Application Review Process

The required documents for the application include:

Program List

If all program offerings have not yet been determined, submit the known course offerings and remit fees based on that program offering level.  If, during the year, your organization will exceed the number of program offerings included in the initial application, please contact your National Registry account administrator.

Content Review

One program for each instructional delivery method for which you are applying is reviewed for content and technical accuracy. 

The classroom or conference instructor/presenter is a vital part of the content delivery; thus the extent of content review for Group Live is limited.  The course agenda, slides, and instructor notes (as available) will be reviewed for content appropriate for CPE credit, as well as the element of engagement as stated in the Standards.

Request for Modifications

If there are areas of non-compliance, your National Registry account administrator will send you an email requesting modifications.  Please look at each element on the modification request.  If you have any questions, please contact your account administrator.  You will have two weeks from the date of the email to submit the modified documentation and materials.  You have two opportunities to make required modifications.  After two opportunities to make modifications and the documents remain noncompliant, the application will be closed.

Application Approved

Once your initial application is approved, you will be provided with a National Registry of CPE Sponsors ID number and approval letter.
