How to Watch Professional Development Sessions & Claim CPE Credit from the 2020 ATPE Summit

ATPE members convened virtually July 6–10 for the 2020 ATPE Summit, with more than 2,300 members registering for the event. Attendees had the opportunity to earn up to 10 hours of continuing professional education (CPE) credit by attending various professional development sessions. 

Did you miss a session or two that you really wanted to see but your schedule didn’t allow? Don’t fret! Professional development sessions (except for the House of Delegates and Closing Session with Gerry Brooks) are available for on demand viewing through October 9, 2020. Log in to to start watching today. If you misplaced your login credentials for the summit streaming platform, email us at Remember that the secret code to claim CPE credit will be shared at the end of each session. 

If you have not already done so, please remember to claim your CPE credit from the sessions you attended. We’ve put together detailed instructions for claiming your CPE credit on our Professional Learning Portal:
