Podcastable PD

A new way to PD!

It’s quite simple.

Full-access subscribers can log in, listen to our Podcastable PD episodes, and take a five-minute quiz to receive a certificate of completion. That’s right. You can rack up PD hours in the car, on a jog, or anytime that works best for you.

Not a full-access subscriber? No problem. Anyone can listen to our podcasts on Apple or Spotify for free. Better yet, become a subscriber to get credit!
