When reporting professional development hours, Registrants should be sure to document:
- topic or title or article
- type of activity (ie. webinar, tour, seminar)
- date of activity
- length of activity
- area of practice / relevancy to profession
Review the Professional Development Reporting Guidelines on the values for PD hours.
You can download the Guidelines as a PDF.
