The requirements include active participation during this live session and completion of the online Feedback Survey within one week of the session. We STRONGLY encourage you to complete the survey as soon as you leave the session while things are fresh in your mind. We value your feedback!

  • requests for duplicate or replacement certificates once we send them out for a session

OK2Ask® is a free service from a non-profit, the Source for Learning, Inc. Our small staff and limited budget require us to streamline administrative tasks as much as possible in order to maintain OK2Ask as a free service. We use our resources to develop and share the highest possible quality professional development, while keeping administrative costs as low as we can.

Just as you, as a teacher, feel strongly about verifying that your students have completed objectives, we feel very strongly about issuing certificates only to those who meet OK2Ask session objectives. This verification process requires significant time. Relaunching the survey and/or reopening the process to re-verify and reissue a certificate is simply not possible, given limited resources.
