These ideas for earning professional development units (PDUs) were submitted to the Association of Child Life Professionals by its members. ACLP is not responsible for, nor does it endorse the content or quality of, any non-ACLP courses. The Association does not pre-approve PDU sessions not offered by ACLP. It is up to each Certified Child Life Specialist® to determine if the offerings meet the requirements set forth by ACLP. When in doubt, individuals should contact the institutions listed above for further information.
