There are 4 categories of training displayed on your PDR.  Trainings are categorized by the quality assurance process they go through and whether or not attendance is verified.

  • Registry-Approved Trainings
    • The quality assurance process is known and attendance is verified.
    • Bring your Registry Member ID card to Registry-Approved trainings and sign in using your Member ID Number. 
    • Attendance is verified when the trainer/agency submits the sign-in sheet to the Registry.
    • These trainings show up automatically on your PDR.
  • Registry-Verified Conferences
    • The quality assurance process is known and attendance is verified.
    • You attend the conference and receive a certificate with bar codes identifying which sessions you attended. 
    • Attendance is verified when you submit a copy of your conference certificate (with barcodes for each session attended).
    • These sessions show up on your PDR soon after you submit a copy of your conference certificate.
  • Attendance-Verified Conferences and Trainings
