Employee ID numbers are required on all professional development sign-in sheets. With the adoption of Colleague as a professional development tracking system,employees cannot be entered into the class and given credit without their ID number. Please remember to use your ID number so that we can credit your transcripts.
Effective February 2015, a District-wide professional development dashboard will reflect all training hours for each college which has been requested by the DCCCD Board of Trustees. It is extremely important that you report your professional development sessions so we can receive credit.
Please note: professional development hours are now referred to as professional developments units (PDUs).
If you are planning on offering a professional development session at North Lake College,you must fill out your Request in order for the training to show up on the dashboard and enable participants to receive credit on their transcripts. Remember if the employee number is NOT on the sign-in form, NO credit will be given.
