Once these requirements have been met, you will be able to download the CPE certificate in the session via the CPE Certification widget. You will also receive an email with a link to the CPE certificate.

Unfortunately, we're unable to grant CPE credit in cases where technical difficulties disqualify eligibility due to the CPE Program Sponsorship guidelines.
