Please note: Paid participants CPE certificates will not be available to download until full payment is received, if applicable.

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. 

  1. During the webinar, letters will appear at unannounced times in the top left-hand corner of the PowerPoint slide. Note: This is not a pop-up box. Please write these letters down when you see them. 
  2. At the end of the training, close your browser session to enable the survey and enter the letters in the survey field.
  3. Participants who successfully complete this process will receive an email within five (5) business days with instructions on how to download their CPE certificate.

NOTE: You must be able to view the PowerPoint slides on a device to see the CPE letters. All those dialing in using phone line only cannot see the slides for CPEs. Thus, will NOT be able to receive CPEs.

Announcing the letters to fellow attendees in the chat box is against NASBA policy and you may be ineligible to earn the CPE credits for the webinar.
