Attendance at the AOSA Professional Development Conference affords you the opportunity to earn credit toward advancing your degree or meeting requirements for teacher certification in your school system and state.

Graduate Credit

Graduate credit is an excellent way to get documented hours if your district does not accept the contact/clock hours option. AOSA provides graduate credit through Ashland University. Conference participation can qualify for up to two credit hours.

One Credit Hour: 15 contact hours (2-day attendance required) – cost: approximately $280

Two Credit Hours: 24 contact hours (3-day attendance required) – cost: approximately $460

To register, Visit the Ashland University on-line registration portal.

Contact/Clock Hours

Contact/clock hours are regulated by your local district and state department of education. Ticketed sessions, concerts, and evening events may apply toward contact hours.  We are not an approved clock-hour provider in all 50 states. Check with your local district for prior approval.

Directions to obtain a free certificate of PD contact hours, including attendance verification form, are provided in the printed Conference Book you receive at registration pick-up.

You do NOT have to register in advance for a certificate but must complete the verification log during the conference and submit to AOSA by December 1st for a certificate.

This Complete Guide to Continuing Education for Teachers provides a state-by-state list of contacts and requirements for the local approval process for CEU units or PD contact hours. Attendees are responsible for their own local approval before attending the conference.
