CE Tracking

As a benefit to IDA members, continuing education credits earned at the IDA’s annual conference or virtually through IDA will be added to the online tracking system and may be accessed at any time through the ADA website, and you may also self-report other continuing education taken. You may also log into ADA.org and click on My ADA, and then My CE Transcripts. This is a convenient way to maintain your continuing education transcripts as you go and have available to you whenever you need it.
