Clock hours are required for most teachers, administrators and ESE certificate holders in Washington State. Clock hours may be earned for salary placement and may also be required to maintain certification. ESD 112 is an approved clock hour provider in Washington State. If professional development is offered by an outside agency, it is important to check that the agency is approved by OSPI to provide clock hours in Washington. If not, the professional development hours may not be used for certificate maintenance or salary purposes. Certificates of completion are not valid forms of clock hour documentation. If your district is a member of the ESD 112 Clock Hour Coop, you may submit your clock hour in-service form from an outside provider to us and we will manually add the clock hours to your pdEnroller transcript. Outside providers do not use pdEnroller so they will not issue a claim code.

The clock hour process is entirely online. ESD 112 maintains all required clock hour records for seven years.
Clock Hour Transcripts
Clock hour official transcripts are available to print at no charge via your pdEnroller account located in the Clock Hours menu.
Clock hour proposals submitted to ESD 112 must be approved by our Clock hour Committee and must meet the guidelines set forth in the WACs to be considered. Click here for instructions for submitting a proposal.
If your district is a member of the clock hour co-op you do not need to pay the fee.

How to Claim Clock Hours
Classes sponsored by ESD 112 use a paperless clock hour process. When you complete a class/training, you will receive a code to claim clock hours via pdEnroller. During the process, you will submit the evaluation and pay or confirm clock hours. Once all steps have been completed, the clock hours are reported on a transcript. Go to Tutorial >

If the course is sponsored by an ESD, school district or college/university in Washington, chances are very good it is approved for clock hours. If taking classes from outside agencies, make sure they are either approved through the Professional Educator Standards Board to provide clock hours, or the training has been co-sponsored by an ESD in Washington. Washington does not accept CEUs, contact hours or certificates of completions for clock hour maintenance.
Yes, one quarter credit is equal to 10 clock hours, and one semester credit is equal to 15 clock hours.

You must manually enter these hours into your OSPI/EDS account.
Most teachers, administrators and educational staff associates are required to earn 100 clock hours every five years for certificate maintenance.

Visit the OSPI website for more details.
