Technical Sessions
NEWEA offers Training Contact Hours (TCHs) and Professional Development Hours (PDHs) for participation in technical sessions. Because technical sessions cover diverse topics ranging from the fundamentals to research, there is something for every attendee.

How many educational credits can I earn at the NEWEA Annual Conference?
At the NEWEA Annual Conference, you can earn up to 2* Training Contact Hours (TCHs) or Professional Development Hours (PDHs) per day by attending technical sessions.

What do I need to know?
NEWEA calculates educational credits* following a standardized method that is widely accepted by many certification and licensing agencies; however, many states differ in the types and/or numbers of credits they will approve for educational events. Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that credits are accepted. Please remember that NEWEA will provide a certificate within 4-6 weeks after the conference to attendees; however, most states require the individual licensee to report continuing education credits.

How do I earn educational credits at NEWEA Annual Conference?
In order to receive educational credits*, you must access the virtual sessions using your unique username and password and your own device. Due to the nature of tracking attendance, multiple attendees accessing sessions using a single username and computer will not be eligible to earn credits. Attendees must attend the entire session and answer two poll questions to be eligible for credits.

*Please Note:  Many states differ in the types and/or numbers of credits they will approve for specific educational events.  Because of this, participants are responsible for exploring their state requirements and for ensuring that NEWEA credits are accepted.
