Course Levels To assist members in deciding if a seminar is right for them, a course “level” is included in the course description. A “level” is based on the information the seminar will disseminate and an assumed pre-requisite knowledge of the potential participant.
Introductory – the information in the seminar is basic yet thorough. The potential participant does not deal with the topic area on a day-to-day basis, or they may want to ‘refresh’ their knowledge base on the topic. It is assumed the potential participant has limited knowledge on the topic, such as a new handbook section.
Intermediate – the information in the seminar builds on the basic topic and tends to be more issue based. The potential participant deals with the topic area on a day-to-day basis and needs to be updated on any changes in the topic area. It is assumed the potential participant has the basic knowledge and is familiar with the issues in the topic area.
Advanced – the information in the seminar is in-depth on a specific area of a topic and tends to be more technically specialized. The potential participant deals with the topic area on a day-to-day basis and needs more in-depth information in a specific issue of the topic area. It is assumed the participant has solid background knowledge and is very familiar with the issues in the topic area. They may also specialize or want to specialize in the area.
General – the information in the seminar is appropriate for all participants and requires no specific knowledge level or job function. These are often overview or topical sessions of general interest or focus on the development of professional skills.
