With each state/district having different requirements for what they accept for PD, we offer certificates stating the hours you have completed or you can also register for university credit. The information and links below are for BMM membership videos. If you are taking a full course (Number Sense 101, Number Sense 201, etc) there are special links for those courses under your My Courses area.
Some training series inside BMM have certificates that you can request right inside the training once you finish them (which get delivered in the My Certificates area of the site). However, most trainings don’t have certificates you can earn. If you need a certificate of completion for trainings you watch that don’t have a certificate you can fill out a spreadsheet listing out the trainings you watch inside BMM and then email that to us (firstname.lastname@example.org). Then we double check that with what the backend of the site shows that you have completed and we can email you a certificate stating how many hours you have watched PD. **Make sure you are marking videos complete when you finish watching them.
The other option is doing university credits through Brandman University or Northwest Nazarene University.
Northwest Nazarene University: They charge $60/credit and you can earn one credit for every 15 hours of video you complete. There is a timeline within which you need to register for the credits and to complete the videos (see info on NNU’s site using registration links). The credits through NNU are Pass/Fail grades. Go here to register with NNU for their credit:
- 1 credit (15 hours of video completed): http://pdlearn.nnu.edu/modules/shop/index.html?action=section&OfferingID=1219501&SectionID=1892369
- 2 credits (30 hours of video completed): http://pdlearn.nnu.edu/modules/shop/index.html?action=section&OfferingID=1219501&SectionID=1892423
- 3 credits (45 hours of video completed): http://pdlearn.nnu.edu/modules/shop/index.html?action=section&OfferingID=1219501&SectionID=1892465
**These NNU links change with each new semester**
Brandman University: Brandman charges $150/credit and you can earn between 1-3 credits in their independent study course. You do earn a letter grade for the credits through Brandman. The timeline for completion is set up when you enroll in this Independent Study course.
