What are SCECHs?
State Continuing Education Clock Hours, or SCECHs, are credit hours earned through state approved in-service, workshops, trainings, or conferences. These credits are used for the renewal of selected certificates issued by the Michigan Department of Education.

- Professional Education certificate

What opportunities do I have to earn SCECHs?
View the Catalog of Professional Learning Programs for current offerings in Midland County and other counties throughout the state of Michigan.
Where is my SCECH transcript located?
Educators can view their SCECHs on Michigan Online Educator Certification System’s (MOECS) Secure Central Registry also known as SCR.
How do I access my account?
Evaluatrions and transcripts are matched to your account through your Personal Identification Code (PIC). This is a mandatory requirement to receive SCECHs through MOECS. For instructions on how to register please visit the MOECS website.
How do I receive SCECHs?
The SCECH coordinator uploads qualifying participant records to SCR. An automated email is sent to each participant with instructions to complete an online evaluation. SCECHs are processed when the evaluation is completed and matched to your registered PIC number.
Are SCECHs the same as CEUs?
No. Generic CEUs cannot be used toward the renewal of certificates and do not meet administrative continuing education requirements.
