Where to find Your CEU Certificates
The PA/MD/VA/DC Chapter will post certificates for every course offered at its annual Spring Conference on its website. It will be your responsibility to go to the website and print out the corresponding certificate for each presentation you attended at the conference. The files will be found under the “News” tab at the top. The schedule of each meeting will also be found there to help you print out the correct certificates.
For national meetings you have attended, you must request certificates from personnel at their headquarters. They can produce individual certificates for you if requested but are not going to do it unless asked.
For AAOP conferences, reach out to Molly Mcguire at firstname.lastname@example.org and ask her to produce your certificates from the meeting you attended. Tell her it is for PA licensure.
For AOPA Conferences, email Tina Carlson at email@example.com and ask her to produce certificates from the meeting you attended.
