What's New

Integrating pdEnroller and EDS

Beginning January 2021, clock hours that are earned through pdEnroller will automatically be uploaded into OSPI’s E-Certification system.  These will only be applied to clock hours that were earned starting on July 1, 2015, and for educators who have both an EDS and pdEnroller account.   For more information, or to confirm that your EDS and pdEnroller account are linked, please click here:

Please also take this time to update your pdEnroller user account.  If you have more than one account in pdEnroller please contact Heather Archut at and request an account merge.  Please provide the email address for both (or all if more than 2) accounts and let us know which email address/account you would like to have as your primary log in.

How to Request Clock Hours for Your Training

A clock hour proposal must be submitted to OESD via the pdEnroller Clock Hour Proposal System, and OESD must approve it PRIOR to the beginning of any training per the Washington Administrative Code (WAC 181-85-205).

Clock Hour Proposals are submitted online via pdEnroller

Clock hours are used to:

  • Renew Continuing, Residency, and Professional certificates (100 clock hours or 10 credits from a regionally accredited college or institution are required each renewal cycle)
  • Salary enhancement (move up on the pay scale). Ten clock hours is equivalent to 1 quarter credit

How to register hours

Current clock hours (after January 2017) may be registered online via pdEnroller.

If clock hours were requested and approved by OESD 114 for a training after January 2017, there is no clock hour form provided. After the training, once the attendance has been entered into pdEnroller, participants will receive a confirmation email. At this time, participants can log into pdEnroller to complete the workshop evaluation/survey and pay for earned clock hours online. Log in, click on the Clock Hours dropdown, and select My Clock Hours from the menu. Pending classes will be listed in the queue with "Next Actions" to the right of each title. Once payment is made and the survey is complete, the class is automatically recorded to an individual's transcript. A confirmation page may be printed, but does not need to be sent to OESD 114. This is for your records.

Requests for older clock hours sponsored by OESD 114 (prior to January 2017):

If clock hours were requested and approved by OESD 114 for a training, Request for Clock Hours forms were provided on the last day of the training. Note: Minimum attendance of three hours is required in order to be eligible for clock hours. (Effective September 1, 2019 a minimum of one (1) clock hour earned on or after this date will be accepted).

The Request for Clock Hours form must be completed and mailed to us with payment. The cost is now $3.00 per clock hour. Older forms do not reflect his increased rate, but the $3/hour rate does apply on ALL clock hour requests (old or new). For each form submitted more than 90 days after the training, a $10.00 research fee is also required. Clock hours are not considered earned until paid for and authorized by OESD 114. Once authorized by OESD 114 and the clock hours have been entered into pdEnroller, the request form will be returned to the individual with the verification portion completed showing the individual earned the clock hours.

Send all forms with appropriate payment to:

Olympic ESD 114
Attn: Clock Hour Payments
105 National Ave N.
Bremerton, WA 98312.

Clock hours provided by another Washington State approved clock hour provider:

On occasion an individual will attend a training which has the clock hours provided by another approving agency, such as OSPI or another ESD. In those cases, payment for the clock hours, if required, goes to the approving agency.

If the clock hours will be used for salary enhancement, after the form is signed by the approving agency or designee it then must be sent to OESD 114 to be put on the individual’s transcript. Our fee for transcribing those clock hours to the transcript is $3.00, regardless of the number of clock hours or date of the inservice. Note: forms from other providers must be signed by the provider before being sent to OESD 114. We cannot accept them without the provider signature.

When the clock hours have been entered into our database, the form will be returned to the individual.

Lost Request for Clock Hours Forms

If you have lost a request form, or neglected to pick one up at a class, you should complete a Research Request Form. Fill in as much information about the class as possible (we approve clock hours for over 1200 in services each year, so finding the correct class can be tedious) and mail it to us with a check for $10.00. We will do everything possible to find the right class and send you a Request for Clock Hours form for the class.

Frequently Asked Questions

Clock Hour Transcripts

OESD 114 provides transcripts to the school district Human Resource offices twice a year if part of our clock hour consortium,, normally in Spring and Fall. We provide transcripts only for those individuals who have registered clock hours since the previous transcript run.

Individual teachers may request a clock hour transcript at any time. The cost is $5.00 per transcript. Please complete a Clock Hour Transcript Request Form and mail it along with a check.

Please Note: We maintain two separate databases for clock hour transcripts. The older system became too cumbersome and costly, so we began using a new system in August 2005. At that time, we gave the school districts a transcript for everyone in the system. We no longer provide them to the districts except on special request. We do provide a transcript from the older system to individual teachers the first time they request a transcript. The older system may no longer be available in the future.
