CPE Tracking Process

During the course of this virtual training event, you will be required to click on a series of pop-up boxes that will appear at random times. When these boxes pop up, you will have a brief 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. Doing so may cause you to be ineligible to earn the CPE credit.
