    Continuing Education Units Now Available for OHV Land Advocacy Webinar Series

    Registration is Available for the Fall Sessions

    The National Off-Highway Vehicle Conservation Council (NOHVCC) has partnered with the Marshall Community & Technical College (MCTC), a Marshall University affiliate. This partnership will allow us to provide Continuing Education Units (CEU) for the OHV Land Advocacy webinar series.

    MCTC’s CEU program requires 10 contact hours for each CEU. The full series meets the requirements for 1 CEU. To make things easy for you, MCTC has packaged the full session and will process the certification for the package of all 4 sessions for an administrative fee of only $10.00 If you need the CEU prior to the completion of all sessions, you may apply for the partial CEU for each session attended. The MCTC administration fee for each session is $5.00.

    To sign up for the CEUs, go to the MCTC website and add the NOHVCC sessions into your cart. MCTC will process the application and send you the appropriate certificates for the sessions. While you are at it, check out the other CEU courses offered by MCTC

    If you have not already completed one or more of the 4 separate modules in the series, you may sign up for the fall dates on our webinar page. The modules and the dates are listed below.

    There is no cost to attend the webinar session because the funding for the creation of the webinars was provided by the Motorcycle Industry Council, the Specialty Vehicle Institute of America, and the Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle Association; and the funding for the distribution of the webinars was provided by the Yamaha OHV Access Initiative.
