There are more than 60 hours of educational workshops, presentations, and experiential learning opportunities through this year’s conference! For those of us who need to periodically demonstrate our life-long learning to professional credentialing organizations, documentation for these hours is important.

To document continuing education credits, participants will be required to

  1. complete the evaluation for each workshop attended AND
  2. complete the documentation form at the end of the conference to get a tally of workshop hours on a certificate of completion.

For some participants, that tally of hours will be all you need to get sign-off from your employer or credentialing agency. Fabulous then. You are done.

For Yoga Alliance, the process is pretty simple. Take your certificate – which we are helpfully breaking down into Yoga Alliance CE categories for you – and enter it into you YA account (primary trainer Jennifer Mueller, Executive Director of National Kids Yoga Conference, YA E-RYT-200 / RCYT / YACEP and all the workshop presenters have a relevant degree, certification or substantial education in the subject that he or she will teach.)

If your credentialing organization requires university-approved continuing education hours, we’ve got you covered. The conference is partnering with Courses4Teachers to issue graduate-level professional development units/credits through the University of the Pacific. Every 15 hours of conference participation is eligible for 1 PDU, so the whole conference could be worth up to 4 and it is possible to earn additional credits associated with professional activities you do as an extension of the conference, such as adapting lesson plans in response to new information and skills. The cost for each PDU is only $99. See the detailed instructions on the Courses4Teachers website.
