Step 1: Advise the centre that you wish to be accredited for your fieldwork at the time of booking. We will then schedule a course event for you (allow a couple of days for processing of your request) for the day of your fieldwork. Email Observatory Hill EEC [email protected] using your DET email with the following details: full name, employee number, school and date of your booked fieldwork and fieldwork program.

Step 2: Register as a participant. Go [email protected], under MY Applications on the DET Intranet. Search for your scheduled event under course code RG00333, under Observatory Hill EEC with the date corresponding to your excursion day. Register for the course.

Step 3: Once registered, we will confirm your registration on-line in [email protected] and you will receive an email to confirm this. Please get back if no email is forthcoming.

NB: The 4 hours accreditation for this course can only be accredited once, as the methodology is generic for planning fieldwork 7-12 for all programs offered by EECs.
