10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Information session on the proposed updates to the Authentication Practice Standard.

Register by September 10, 2018, at 9:00 a.m.

Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Advanced Ethical Decision Making

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. In “Advanced Ethical Decision-making” you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills and personal confidence. In "Advanced Ethical Decision-making" you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

When you participate in this session, you will :

  • Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  • Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral Sensitivity
    • Moral Judgment
    • Moral Motivation
    • Moral Character (action)
  • Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision- making to ethical dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  • Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Assertiveness: A Powerful Communication Skill For Career Success

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Register by October 19, 2018

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.

Information Session: Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

10:00 am - 3:00 pm

Information session on the proposed updates to the Authentication Practice Standard.

Register by October 29, 2018, at 9:00 a.m.

Proposed Updates to the Authentication Standard

Understanding and properly implementing authentication, particularly in the digital space, is one of the most talked-about challenges licensed professionals face in their practice. The Authentication Standard Subject Matter Panel, consisting of subject matter experts and a select group of permit holders, has updated APEGA's Authenticating Professional Documents (now titled Authenticating Professional Work Products) practice standard to improve definitions and add clarity to this important professional responsibility.

Some changes to the practice standard include:

  • defining professional work products to enable licensed professionals to better determine what should be authenticated
  • defining a Responsible Member's validation of professional work products
  • standardizing authentication and validation formats to enable licensed professionals, permit holder, and the public to easily identify the authenticator and the validator, as well as the dates of authentication and validation
  • discussing the uses of digital technology to authenticate professional work products
  • setting the requirements for the authentication of professional work products imported into or exported from Alberta
  • providing considerations for the retention and storage of authenticated professional work products

Advanced Ethical Decision Making

8:30 am - 4:30 pm

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. In “Advanced Ethical Decision-making” you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

APEGA professionals occupy a very important position in relation to public trust. There is an assumption of integrity and the application of the highest ethical principles and standards in the protection of both the public and the profession itself. This is not a simple or easy task. It requires sensitivity to ethical issues and the ability to use ethical judgment. It also requires the motivation to do the right thing. Most difficult of all is the commitment to take action that requires courage, persistence, overcoming obstacles, influencing skills and personal confidence. In "Advanced Ethical Decision-making" you will consider each one of these four requirements and apply your thinking to real dilemmas that professionals like you face.

When you participate in this session, you will:

  • Identify ethical dilemmas facing APEGA professionals and discuss the personal and organizational obstacles associated with taking ethical action.
  • Review the four-step model of ethical action developed by James Rest and the challenges inherent in each step:
    • Moral Sensitivity
    • Moral Judgment
    • Moral Motivation
    • Moral Character (action)
  • Apply a comprehensive model for ethical decision- making to ethical dilemmas that include action planning and influence.
  • Develop a plan to address both personal and organizational challenges associated with ethical decision-making and action-taking.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.

Climbing Mount Everest is considered one of mankind's greatest feats of human endurance. The two-month expedition to the top of the world's highest peak is a project filled with unparalleled physical and mental challenges through some of the most extreme conditions imaginable. Alan Mallory took on the challenge and set a world record when he, along with three members of his immediate family, reached the summit of Everest.  From teetering across ladders spanning seemingly bottomless crevasses and fighting the many altitude-related sicknesses to climbing through a blizzard in the dead of night, every segment of the climb was filled with intense, extraordinary challenges.

In today's fast-paced, complex and often uncertain work world, the ability to communicate really well is critical to career success. Asserting yourself is part attitude, part skill acquisition. Assertiveness is a learned communication technique that will consistently put you in control of the outcome.

Assertiveness helps individuals break unproductive communication patterns, minimize defensiveness, solve problems and build trust in relationships. Learning how to express one's opinion, provide feedback to others and respond to criticism are all good reasons for becoming an assertive communicator.

In this experiential workshop, participants will understand the advantages of being assertive, reasons people are not assertive, know that an assertive communicator is never aggressive, and how passive behavior can lead to ineffectiveness and high dissatisfaction.

Upon completion of this seminar, you will be able to:

  • Understand reasons people are not assertive and the advantages of being assertive.
  • Compare and recognize passive, aggressive and assertive communication techniques.
  • Examine current personal assertiveness skill level.
  • Practice an assertive formula.
