Question:
Do I need pre approval for Team Committee membership in our facility

Answered October 14, 2018
You do not need pre-approval if the committee in your facility is related to WOC products. You will need to submit a pre-approval if you are requesting a point split for the same committee. Please refer to page 17 of the Handbook. Good luck


Question:
Page 22 states that we can claim 1 point per fifteen minutes for a presentation. When entering the data it is asking for number of hours, if I enter 1 hour it does not give me 4 points. How do I get full credit in my portfolio?

Answered October 14, 2018
Sorry you are having this issue. I just tried under my name and the number of points is populating. Please call the WOCNCB office during business hours for assistance. Good luck.

Question:
I sent a message on Monday and have not heard back from anyone. I will re write my question..... In my ostomy Pgp there was a need for clarification which I posted a comment. I have not heard back from reviewer. I hesitate to re submit (since we only have 2 times)Clarification is needed prior to that or do I need to delete (which I don't think I need to do) The two committees the reviewer is speaking about are two different committees. Please advise so that I can complete. Thanks so much

Answered October 11, 2018
When a revision is requested, you must click "Resubmit Application" and if you have not done this, the PGP Committee will not receive the resubmission and will not see your comments or revisions for another review. The resubmit action sends it back out for the next review.


Question:
If one fails the certification tests for the WOCN, do they still have five years post WOC coarse to take the exams?

Yes, you remain eligible for 5 years after graduation of a WOC Education Program and is regardless if you took and failed exams.


Question:
Does academic education points go hand in hand with continuing education points? Meaning, should the grand total for both equal to a total of 40 points or are they counted separately meaning continuing education could be 40 points and academic education can be 10 points?

Answered October 9, 2018
Academic Education is a separate element. You must have 40 of your 80 PGP points relate directly to the specialty and of those 40, 10 must be specialty CEs. Good luck.

Applications are all via online and you will upload copies of the CE documents to each individual CE entry you list when you are entering them within the online application. The online application also allows you to click "mail document" if you are unable to upload it from your computer files.


Question:
I am keeping track of my activities on this web site. I am due for my recert in 2021. I just want to make sure I am adding my activities correctly to my portfolio. Do I have to submit a Pre-approval for each activity that I do? I'm not sure whether an activity is "specialty" or "professional practice." Thank you so much, Tallinn Sacco

Answered October 8, 2018
You DO NOT need to submit every activity for pre-approval. Please review the Handbook to see if an activity falls into a "specialty" activity.The definitions of the activity will help guide you. good luck.
