CPE 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. 

In-person Participation (Washington, D.C.) 

During each session, volunteers will remain at the entrances and exits to scan attendees either in OR out to verify attendance.

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.

Virtual Participant (from Your Home/Office)

During virtual sessions, you will be required to click on a series of alertness checks that appear at random times. When these alertness check boxes appear, you will have a short period of time to click on the “Continue Viewing” button. To receive CPE credit, you must pass a number of alertness checks, see below.  

1 CPE credit = passing 3 alertness checks 
1.5 CPE credit = passing 5 alertness checks
2 CPE credit = passing 6 alertness checks

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

CPE for Speaker’s Preparation Time:

Speakers, instructors and discussion leaders may be eligible for CPE credit for their preparation and presentation time to the extent the activities maintain or improve their professional competence, and meet the requirements of applicable CPE standards/policies.  Speakers are responsible for tracking/documenting their own preparation time. AGA is not able to add preparation time to the speaker’s CPE certificate.

In accordance with NASBA standards, speakers who present a learning activity for the first time may receive CPE credit for actual preparation time, up to two times the number of CPE credits to which participants would be entitled, in addition to the time for presentation, subject to regulations and maximums established by the boards of accountancy. CGFM CPE policies have a similar provision for speakers, as long as the CPEs are applicable towards CGFM and are within the 40-hour maximum number of CPE hours granted to an individual as a speaker or course developer for any two-year period. For more information/guidance, please refer to CGFM CPE policiesNASBA standards or another applicable entity.
