Teachers


Certificate of Completion
You will be able to access and print a completion certificate from your account once you complete your course(s).  Your completion certificate will reflect the name of the course you completed and the number of hours it represents.

Are your courses accepted at my school? Can I receive CEUs (Continuing Education Credits) or clock hours?

Because each district has its own policies regarding course eligibility, always double-check with your district or department of education regarding eligibility for credit before enrolling in a course. Continuing education is the final decision of your school district, continuing education committee or other relevant authority. PDR does not guarantee acceptance by your school, district or licensing authority.
