Important: Your “accumulated viewing time” must occur during the live webcast. Please consider the time that it may take you to log into the webcast. Time prior to the start of the webcast (i.e., while the countdown clock is running) or after the end of the webcast (e.g., while completing the feedback form) does not qualify.
CPE accredited webcasts utilize pop-up polling to track participation. The polls are question and response options that appear during the webcast. Pop-up blockers must be disabled for the polls to function properly. Please read the eligibility requirements above for the number of poll questions to which you must respond to qualify for CPE credit.
Yes - if you still meet the minimum accumulated viewing time, poll and feedback requirements listed above. As a member of the National Registry of CPE Sponsors, webcasts must adhere to the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy’s (NASBA) guidelines. We use online participation time and poll responses to prove that each participant has actively participated for the duration of a webcast.
Due to these strict regulatory guidelines, we are unable to grant CPE credit when technical or logistical difficulties effect eligibility. You may not receive CPE credit if you did not meet the eligibility requirements listed above even if technical issues contributed to ineligibility. If you encounter technical difficulties during a live webcast, please connect to the production team through the webcast chat function for assistance.
Polls must be responded to using the poll pop-up inside of the webcast page. Responses submitted using the “Chat“ button on the screen or via email do not qualify.

To be eligible for CPE credit when listening to a webcast via conference call, you must be logged into the live webcast online. This allows you to view slides and respond to poll questions online. You must still meet the minimum online participation time, poll and feedback requirements listed above. Due to NASBA participation requirements, we are unable to issue CPE for those who are only listening via conference call.
