CPE credit will be awarded for the live-sessions (e-Learning courses, webinars, and networking events with CPE) you participate in through the LMS platform. Please note that CPE credits are not awarded for viewing archived recordings. Once you have accessed a learning event on the LMS, the "Contents" menu tab will provide you with all of the components for that event, including the amount of CPE awarded upon completion of the event and filling out the "Course Evaluation." Upon completing the evaluation, you will be awarded the designated CPE for the learning event.
For all learning events on the LMS, participants must complete the "Course Evaluation" to receive CPE credits. After completing the course, you have up to 30 days to submit the course evaluation to receive your credits.
Tracking & Printing CPE Credits
Keep track of your credits as you go along by checking the "My Learning Dashboard." On this page, select "Transcripts/Achievements" for a listing of all of the CPEs you have attained on the LMS. You have an option of printing a certificate for each learning event that you attained CPE for or downloading a PDF of your transcript that lists all of your CPE credits.
Adding CPE Credits Acquired Outside of GFOA
As a service to our members, you can keep track of all of your CPEs, even those attained outside of GFOA, in one location. You can do this also on the "My Learning Dashboard." On this page, please select the "Transcripts/Achievements" option, which will take you to a page titled by the same name. On this page, please select "Add External Credits/Experience." A pop-up window will appear, which will allow you to enter the title of the course, date earned, choose if you want the added courses included in your downloaded transcript, and upload your proof of completion into the system.
GFOA is registered with the National Association of State Boards of Accountancy (NASBA) as a sponsor of continuing professional education on the National Registry of CPE Sponsors.
State boards of accountancy have final authority on the acceptance of individual courses for CPE credit.
