For those pursuing the certificate from the same school, each advisor must complete the virtual training (separate registrations) and host the Go Government webinar series in different semesters. Advisors are permitted to participate jointly in the Federal Advisor Strategy Package programming for credit towards the certification.
The certificate of completion is valid for four years for each federal advisor. The period of validity upon completion of the last requirement of the certificate—whether that is the final virtual training, webinar, or component of the second tier programming. After four years, the participant must attend a Federal Advisor Training for renewal of the certificate.
In order to receive a certificate of completion, it is incumbent upon the advisor to notify the Partnership staff by emailing email@example.com at the completion of the requirements for the Federal Advisor Certificate of Completion. Upon verification of completion, the participant will then be mailed a certificate.
Retroactive credit will be extended to all who completed the Virtual Federal Advisor Training in June 2014 for the 2014–2015 Federal Advisor Certificate Program. In order to qualify for the fee deduction please contact firstname.lastname@example.org and specify that you have completed the Virtual Federal Advisor Training in June of 2014.
With the advent of the new Pathways Programs, the Partnership is not able to offer retroactive credit towards a certificate for those who have completed a Federal Advisor Training or the Go Government webinar series before June 2012.
