Continuing Education Credits-PDH/TCH
Can I receive PDHs or TCHs for attending IWPC?

IWPC technical sessions are approved by IEPA Total Credit Hours (TCH) and are eligible for PDH’s (professional development hours).  By having the QR code on your badge scanned at each session you attend, you will receive a transcript showing what you attended, how many credits you earned, and the IEPA Course Number.

Credit hours will be tracked based on time in each session. Most sessions are 30 minutes long plus Q&A. a transcript documenting .5 PDH/TCH will be issued for each session where the scanned attendance time is equal to 25 minutes or longer. Partial credit for 30 minute technical sessions will not be given.

How do I report my continuing educational hours?

Illinois operators can use the issued transcript with course #’s to easily log their operator educational requirements earned on IEPA’s OpCert page.

Illinois is a self-reporting state. Therefore, you need only keep track of the sessions you attend and place this information in your files. Your IWPC transcript makes this easy. For full rules for professional development hours in Illinois visit:

Will printed agendas be available at IWPC? 

No-IWPC made the move to WHOVA, a conference app, a few years ago as a environmentally and cost effective way to provide attendees with the most up to date information and add additional networking pathways. The cost of both the actual production of printed programs and the cost to prepare them to be printed was high both in terms of dollars but in volunteer hours as well.
