PCRID serves you by bringing professional development opportunities all around Maryland and DC. We host several FREE workshops every year, and PCRID Members get FREE CEU Processing! Keep an eye out on our calendar for workshops coming to an area near you!
Is there a specific workshop you would like PCRID to bring to the DC area? Are you interested in presenting a workshop? Contact the Director of Professional Development, Samantha Schein at email@example.com.
The professional development committee is a standing committee of members who seek out, arrange and host workshops for the benefit of PCRID members. Any member can join and/or suggest workshop ideas, presenters and locations. Members of the PDC attend workshops at discounted rates and play an important role in deciding which workshops will be offered to the membership. If you are interested in joining us please contact the Professional Development Director.
The Certification Maintenance Program of RID was established to ensure our certifications retain value and guarantee quality with members who stay current on the latest theories, strategies, and techniques.
