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 Participant (Denver, CO)

AGA scans name badges at varying times and will use this information to tally your education session attendance and create your CPE certificate. For each individual session, you must attend the entire session to receive credit. Participants who arrive more than 10 minutes late for a session or depart early may not receive credit.

Virtual Participation (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. Doing so may cause you to be 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.
