Live Webinar CPE Instructions

To qualify for CPE, here are the steps you need to take before, during, and after the webinar.

  • Purchase and pay for the webinar course. If you are an Enrolled Agent, enter your PTIN starting with a capital P followed by numbers.
  • Join the webinar at the correct time using the unique link you’ve been emailed. This link should be in the name that you want on your CPE certificate.
  • Keep the GoToWebinar browser tab open during the webinar.
  • Stay logged into the webinar for the required number of minutes. 50 = 1 hour, 105 = 2 hours, 160 = 3 hours. (You can log out and log back in if you have tech trouble; your total number of minutes will be counted.)
  • Write down the attendance words we call out at random times during the webinar. You’ll need to write them in order, so it’s a good idea to write the number we list as well as the word. The word must be spelled correctly.  We cannot give you these words after they have been announced. There will be 4 for 1 hour, 8 for 2 hours, and 12 for 3 hours.
  • After the webinar is over, wait 2-3 hours. During this time, we’re updating our database with the participants who met the time attendance requirement.
  • 2-3 hours after the webinar is over, visit and have your attendance words handy.
    • Enter the email address you used to login to the webinar in the field on this page and click Submit.
    • Locate the correct course in the table that displays, and click the “Enter Attendance Checks” button next to the correct course.
    • Enter the attendance check words in the blanks provided. If you missed one, leave it blank. Click Submit.
    • Your certificate should display if you’ve entered the correct number of words (at least 3 for 1 hour, at least 6 for 2 hours, and at least 9 for 3 hours.

If you encounter an error, we may be able to fix it.  What we can’t fix: participant does not have enough minutes attended, participant does not have the attendance check words.  What we can fix: name change, any error on our part. Email if you need help.
