CE Hours Reported

The “CE Hours Reported” mark was created to help CAPCA members register for education with confidence that their completed CE hours will be reported and appear on their official printout promptly. Your hours and timely renewal are important to CAPCA; you will start to see this mark appear for meetings where the sponsors have committed to report your attendance within seven business days of the meeting/online CE completion. We hope this allows you to register with the assurance that your Official Certificate will include all your CE hours when you are ready to renew.

Do you host DPR CE Meetings?

As a sponsor of Continuing Education meetings, your company can also take advantage of this promotional tool to assist you in marketing your educational events. Promotion of the meeting includes a basic listing in the Adviser magazine and under the CE Hours Reported Page.

(The listing is informational to our members, not ‘ad space’ for the meeting sponsor.)

CAPCA is offering this trademark at no cost* to CE sponsors dedicated to advancing the professionalism and educational training of all DPR license holders.

*The trademark use agreement is required. After signing, you may use the CE Hours Reported trademark to market the courses. Please note the use of the mark and listing of the courses means as a sponsor, you’ll report the completed hours to CECPM within 7 business days.
