Common NASCC Live Questions:

nascc live - VIEWING THE STREAM & PdhS

I missed a NASCC Live streaming session, how can I view it?

NASCC sessions, including NASCC Live sessions, will be available approximately 45 days after the conference. Approximately 45 days after the conference, we post slideshows (complete with audio presentations) of most of the sessions to our education archives at Proceedings for the SSRC Conference will be also be available in the archives.

PDH credit can only be claimed for sessions watched during the live stream. You will not receive PDH credit for viewing the sessions in the archives.

If I didn't get to watch the whole webcast, are there any challenges to claiming PDH credits? If so, what?

When you claiming a PDH code from a session you are stating that you watched the session in its entirety and therefore earned the professional development hours. PDH codes that are announced and the beginning and end of the session should only be used of you watched the entire session. While we cannot regulate if you watched the session in its entirety when you claim the credit, we hope you will honor the system. There are no barriers as long as you are registered and have the PDH code.

How do I receive PDH Credit for NASCC Live sessions?

During each NASCC Live session the speaker will announce a PDH Code, be sure to write each code down! Then:

1. Once you watch the session go to the PDH portal at

2. Login to the PDH portal with the last name and email address used to register for NASCC Live (or your badge number)
