If you are seeking approval for education that is outside of our approved sources, you need to provide the course description, faculty credentials, and agenda schedule if possible. Your CEO must also sign off on this education.

Trustees must keep track of their individual education. Upon completion of the knowledge assessment you will be asked to list the courses attended.

The THT Trustee Guidebook may be used as a study guide for the knowledge assessment.
