How does it work? How do I earn CE?

You can select from a variety of video and audio courses to watch or listen to, and most are broken into smaller chapters. In order to obtain CE credit, quiz questions will be presented after each chapter to test your knowledge of the content that was presented. Members must correctly answer 80% of all quiz questions and complete the course in order to earn the CE. You are allowed a maximum of two attempts to pass the quiz.

What if I fail a course?

An 80% score is required to pass the course and earn credits, and you are allowed a maximum of two attempts to pass. In the event that you do not receive a passing score on the 2nd attempt, the course will no longer be eligible for credits but the course content will remain accessible.
