 CE/SSTA Updates: EA Coach Educators and Skills Specific Trainers/Assessors who needed to attend an update in 2020 were extended to 2021. During 2020, an online CE/SSTA Update was trialled as was SSTA accrediation. Both trials were successful.

EA will be developing a calendar for Updates and Accreditaion in 2021 using a variety of methods. 

This is a fluid and constantly changing situation and the health and welfare of our community is the highest priority. We are working hard to provide as much support as possible.
