  •  If an accredited training activity is given in several sessions or if it comprises an evaluation, PDUs are allotted for the date of the beginning of the course.
  • PDUs for a given training activity can only be allotted once during a period of conformity, even if the member has taken the activity more than once.
  • A member who has attended a training activity not yet accredited by the ChAD can present a request to have it accredited.




* A training activity fulfills the ChAD’s requirements when the logo of the ChAD appears on the advertising for the activity. The logo also specifies the category and number of PDUs granted.
