CPE Link’s live webcasts serve a national audience. We see all types of attendees—from sole practitioners to firms with groups of 3 to 10 participating in our programs. In serving these larger groups we have discovered that firms have special needs when it comes to CPE. We have taken their suggestions and requests for functionalities on our website and built a special place just for firms. It’s called the Firm CPE Center.

Using the Firm CPE Center, you can manage online CPE for your professional staff. Your administrator can register individuals or groups to live webcasts or self study courses or allow everyone to register themselves. The Firm CPE Center offers a dashboard for CPE activity tracking, e-mailed confirmations and reminders plus online evaluations and certificates of completion.

You can also control your CPE budget with bulk purchases of CPE with our new Firm Advantage Pass. Choose live webcast hours, self-study, or both. (100 hours minimum). Your Advantage Pass hours may be used by anyone in the firm. Staff can register at the last minute and cancel easily if needed. And your hours never expire!

I invite you to create your firm profile and check out the Firm CPE Center. Let us know what you think!
