Professional Development Hours

Documenting Professional Development Hours

Professional development and continuing education are offered through AWRA events, conferences, and webinars. Self-reporting forms are available for each conference and certificates of attendance are offered for each live and recorded webinar.


AWRA has instituted a self-reporting system for Professional Development Hours (PDHs). To meet education requirements for license renewal, conference attendees should report their session attendance directly to their licensing organization(s). Please note that self-reporting is an honor system. It places the onus on the individual to report PDHs to their licensing body. The following caveats apply to this PDH policy:

  1. AWRA will not notify the licensing organizations concerning earned PDHs. This is the responsibility of the attendee.
  2. AWRA will not keep session records or enter PDHs in its record keeping system.
  3. Most importantly, AWRA cannot guarantee acceptance of the PDHs by licensing boards.


If you actively engage in our community, your career and organization will benefit. We offer multiple opportunities for engagement via conferences, social media, webinars, committees and publications.
