    CLE/CPD & Certification Credit

     

    Credits for Live Virtual and On-Demand Virtual Courses

    ****IMPORTANT NOTE: If you need CLE/CPD credit for your attendance, you must select the registration type "with CLE/CPD." It costs US$49 to add CLE/CPD to your registration. Please email us if you need assistance.****

    ACC will report on your behalf (Number of available credits: TBD) Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Maine, Nevada, North Carolina, North Dakota, Ohio, Oklahoma, Oregon, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia, Wyoming
    ACC will provide attendee a certificate for self-filing Alaska, Arizona, California, Connecticut, Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Wisconsin
    CLE/CPD credit not available Colorado, Florida, Hawaii, Kansas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, New Mexico, Vermont, Virginia
    No CLE/CPD credit requirement District of Columbia, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, South Dakota

    For questions specific to CLE/CPD, please email cle-cpd@acc.com.

    • Jurisdictions’ treatment of virtual courses varies – most grant credit for virtual courses, some require that it qualify under self-study rules/limits, and some treat live and on-demand virtual courses differently. We strongly encourage you to review your jurisdiction’s virtual/digital media course and self-study eligibility rules prior to selecting your Xchange sessions. ACC will post any relevant information to the CLE/CPD chart as we receive it.
    • ACC is applying for CLE/CPD credit for all sessions that are happening live (at the scheduled air dates/times), for the requested jurisdictions only, unless otherwise noted.
    • Where available, ACC will either apply for credit and submit attendance reports or supply a certificate for attendee use.
    • Previously recorded sessions from the conference (on-demand content) will be available for attendee viewing during and after the conference. While not pre-approved, the on-demand content may be eligible for CLE/CPD credit under your jurisdiction’s self-study guidelines. Please consult your jurisdiction’s specific rules before submitting for credit for any of on-demand recordings you view. 

     

    What do the numbers on the CLE/CPD chart mean?

    The total credits listed reflect the maximum number of credits an attendee can earn at the 2021 ACC Xchange, including the maximum ethics/specialty credits.

     

    How do I calculate my credits? 

    • Review the sessions you plan to attend, and compare them to the sessions approved on the chart. If your jurisdiction approved the session, you will earn credit once you attend the course. If the jurisdiction did not approve the session, you may still attend the course; however, your jurisdiction will not award you CLE/CPD credit for attending.
    • Pending session approval, in 60-minute states, every 60 minutes of instruction equals 1.0 credit. In 50-minute states, every 60 minutes of instruction equals 1.2 credits.
      • About a week following the end of the meeting, we will email all attendees with information about accessing their personal CLE/CPD Service Center, where they will be able to confirm the sessions they attended and then download their Certificate of Attendance.
      • I didn't receive that email about CLE/CPD.
        We ask attendees to first check their spam/junk mail folders. The email sender will be ACC Education. If you still can't find the email, please contact us and we will re-send you that information.

     

    How do I get my CLE/CPD certificate (Certificate of Attendance)?

    If you have registered and are requesting CLE/CPD credit:

     

    After the meeting, will I be able to get CLE/CPD credits for the sessions I watch on demand?

    It depends on your jurisdiction(s). Jurisdictions often require separate filing and reporting for online sessions. If you have registered, are requesting CLE/CPD credit, and need assistance, please email cle-cpd@acc.com and we will facilitate this the best we can.

     

    More questions about CLE/CPD at the 2021 ACC Xchange?

    Contact cle-cpd@acc.com or +1 202.293.4103 ext. 820. Please allow 2 business days for replies.

     

    General

     

    How do I select sessions?

    We will open the virtual event platform on or about June 1, 2021, and email you your access information at that time, so that you can enter the platform, select your sessions, and add (export) them to your personal Outlook or Google calendar.

    Didn't receive your access information? Please first check your spam/junk mail folder, as sometimes our system emails get caught there. If you still don't see it, please contact us.
