Pilot Begins for Professional Development Verification Program

The PA Key and Pennsylvania Department of Human Services (DHS) Certification are partnering to pilot verifying professional development currently coordinated by the Registry and are choosing several programs to test this process beginning July 1, 2018.

To ensure one’s PD Registry profile is ready for the DHS Certification, the following steps should be taken:

  • Directors/Administrators: Create an organization profile. If you already have an active profile, it will appear and allow you to update any information.
  • Login and complete your profile. Your profile is a representation of your professional career. You can add your education and past work history.
  • Add your employment. To add your employment, click the “Employment” tab on the top navigation bar. Your director will verify that you are employed by your current center.
  • Locate your Professional Development Learning Record. Certificates are a thing of the past in the new PD Registry. Your Professional Development Learning Record will replace individual certificates and serves as one place for all your completed professional development to live.
