What about my PD hours

Use your PD webinar tracking log to record your PD hours from viewing these videos. Keep the completed tracking log. You will only be asked to submit this log if you are audited for proof of professional development.

Two ways to use the webinar tracking log:

  • Download and save the fillable pdf webinar tracking log to your computer before making entries to it to ensure that the information you enter is being saved properly, or
  • If you’d prefer a hard-copy format, print the webinar tracking log. If you are audited, you would then be asked to mail or scan it.
