Keep on Keeping on – Continuing Education for Certified Professional Organizers
Just applied for my third certificate of study from the Institute for Challenging Disorganization. My goal is five by the end of the year. That’ll satisfy 1/3 of my Continuing Education requirements for my NAPO CPO status for the next three years and I’ll surely be serving my clients even more effectively with what I learn. This latest set of classes was about Client Administration. Sounds awfully formal, but it’s just a highfalutin’ way of saying “better methods for monitoring progress and following up with clients, and paying attention to details about your sessions with them.” Always willing to improve those skills.
As a CPO(® , I’m required to acquire 45 Continuing Education Units every three years to be allowed to maintain my status. A course generally takes one hour: it’s a decent bit of new learning over a lifetime. What fascinates me about the materials is that they aren’t just for work: I’m using the concepts with my son, my family. It’s all about relationships, and building stronger relationships with everyone I come into contact with. It’s very satisfying.
