iHCPL - Spring 2009

New to the system? Been here awhile, but haven't done the original iHCPL? Now is the time to catch up and see what you missed out on! The program will run between Monday, February 2 and Friday, May 29 and is worth 10 training hours.

To get credit, you need to do all 23 things. At four times during the program, you will submit your exercises through electronic forms to get credit and bling.

  • Week 2 #3: Register your blog (covers weeks 1 & 2)
  • Week 5 #12: Submit your exercises for weeks 3-5
  • Week 8 #19: Submit your exercises for weeks 6-8
  • Week 10 #23: Submit your exercises for weeks 9 & 10
This is an optional and voluntary program. You can work at your own pace during the program; just be sure to complete all exercises to get training credit by Friday, May 29. Note: All blog posts must be dated after February 2, 2009 to get credit.

Don't forget, you can also participate in individual modules of iHCPL: The Next Generation.
