As of August 14, 2020, all digital education, which includes our traditional one and two hour webinars, new multi-day courses, GAAP update, and any other Education that is accessed online will have an attendee entry point in the new learning management system (LMS).
What this means for attendees going forward:
- Attendees will no longer receive an email with a link to access the program. They will receive email reminders from the LMS (currently set at 10, 5, 1 days out) that they are registered. The reminders will contain links that will take them directly to the course.
- Course material will be posted in the LMS only.
- CPE will be captured and verified by the system. Attendees can view the credits earned in their transcript and print their certificates (if they desire).
- All registrants will have access to an archive recording of their registered sessions within 24 hours of the recording. If an attendee missed a training when it aired live or want to watch again, they may do so on-demand at their own pace. Special note—CPE can only be earned from participating in the live event and not from an archive recording.

- You will receive a registration confirmation proceeded by four reminder e-mails from GFOA's learning management system (LMS).
- The e-mails are sent from firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com. Please whitelist these e-mail addresses and add them to your address book to ensure delivery.
- The reminder e-mails will be sent 10 days before the course date, 5 days before the course date, 1 day before the course date, and one-hour before the course starts.
- Each reminder e-mail contains a link to access the course directly as well as a link to add the course day and time to your calendar. We encourage you to use this feature.
- If you did not receive the e-mails, please check your Spam folder first.
- If the e-mails are not in Spam, please go to the LMS and use your credentials to log in to access the course.
- Do not use Internet Explorer when accessing GFOA's LMS. For the best viewing experience, read our Web Browser FAQs.
We strongly recommend that all members register for education seminars online if possible for faster processing. If registering online, you will have the option to pay now, or pay later. If paying later, you will be prompted for a P.O. and will be invoiced for your registration. If you are unable to register online, download the education registration form to e-mail to GFOA Education. If mailing the form, please allow three weeks for processing as mail service has been delayed. Click here to read about how to register multiple people for a course and substitutions.
