Wrap up your coursework now and we'll see you again at the start of the next Term at noon on Monday, January 4, 2021.
During the scheduled down time, you can still access your Dashboard to save or print Certificates of Completion. There is no student access to courses during scheduled down time. More about the break between terms and other information you might want to know is available in the Frequently Asked Questions: https://aps-community.org/ui-faq/.
If you have APS courses that are incomplete and/or without a passing grade at the end of the term, there is no penalty. You will just need to wait until the next term to access the course again. At that time, you will have two new attempts to pass the course.
Feel free to contact APS User Support at email@example.com if you have questions or require ongoing assistance.
Continuing Education Courses Open
The APS launched the first CE course in a 6-part series developed and sponsored by DOHMH, "Racism: A Public Mental Health Crisis". This CE offering is 1.50 CE hours and the description can be found below:
This course encourages participants to recognize racial inequities in mental health outcomes and access to services. We advocate having potentially uncomfortable conversations about racism & how it impacts the mental health of BIPOC (Black and Indigenous People of Color). We also hope people will recognize that the time is now to take action to uproot racism and there is an urgent need for racial equity & anti-racist work in the field of mental health.
Please check back soon for the remaining CE offerings in this series that will be offered later.
• Racism in Mental Health in NYC: The Journey from Data to Anti-Racist Action at DOHMH
