Professional Development Credits

Administrative and instructional personnel must complete either six semester hours or 180 clock hours (or combination of both) within a five-year reporting period. Your reporting period ends on June 30, five years after your date of employment. You can earn credits by taking courses offered through Learning Connection, college courses and various other activities, approved by your supervisor.

  • To request Professional Development Credit hours, please submit the request through the TIM system.
  • For an explanation of what qualifies for Professional Development Credit, check the PDC Guidelines.

Requesting Professional Development Credit

To receive professional development credit, you must submit a request for credit through the TIM system after completing the educational event. To request credit: access the TIM system, and under Human Resources, select "Request Professional Development Credit."

  • For credit courses: Select "Credit Course" and enter the credits earned per term (usually 3). The system will automatically multiply the course hours by 30 hours. For example: If you take a college course for 3 credit hours, the system will award you 90 professional development credit hours.
  • For seminar/workshop and Dell Learning System programs: Enter the actual number of hours that you participated in the program. For example: If you attended a one-hour Lunch and Learn program, click "Seminar/Workshop" and enter 1 hour. Or, if it took you four hours to complete the Dell online Excel course, click "Dell Learning System" and enter four hours.
