Learning objective:  At the end of the training, participants will be able to:

Tracking process

AGA adheres to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) standards for CPE programs, which require an attendance verification process for all training events. 

For in-person attendees, your name badge is imprinted with a unique barcode. Name badges will be scanned at random times for each session as you enter or exit. AGA will use the process to tally your attendance and create your CPE certificate. CPE certificates will be available online to print within two weeks after the training. Only registrants who are paid in full will be eligible for CPE hours.

During the virtual sessions, you will be required to click on a series of pop-up boxes that appear at random times. When these pop-up boxes appear you will have a short period of time to click on the “Continue Viewing” button. If you fail to click on these pop-ups, you will be ineligible to claim CPE credits for that session.

Announcing the pop-up alertness checks to fellow attendees in the chat box during a session is against NASBA policy and you may be ineligible to earn the CPE credit.

Participants will be able to choose between three to four breakout sessions. Participants will have up to five minutes from the start of each sessions to switch to another session. After this time, participants will risk the chance of missing the alertness checks to qualify for CPE for the session. 

Session Recordings

Recordings for all sessions will be available at least two business weeks post training for all attendees to access. Please note: Recordings do not offer CPE credits. You must participate in the live streaming or in person to receive credits. Please refer to tracking process above for instructions.

CPE Retrieval

CPE certificates will be available to print online within two weeks after the training, at which time all attendees will receive an email stating that the CPE certificate is ready to download.
