Online Course Evaluation – How it works:

We are trying a new process for course evaluations using our online course system. We hope this will ultimately provide a smoother experience for you by allowing you to access your certificate immediately after completing the course evaluation. Here is how it works:

After the live meeting ends, you will receive an email with an evaluation access code.

  1. Log into this online course
  2. Under Course Content, click “Step 1: Access Evaluation” and follow the instructions to enter the code.
  3. After you enter the code, you will be able to continue to the next step of the course and complete the evaluation.
  4. After you submit the evaluation, click Mark Complete and you will be able to download or print your certificate. The certificate will also be emailed to you as a PDF.

Often with emerging adults we hear, “They’re just experimenting.”  But, we’re given precious little information to evaluate where risk lies, how trouble can occur, and when transitions happen.  Based on the evidence-based program Prime For Life, this presentation will introduce participants to a simple formula to explain how biology, social factors, psychological factors, and choices work together to create outcomes.  In addition, it will define the Phases of Use, provide markers for understanding where people are in the Phases, and describe factors that can influence progression, as well as important transition points.  Participants will learn about experiences that mark progress through these Phases.
