs (e.g., 2.5 PS CEUs)

Activity Report Forms

You may choose to use the paper sign in sheet that RID provides, this is known as the Activity Report Form. If you choose to use this method, you'll then need to then type the information into the electronic ARF, and submit both to the sponsor. 

Many workshop hosts are choosing to gather this information electronically. If you choose to do this, make sure to capture all of the information that is collected on the RID ARF. It's also helpful to ask for e-mail addresses, that way if there is any incorrect or missing information, we can easily obtain it.

If you'd like more information about electronic sign-ins please let us know!

Instructional Materals

We will need copies of instructional materials used during the workshop. This is to ensure the educational validity of the event. This can include a detailed agenda of the event, speaker notes, powerpoint slides, or any handouts given during the event.
