Please remember that all DWI Education and Drug Offender Education instructors must attend a DSHS Inservice
within their 2 year certification period. Under TAC Rule § 453.105, instructors who are licensed chemical
dependency counselors, licensed professional counselors, licensed psychologists, licensed psychiatrists, or licensed
social workers may submit 20 hours of continuing education that is directly drug or alcohol-related (as applicable)
and approved by the department's Offender Education Group, in lieu of attending the in-service. (Please see the rule
for more specifics.) This inservice also provides 16 (for Combined and DOEP) or 10.5 (for DWI Education)
courtesy CEUs for LPCs, and LCDCs. Probation Officers must have their continuing education certificate approved
by their chief to obtain hours. TCLEOSE has indicated they will also accept the continuing education hours for
peace officers, with proper approval.

This inservice will begin promptly on Monday, November 2 at 8:00 am and will conclude by 1:00 pm on
Wednesday November 4. In order to obtain credit for this inservice and the certificate of completion, all
participants are expected to be on time and complete all applicable sessions in their entirety. There is a cafeteria
in the Administration Building and vending machines are available for snack purchases, as none can be provided.
We also encourage you to bring a jacket to the inservice, as temperatures in the room may be cool.

Enrollment is limited and admittance will be based on a first-come-first-serve basis. The cost of the training is
$290.00 for DOEP Inservice (only), $195.00 for DWIE Inservice (only) or $320.00 for DOEP & DWIE
Combined Inservice. All fees are non-refundable. A $50 late fee will be applied to payments received
after the deadline of October 19, 2009. DO NOT SUBMIT PAYMENT TO DEPARTMENT OF STATE
HEALTH SERVICES—please follow the instructions below.

Please complete the Registration Form and submit it to DSHS no later than October 19, 2009. Payments
are to be submitted to The University of Texas at Austin along with the attached invoice, no later than
October 19, 2009. Once your payment and acceptance form have been received by the appropriate agencies,
you are considered enrolled. Absolutely no registrations or payments will be accepted after 5pm on Monday
October 26, 2009. If you have questions concerning the inservice, please contact Offender Education at 800-
832-9623, x2910.
