I did not see the form for entering the codes for CEUs, how do I get that?

Please email help@nationaldeafcenter.org for assistance.

I have the correct codes from the live event, but I am getting an error message, can you help?

The codes are case and character sensitive.  You must submit the codes exactly as displayed and make sure no additional spaces are added before, after or in the middle.  Please also check that the email address you used is entered correctly.

Is there a deadline when I must submit my PD Credit for a Live Event?

You have 30 days from the Live Event date to submit the codes for professional development credit. We will not accept any submissions later than 30 days.

What happens after I complete the link that provides CEUs?

For RID:

We submit CEUs once a month to RID and it may take time for RID to process all CEUs for transcript purposes. In general, CEU processing can take anywhere from 45-60 days. If you do not see your CEUs on your RID transcript after 60 days please contact help@nationaldeafcenter.org 

For CRC:

Upon successful completion of your form, an email will be sent to you automatically with your CRC certificate.

How do I get a certificate of attendance for the event?

Event codes are shared at the beginning and end of the live event. You can complete the link provided with the event codes, follow the instructions to generate a certificate.  You can leave the line asking for RID number blank.  A certificate of attendance will then be emailed to you.

Can I receive a printable version of my certificate?

Unfortunately, the survey system we use to generate certificates does not permit us to send printable versions.

We recommend checking your SPAM folder of the email you registered with to see if it is there. If you cannot find the email contact us at help@nationaldeafcenter.org and we will confirm we received your registration.
