CHR MARK green (2)

Take Continuing Education with confidence!

The “CE Hours Reported” mark was created in an effort to help CAPCA members register for education with confidence that their completed CE hours will be reported and appear on their official print out in a timely manner. Your hours and timely renewal are important to CAPCA, you will start to see this mark appear for meetings whose sponsors have committed to report your attendance within 7 business days of the meeting/online CE completion. We hope this allows you to register with assurance that your Official Cert will include all your CE hours when you are ready to renew.
