Continuing Education

The Montessori Event offers valuable opportunities for professional development and career advancement.

Continuing Professional Development Hours (CPDs)

Certificates of earned CPD hours have been emailed to all attendees. If your record of attendance is incorrect, you may contact us by August 31, 2019 to have your scan history adjusted. Or if you did not receive your certificate, contact us by August 31, 2019 and we will send you a new one. We regret that effective September 1, 2019, these services will no longer be available.

To receive CPD hours, you had to have had your conference badge scanned at qualifying events. Qualifying events were workshops, pre-conference intensives, learning labs, keynote addresses, networking sessions, day of service, and school tours. CPD hours are not transferable as college or university credit hours. Attendance to earn CPD hours was tracked utilizing scanning technology in order that our CPD hours are acceptable to as many states as possible.

Full conference registration gave you access to free events Thursday through Sunday. By attending these events you were able to earn up to 27.5 CPD hours.

The number of CPDs for workshops is equal to the duration of that workshop. For example, a 1.25 hour workshop granted 1.25 CPD hours. Exceptions were longer workshops with breaks, school tours, and the day of service. Half-day school tours granted 3 CPD hours, full-day school tours granted 6 CPD hours, and the day of service granted 6 CPD hours.
