(IMPORTANT!) Elimination of the use of Social Security Numbers to report and retrieve Act 48 continuing education credits and hours

In June of 2006, the Pennsylvania Department of Education (PDE) instituted the use of a 7-digit individual Professional Personnel Identification Number (PPID) to be used as a secure unique identifier for all certified educators.  The intended purpose of the PPID was to create a secure alternative to the use of Social Security Numbers for reporting and retrieving Act 48 continuing professional education credits and hours.

Professional Personal ID (PPID) Number

The Pennsylvania Department of Education will no longer accept Social Security numbers in order to record and track all Act 48 hours. As a result, the Department has issued each person within the state with a Professional Personal ID (PPID) number. This identification will be utilized in order to track your own Act 48 hours on the PDE website. In addition, this number will be utilized by all Act 48 Providers for registration and tracking purposes.

If you have not yet received your PPID, please click on the following link: https://www.perms.ed.state.pa.us/wfLogin.aspx?T=1
