NSTA Conference Transcripts
NSTA offers professional development certification (based on clock hours) for its conferences. The transcript, which lists the sessions attended, also serves as proof of attendance at the conference.
NSTA acknowledges up to 13 clock hours for a virtual conference and 22 clock hours for a national conference. Please note that these hours are not graduate/continuing education units. It is attendees’ responsibility to forward their transcript to the school administration in accordance to their state’s qualifications. NSTA does not send this information to the school administration. Most administrations recognize NSTA conference attendance as professional development credits toward enhancing teachers’ skills and education.
