    Enrolled Agent Exam Preparation This instructor led exam review course is designed for individuals interested in becoming Enrolled Agents through examination. All three parts of the Special Enrollment Examination are covered to provide the necessary content knowledge to confidently approach the required exam. "An enrolled agent is a person who has earned the privilege of practicing, that is, representing taxpayers, before the Internal Revenue Service. Enrolled agents, like attorneys and certified public accountants (CPAs), are unrestricted as to which taxpayers they can represent, what types of tax matters they can handle, and which IRS offices they can practice before."* Prepare for the three separate exams with the popular review material that includes a test bank with approximately 3,500 practice questions to set you on the road for success. To become an enrolled agent the IRS requires individuals to achieve passing scores on all three parts of the Special Enrollment Examination and pass a background check to ensure that individuals have not engaged in any conduct that would justify the suspension or disbarment of an attorney, CPA, or enrolled agent from practice before the IRS. Materials included in the course fee. *definition from IRS.gov website

    Anyone who supervises staff knows that it can be a very time-consuming part of your job. We developed the Supervisory Skills series to give supervisors the skills they need to make effective supervision almost second nature. The series is divided into three parts currently offered in fall, winter and spring with each part focusing on a different key area of supervision.

    Supervisory Skills I: Principles of Supervision
    Supervisors have the responsibility to manage not only their own time and performance, but their staff's as well. Designed for new supervisors with little or no formal training, as well as experienced supervisors looking for new strategies to motivate, manage and communicate, this series provides real-world knowledge that can be applied immediately. Each program is comprised of three or four one-day sessions that have a very specific focus. Ideally, supervisors take the complete three-part series for an in-depth learning experience. However, each program is designed to stand alone as is each one-day session. This allows you the flexibility to enroll in the complete series, take just one program or select the individual sessions that are most relevant to your needs. Receive a certificate of completion after finishing Supervisory Skills I, II and III.

    Principles of Supervision Courses:
    - Understanding Your Role as Supervisor
    - How To Avoid Litigation Landmines
    - Communicating Effectively
    - Managing Differences and Resolving Conflict

    Supervisory Skills II - Performance Management
    Become an effective mentor, and increase your retention rate. Learn to help all of your staff members do the best jobs they can. Your team in only as strong as its weakest link, and knowing how to effectively manage performance is a critical step in achieving a strong, productive team.

    Performance Management Courses:
    - How To Navigate Through Change
    - Developing People
    - Coaching and Mentoring: Developing Employees and Getting Results

    Supervisory Skills III - Team Development
    New and Experienced supervisors will benefit by learning new strategies for motivating, managing and communicating with their staff. Seasoned supervisors will gain new perspectives on their role as supervisor in addition to learning innovative, practical supervisory skills they can apply immediately. Develop the knowledge to build a high performance team. Examine strategies for effectively motivating and resolving conflict within your team. Learn to spend less time supervising by creating a team that is eager and confident. Become so proficient that supervision is almost second nature.

    Prospect Lists Continuing Education (CE) Prospect List is a list of participants interested in future enrollment in a particular CE class. Most classes for which CE creates a prospect list have been scheduled in past catalogs but did not make due to low enrollment. Yet, CE still receives requests for that class. The purpose of the prospect lists is identify enough potential students interested in a particular course and offer the class on a proposed date specifically for the participants on the list.

    By putting your name on a prospect list, you are indicating that you have a serious interest in registering for the particular class. Our staff will contact you approximately 2 weeks prior to the proposed start date to let you know the status. The status may be that CE has enough enrollment for the class to make; there is not enough interest and CE will keep you on the prospect list; or there has not been enough interest and CE will not continue the prospect list for that class.

    Please contact e-mail us at cedregistrations@uta.edu or contact our office at 817.272.2581 if you have any questions regarding Prospect Lists.

    People Powered Safety: Applying Human Dynamics for Injury Prevention


    32 Hours | $995

    Contract Price: $11,000


    Description:

    This spirited, research-based training course will specify practical ways to facilitate the self-motivation needed to achieve and sustain a Total Safety Culture. An injury-free culture requires people to do the right things for safety when working and driving, this requires self-accountability and self-motivation. This is for everyone, it includes the principles and procedures which can be applied beyond safety to build trust and caring to improve the overall quality of conversations, relationships, coaching and risk perceptions in the workplace. This training extends and refines the content in behavior based safety by addressing the person-based factors to improve safety on the job. We focus on thoughts and attitudes that can influence safe behavior, drawing on extensive research to discuss the psychology of safety before focusing on four key skills that promote safety- Acting, Coaching, Thinking, and Seeing. This training will help guide and educate people on social influence, which will improve attitude and behavior, as well as the ABC model of behavior looking at social skills and training for coaching. We also address communication skills, how to communicate effectively, persuading and teaching people to do the safe behavior. We will also examine how to properly collect and analyze behavioral data, how to assess where people are and goal setting, how to set smart goals. This training coursed is both a psychological study and helpful guide for achieving the Total Safety Culture you seek for your organization.

    SafetyCompass™ - Dynamic Safeguarding in the Workplace

    $995/32 Hours

    Incidents occur in dynamic, constantly changing and often unpredictable environments. Various mechanical and procedural safeguards are used to mitigate the risk of incidents occurring. Such safeguards are necessary and have proven effective; but they are limited by their static nature. These safeguards are usually fixed, non-responsive and slow to adapt, leaving them inherently inadequate to mitigate risks in dynamic work environments. People, on the other hand, are suited to serve as a dynamic safeguard against incidents. When front-line employees see something unsafe in the moment, they are uniquely positioned to stop it and prevent it from resulting in an incident. However, employees often fail to fulfill this role. This training gives participants a thorough understanding of safeguarding issues, presents solutions, case studies and exercises relevant to the ESH field, which will then enable participants to implement solutions within their organizations.
