TRO Webinar Series - COMING SEPT. 8, 2021:
TRO webinars are moving to a new platform!
We’ve got some exciting changes ahead! This fall, we will move all TRO webinars to a brand new platform that will make the process of viewing webinars and receiving PCC transcript points easier for your use. Stay tuned to this page and our e-TRO newsletter for updates!
If you have already purchased PCC transcripts for any webinar series and have not yet completed watching the series, contact Stacey Sestric at email@example.com. If you have completed a series, your PCC transcript will be mailed in the next 4 – 6 weeks.
What will change on the new webinar platform?
Many things are staying the same. Previously recorded webinars are still available. You will also still have the option to watch the webinar recordings for free or to earn PCC points and purchase a transcript.
What will be different? There are two main differences:
1. Free webinars are available in one stream. PCC-eligible webinars are in another stream. If you purchase the PCC transcript stream, you must watch all the videos in a series (i.e. watch all 5 of the videos) and enter the start and stop codes after each video. Once you have completed an entire series, you will be able to download your transcript. This means that you will no longer need to wait 4 – 6 weeks for your transcript to arrive in the mail!
2. To watch the live webinars, you must purchase the PCC transcript stream. Live streaming will not be available in the free stream. Videos of the webinar will be posted within 24 hours of the live session.
Didn’t get to one of our past conferences? Missed a session or want to see it again? Looking to earn more PCCs? To support our members in their professional development, TRO has recorded several conference sessions. Sessions are now available for purchase from the 2019 TRO Conference, as well as past recordings from the 2016, 2017, and 2018 TRO Conferences. Thank you to all of the presenters and delegates from these sessions for your cooperation!

PCC Application to Become a TRO Sponsored Event
If you are organizing an educational opportunity, Therapeutic Recreation Ontario is now offering PCC points for members who attend educational opportunities made available by/to regional groups or facilities. Attendees will be awarded 1 PCC point for every 1 hour of education sessions they attend. Only attendees who purchase PCC points will be able to submit the education session along with PCC transcript for points in their Registration (R/TRO, R/TRO DIP) application / maintenance packages. The organizing individual/group must download and complete the PCC application form and send along with an abstract/brochure (click link above to learn more).
TRO Sponsored Events
Collecting Professional Contribution Credits (PCCs) for your Registration (R/TRO, R/TRO DIP) Application or Maintenance package? Any session listed as a "TRO Sponsored Event" on this or other pages on our website has been pre-approved for PCCs. Please note: in order to receive your PCC Transcript, you will need to purchase PCCs for the event you are attending and follow the PCC procedures as outlined for the event.
TRO members have indicated that they want more TRO sponsored educational opportunities in addition to our Annual TRO Conference. One of the ways TRO is addressing this request is by sharing details for PCC-approved opportunities.
