CONTINUING PROFESSIONAL EDUCATION (CPE)

During a Live Webinar, you will be asked to answer polling questions to verify your attendance throughout the session. By answering all polling questions, you become eligible for CPE credit. Approximately 1 – 2 business days after the completion of the course, you will receive an email containing a link to download your CPE certificate.
Our Self-Study sessions will include an end-of-course exam. In order to receive CPE credit for these courses, you must pass this exam with a score greater than or equal to 70% in no more than 3 attempts. If you do not pass the exam with a score of 70% or greater after your third attempt, you must retake the entire course. If you do pass the exam, you will receive an email containing a link to download your CPE certificate.
If you qualify to receive CPE credit but do not receive an email with your certificate, please contact Customer Service.
