2. Sign in and out of the training on our Continuing and Professional Education Roster to verify 100% attendance at the program.

3. Complete a course evaluation.

4. Prior:  Of course, you’ll want to contact your State licensing board or certification institution to verify that our Preferred Provider certification units are applicable to your State Board requirements. For example: If you’re an accountant, make sure your State licensing board accepts NASBA CEUs.
