How to Complete a Continuing Education Course

Instructions for Obtaining Your Certificate

In order to obtain the CPE certificate, you must view/read the entire program, complete the test with an 80% passing grade, and complete the evaluation. 

Re-take the test as many times as needed (after you submit your answers, the screen will show correct answers in green and incorrect answers in red text). For webinars, the test simply asks you to certify that you completed the course – complete the evaluation to access and print your certificate.

How to Access Your Tests*

To access your tests, log in to your Account. Click on Member Area, then click on the Tests/Certificates button on the left side bar. 

Under Tests/Certificates, you will see the tests for all products you’ve purchased or been sent. To begin a Test, click the “Start” button.

If you are interrupted and cannot finish the test, you can save the test and come back to your Tests page at any point in time to finish it.

*Free Webinars and Partner Organizations – Please see instructions below.

Note: If you are part of a group that purchased additional certificates for a webinar or course, the person who purchased can send the Test to your Member Area from his or her Tests/Certificates page. All participants must create an account on to access Tests/Certificates.

How to Complete Your Evaluation

Upon successfully completing the test, you will automatically be directed to the evaluation. Simply complete the online evaluation form. When finished, click “Submit.” 

How to Obtain Your Certificate
