Course Description

This course is for individuals who received their Credential for Strengths-based Family Workers (SFW) and need to obtain their recredential.

Section Notes

Thank you for your participation in the SFW Credential program! Anyone that completed their credential/recredential in 2017 is due for recredentialing. The deadline to complete this is December 31, 2020. The course will be run in Temple University’s learning management system, called Canvas. In order to access Canvas and begin, there are a few steps we need to complete.

  1. After you are registered, you will receive an automated email with the subject line “Temple University System Access”. This email gives you steps to activate your Temple University account. The account at Temple is called an AccessNet, and this will be different than the account you’ve created at the noncredit.temple.edu (DestinyOne) site.
  2. Following the instructions in the “Temple University System Access” email will take you to accounts.temple.edu, where you’ll input your TU ID (included in the email-9 digit number), your last name, and your Date of Birth. Please note that if you enter different information than you provided Temple University in your initial class registration, you will see an error message on the account activation page and should contact destiny1@temple.edu for a fix.

Within a few minutes after activating your AccessNet, the learning management system access will be completed, and you will be able to start your online participation in the course.

To log into Canvas directly go to canvas.temple.edu or log in to TUportal. Under TUapplications on the left, select Canvas. Use your TU AccessNet to log into Canvas. This is different than the DestinyOne Username and password.

Accessing Your Course:

In the menu bar on the left, click Dashboard. Then select the course that you want to access.

Note: If you do not see your course in the Dashboard, click the Courses menu. If the course appears, you can add it to your Dashboard by clicking the star to the left of the course so that it becomes orange.
