History:
The CPE office was established in 2014 in order to create a more conducive environment for the College to provide continuing education to the professionals in forestry and natural resources. Some of you may remember that the CoF once had a "Conference Services" office that aided faculty and staff in creating and offering CPE events. The revival of the CPE office is not meant to emulate the previous CoF Conference Services, but to provide a coordinated and supported effort of various CPE opportunities throughout the college. The new CPE office will work with you and other necessary entities to ensure that your event goes off without a hitch- and that all you need to do is show up and teach!
