Once you have loaded the LMS web page:

  • On the right side of the screen, click on “Log In,” enter your GFOA membership username and password into the login box, and then click “Sign In.” These are the same credentials that you use for any GFOA activity (online registration, exclusive webpage content, etc.)
  • If you do not know your credentials, you can use the Forgot Username and/or Forgot password links and follow those steps to obtain that information. Your e-mail address must match the registration record on your account for this class.

Once you are logged in to the system, your dashboard will display your registered upcoming live events. Click on the course you are registered to attend.

On the landing page:

  1. Click the arrow to expand the listing.
  2. Enter the session by clicking on the event box. (This will activate the Zoom meeting and authenticate you as a registered user.)
  3. You may download the course slides through the link under the session content.
  4. Once you complete each live session, you will be awarded your earned credits for the program.
  5. For multiple-day courses, after you have logged into the system, repeat steps 1-4 for each of the day of the course.
  6. At the conclusion of the event, click on the "Access your certificate/credit" tab and complete the course evaluation. This will unlock the Final CPE certificate component. Your earned CPE credits will be part

If the training is recorded, you will have access to the recording for one year after the course finishes for all non-accounting courses. Accounting course recordings will remain available for 90 days after the course finishes.
