Here is an excerpt from page 14 (CONTINUING EDUCATION REPORTS):
IIE. CONTINUING EDUCATION
Continuing education is a lifelong process. One of the basic assumptions in any Total Ministry environment is that all ordained, licensed and otherwise empowered ministries engage in continuing education not only throughout them periods of their ministries but throughout all of their lives as Christians. Specific requirements for continuing education have been established for all ordained and licensed ministries in this diocese.

IIE1. Requirements.
Each person ordained or licensed in this diocese is required to report on continuing education activity by I Advent, together with a plan for education in the following year. A suggested form follows:
