How much are Professional Development Events and what does the fee include?
Virtual PD event costs are determined by the duration of the event.
Registration includes access to the live, virtual event, a post-event recording of the content for an author-determined period of time unless otherwise noted, and other course materials as specified within the event description. You will also receive a certificate of attendance upon completion of the event.
How do I register and pay for an event*?
If registering yourself, someone else, or a large group with a credit card the quickest and easiest way to do so is via our online system. Simply choose an event and click the ‘register now’ button. Follow the prompts to complete your registration. If registering a group, choose the ‘add group member’ button and begin adding additional registrant information until your group is complete. Please doublecheck your registration information on the summary page before proceeding to the checkout. Groups registered in this manner need to be billed to one credit card only. A registration confirmation will automatically be sent to you via email when you have completed the payment process. We currently accept Mastercard, Visa and American Express.
If you are registering with a PO, please email email@example.com with your first and last name, title, unique email address, and an attached copy of your purchase order. If registering a group include that same information for each attendee. Please be certain to include PO and registrant information in the same correspondence. A registration confirmation will be sent to you via email.
What is the cut-off date to register?
We accept registrations up until the day of an event unless the event, is filled to maximum capacity. We cannot predict when or if an event will fill, therefore we suggest you register as soon as possible.
Which authors, topic experts or consultants deliver events?

Where is the event being held?
Virtual events will be held in a secure, online platform.

Substitutions are welcome any time prior to the start of the event. You must email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and the name and unique email address of the substitute. For all cancellations, please email us a minimum of 24 hours prior to the event at email@example.com. If you do not send the cancellation in writing at least 24 hours in advance or send a substitute no refund will be given.
Can I get credit for attending a Heinemann Workshop or Multi-Day Event?
Heinemann offers general CEU/Clock hour credit. In addition, most in-person courses have a graduate credit option for an additional fee and typically require some additional work. The credit information can be found on the event description page.
For details on our university partner and how to register for and earn credit, please visit UMass Global.
- We strongly recommend checking with your school district to ensure that the credit from your chosen university will be accepted before you enroll. Students intending to transfer credit to another university are also advised to obtain approval from their advisor or the registrar before enrolling.
- Not all graduate credit options are able to be transferred to degree programs.
- Heinemann's virtual professional learning options are not currently eligible for state-specific PD requirements and may not meet your state's requirements for certification. We recommend you check with your state/district before purchasing if you are unsure if general PD hours will be accepted. Please see the workshop description for specifics.
- Enrolling for graduate credit ALWAYS requires a registration directly through the university.
- Fees for graduate credit must be paid separately to the university and must not be included with your registration fee to Heinemann Workshops.
What happens after I sign up?
A confirmation will be sent to each individual registrant – we require a unique email address for each attendee registering – once the registration has been processed. If you do not receive your confirmation within 48 hours, please contact at firstname.lastname@example.org. For in-person events, the confirmation letter will also include location information.
What if I need special accommodations?
We are happy to help you with whatever you need. For special accommodation requests, please email us at email@example.com.
Heinemann will record all virtual events. This recording is housed in the secure platform used to host the event and will only be shared with you and your fellow attendees for an author determined period of time. Your recorded image and audio will not be used in any other way.
