SCCED Recertification Guidelines

The South Carolina Certified Economic Developer (SCCED) Designation is earned by completing the SCEDA Advanced Symposium program.

All current SCCEDs will be required to renew their certification in August 2014 by earning 24 points. SCCEDs are required to maintain documentation of their continuing education and submit that information upon renewal.

Questions about eligible points must be submitted to the Professional Development Committee. Please direct your questions to sceda@capconsc.com.

Points Eligibility – Professional development activities that are eligible for recertification points should be focused on continuing education, not party/event planning, networking, or work associated with one’s job responsibilities. In addition, as a SCEDA program, SCCED recertification emphasizes participation in SCEDA and attendance at SCEDA-sponsored events.

SCCEDs will be required to earn 24 points per three-year renewal period.

Available credits for SCEDA meetings and seminars during the 3-year time period are listed below. SCCEDs may utilize the SCCED Recertification Tracking Worksheet to compile points - click here for a downloadable worksheet.

The available credits reflect the total amount for each event, assuming that one attended the entire time. However, if a participant only attended a portion of an event, the credits claimed should be reduced to reflect actual attendance.

The committee does not believe that obtaining 24 points of eligible credits over a 3-year period should be difficult. Focus on activities that are SCEDA-related, as outlined above. If your participation in these types of events does not total the required 24 points, then contact the committee for determination on the eligibility of other events/activities.
