SEIU 1199NW Healthcare Training Fund

Professional/Technical and Service/Maintenance/LPN Professional Development Reimbursement Form.

Standard processing time once all standard backup documentation received - 30 Days

Eligibility: 
Employees in the Professional/Technical and Service/Maintenance/LPN bargaining units who have passed their probationary period (generally 90 days) at the time of purchase of their Professional Development activity. 

Benefit: 
The Professional Development benefit provides up to $300 per calendar year based on FTE. Employees with an FTE of 0.75 or above are eligible for up to 100% of the $300 per year. Employees with an FTE of 0.5- 0.74 are eligible for 75% of $300 or $225. Employees with an FTE of 0.49 or below may receive 50% of $300 or $150. 

What is covered: 
  • Courses and registration for courses that carry CEU credits as well as required books or media related to a CEU course taken. 
  • National certification exams or courses/review materials that prepare participants for those exams. 
  • Membership in professional organizations that provide access to CEUs as a benefit of membership. Restrictions apply. See instructions below*
Backup Documents Necessary before moving forward:
  1. Proof of Payment/Cost (the detailed invoice/receipt from the organization listing the total amount you paid, the goods/services you paid for, your name, the organizations name, and the date paid).
  2. Proof of Completion (the completion has to show whatever activity you have paid for has been completed entirely. Example: if you paid for 14 CEU's and submit only 2 completed CEU's we will not be able to reimburse you. Example: if you paid for a conference where you will obtain CEU's, we can only reimburse you after proof is provided you obtained the CEU's.)
For Study Materials/activities that are not providing CEU's directly: there is no proof of completion needed, just proof you received the materials, and proof of payment/costs.

For Membership renewals: If we have previously reimbursed you for a membership and you are submitting for a renewal fee, you must provide proof that you earned CEU's with that organization, during the previous membership period. Example: if we reimbursed you for a two year membership from 1/1/2017 - 1/1/2019 and you are renewing it, you would need to provide proof that you obtained CEU's from the membership organization between 1/1/2017 and 1/1/2019 - the period we initially reimbursed you for.
