Professional development opportunities are offered by PASAP through webinars, regional workshops, and the annual conference in order to support school and child-serving agencies in Pennsylvania.
As a result, PASAP offers special recognition to Student Assistance Professionals who go above and beyond to continually enhance the services they provide through continuing education. This is our PASAP Advanced Certificate of Professional Development.

Most if not all school districts have a procedure in place as a part of their Act 48 plan. If approved, the district will submit the hours to PDE.
Social Work credits will be offered again this year. These credit hours satisfy requirements for LSW/LCSW, LPC and LMFTA. A payment of $10 will be collected from interested participants at the time of conference check-in. In order to receive credit for each keynote and breakout session, participants must be present for the entire session and complete an evaluation survey for each session attended.
