Conference Attendance and Continuing Education Credit Eligibility

In order to be eligible for conference attendance and/or continuing education credit, you must register for each individual session for which you are applying for credit and/or attendance. You will not receive credit, or be marked in attendance, for any sessions for which you have not registered.

 

Conference Registrants can access the Continuing Education Credit Verification Survey on the Chime Live app.

The deadline for completing evaluations is March 12, 2021.



 

Act 48 Clock Hours (up to 8)

The conference Act 48 evaluation survey is entirely online and can be accessed at Continuing Education Credits on the Chime Live app. Act 48 Clock Hours will be awarded on a per session basis. At the end of each session, the facilitator of the event will provide attendees with a unique 4-digit code necessary to complete the evaluation survey. Participants should login individually from a computer or iPad for each conference session on time, stay the duration of the webinar session and complete the corresponding attendance/evaluation survey by the designated deadline in order to be eligible for Act 48 Professional Education clock hours.  No credit will be awarded for those who attend by phone (audio) alone. Attendees must submit the Act 48 evaluation by the designated deadline.

On the survey, attendees must enter their PPID number, as well as the exact spelling of their First and Last Name and Middle Initial, exactly how it appears in the PaTTAN registration system. If this is different from the information in the Professional Education Record Management System, that must be indicated.


Attendees can find their PERMS information and PPID here: Public Access (pa.gov)

Reminder: All Act 48 Clock Hours at the conference will be awarded per session.
