  • Getting education hours posted with TCOLE

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone know the process of submitting your college transcripts to TCOLE so you can receive hours for it? I think they give you 3 TCOLE hours for every 1 credit of of college. Does that sound right to you guys?

    Thanks for the help.

    It's called college education request form. I think there is a cost associated with it so it's usually done by your department.

      I sent them a copy of my college transcript a long time ago... when it was TCLEOSE. There was a form, but I don't remember a fee.

          My Department sent mine through TCLEEDS, no cost, no paperwork, just the submission form. They do keep a copy of my college transcripts in my personnel file in case we ever get audited.

            I know this may be a dumb question but I work for a small 4 man dept. Do you think they will be familiar with this process your describing? Guess i can ask. Lol

              Yeah it's $35 if you send in the form, TCOLE charges for everything now. When you get your intermediate, advanced, or masters certification they no longer automatically send it to you, you have to pay $35 bucks, same with academic recognition award.

              Your department should have somebody set up on TCLEEDS to report training and stuff, so you should be good. My first department had my stuff added my first day, I have taken several classes since then but I am just waiting until I finish my masters degree and do it all at once.

                Baylor, I may be wrong, but the $35 only needs to be paid if you want a certificate sent to you. An agency can add your hours through TCLEEDS for free, now if you want an academic prof. certificate than you will need to pay.

                Banker,

                It's an easy process, I just logged on to TCLEEDS and went over the submission process. All your agency needs to do is submit an F7 via Tcleeds..

                    Yes, if you want the certificate(s), but they used to mail them to you automatically and I have been told of lore where they actually sent it framed to you before that. I know they got 70 of my dollars for my intermediate and for my academic recognition award, in which it says I have a Bachelor degree rather than a Bachelor's Degree. Guess I'm skilled in the art of being a bachelor, just don't tell my wife.

                      Well this is all great information. Sounds lije its a very simple process. It will cost me 35 dollars if I want the certificate in hand but if all I want is the hours posted, it will be free.

                      Once again, I really appreciate all of you jumping in to help me out.

                        On the TCOLE website there is a specific form for this. If you create your TCOLE "profile" it is under one of the headings. It is real easy to navigate. If your agency has a training cordinator, let them do it.

                          Thank you for the info. I don't think we have a training coordinator. I am sure the Chief does it. Maybe after I get a little experience and have proven myself a bit...Maybe he would let me take on that role of being training coordinator. That might look nice when I apply to a larger dept.
