Does CEC offer Professional Development Hours (PDHs)?
CEC offers 1 Professional Development Hour (PDH) for each hour of live webinar instruction. Anyone who attends an event, either as an individual or as part of a group, is eligible to apply for PDHs.
How do I apply?
Upon completion of a webinar, a follow-up email is sent to the event registrant. Included in the email is a link to fill out a survey and provide your contact information so that we may send you a PDH transcript. Transcripts will be mailed 4-6 weeks following the event. If you are not the registrant but you attended as part of a group you can still apply for PDHs. Have the registrant forward you the follow-up email, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to receive the follow-up email directly. Be sure to include your name, email address, and the title of the webinar you attended.
Professional Development Hours are not available for recorded webinars.
Are CEC PDHs valid for teacher recertification?
This is determined on a state by state basis. If you plan to use CEC PDHs toward recertification, please check with your state's department of education or certifying body to be sure CEC PDHs are accepted.
