2024 IN-PERSON PDS Key Points:

  • To continue your active status as an SBDI, you MUST attend a PDS every year. (Ex: If you become certified as an SBDI before March 31, 2024, you must attend the 2024 PDS.)
  • NO SUSPENSIONS will be granted.
  • If you do not complete the 2024 PDS, and do not have a verified catastrophic event in your life for Hardship approval, you will have to recertify as an SBDI if you want to continue performing the duties of an SBDI.

2024 Pre-Session Assignment


You are only allowed to sign up for ONE PDS Class.  If you register for more than ONE PDS class, we will randomly remove you from duplicate(s).
