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:

Group Internet Based Events

To receive CPE credit, participants must register for the course prior to the start of each program and login no later than the scheduled start time for the course. Participants must remain logged in to the course for minimum time requirement and answer enough poll questions to mark attendance. The requirements for polls and attendance time vary depending on the length of the course. The time and poll requirements are as follows:

  • 1 Credit (50 minute webinar): 3 polls answered and 50 minutes attendance
  • 1.2 Credits (75 minute webinar): 4 polls answered and 75 minutes attendance

Group Live Events

  • 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.

For all CPE programs, certificates of completion will only be issued upon verification of attendance and completion of any required element of engagement. Not all programs qualify for CPE. Please see the individual course page for details.
