Frequently Asked Questions

Can I retake a course in the future and earn credits from it again?

  • No. Credits can only be earned from a course one time.

The course I completed does not qualify for CPE credits. How do I get credit for it?

  • Every January, CFI submits our courses to NASBA for evaluation. This course may qualify for CPE credits in the future. However, please note that you can only receive CPE credits for a course if you receive the certificate within 60 days of completion.
  • You can retake the course once it qualifies for CPE credits. Once you've completed the course, please contact us by clicking the 'Help' button from the bottom right corner of this page to retrieve your CPE certificate.
