Attendance Monitoring Process

To ensure compliance with NASBA standards for the reporting and record retention of CPE credits, XBRL US adheres to the following attendance monitoring guidelines:

  • Sign in/sign out sheets are required for all programs where CPE credit is offered.
  • Participants must sign in upon arrival and indicate their time of arrival.
  • Participants must sign out and indicate the time of their departure:
  • When they expect not to return even though the program has not formally concluded
  • When they will be absent from the program for a significant period of time
  • Upon conclusion of each break-out session, if applicable
  • Upon conclusion of the program

Sign in/sign out procedures do not need to be followed during scheduled breaks or meal periods.

Every program will be monitored by at least one XBRL US staff member (program administer) who will greet each participant as they arrive and ensure that sign in/sign out procedures are adhered to. In addition to sign in/sign out procedures, attendance monitoring may also include a number count throughout the day by the XBRL US program administer or program facilitator, where appropriate.

Certificates of completion will only be issued upon verification of attendance using sign in/sign out sheets and personal observation.
