Pre-Approval (for training providers)
Providers/sponsors of continuing education programs apply for PDH pre-approval via this application form. They must supply information including required training content, and speaker bio information. The form must be completed, and submitted with the appropriate fee at least 30 days before the training date.
EAPA Chapters/Branches may submit up to ten blocks of training for the $30.00 fee. For all other providers of education, the application fee is $60.00 for the first block of training and $10.00 for each additional block of training. If you need multiple trainings to be approved, there is a considerable savings if you submit a multi-session application.
Applications and "block of training forms" must be filled out completely, including submission of learning objectives, a description of course/session content, and speaker bios. An initial date of training must be assigned even for ongoing webinars/series. Educational activities can only be approved for PDH credit in advance of the initial training date. Approvals are good for one year following the date of the Certificate of Approval.
Conferences/multi-day educational events
Conferences cannot be approved as a whole, as a separate EACC approval number is required for each educational activity. Each educational activity (keynote, workshop, breakout session) must be submitted on a separate "block of training form." Appropriate fees apply, as per the table below.
If your training session is approved, the EACC will assign a job performance Domain number and send you a letter of approval. All courses are approved for one year from the date of review and may be presented multiple times during that year.
The Domains are:
Domain I: EA Program Design, Administration and Management
Domain II: EA Services to the Organization
Domain III: EA Services to Employees and Family Members.
A proof of participation, including the name of the sponsor, name of attendee, title of the course, EACC approval #, Domain, date completed, and number of approved PDHs, should be given to all participants at the end of the training session. This information may be included on the same proof of participation with the approval information for other certifications and/or licensing boards.
