What about my PD hours?

Use your PD webinar tracking log to record your PD hours from viewing these videos. If you are selected for an audit, you will be asked to produce this log.

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
