MSBO and MIEM are sponsoring organizations that offer State Continuing Education Clock Hours (SCECH)s for many of our programs. These SCECHs are hours gained by attending programs and are tracked by the Michigan Online Educator Certification System (MOECS). You can access the MOECS at www.michigan.gov/moecs. Any questions regarding this system, please direct to 517.373.3310 or email moecssupport@michigan.gov. These hours can be used to renew your certification. We ask that once a year or at least once in five years, you send us your transcript from MOECS to update your professional development hours. This transcript can be sent to Courtney Byam at cbyam@msbo.org.
