PDP Policy

MEFA is certified by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) as a registered provider of Professional Development Points (PDP). All college planning webinars are aligned with MASCA's MA Model and the Massachusetts Career Development Education (CDE) Benchmarks. 

PDP Requirements

Massachusetts DESE requirements state that PDPs may be issued only after a minimum of 10 hours of professional development, supported by Evidence of Learning Forms. After completing a MEFA Institute lesson or a MEFA training, complete the MEFA Institute Evidence of Learning Form here. Fill in and submit the form after every lesson or training you complete. Once you have completed 10 hours of lessons/trainings, you will have earned 10 PDPs.

Requesting PDPs

Once you have accumulated a minimum of 10 hours of professional development from MEFA, we will email you a PDP Certificate of Completion.  If you have any questions at any time during this process, please contact the K12 Services Team at

Note: MEFA is not certified to provide Continuing Education Units (CEU).
