Frequently Asked Questions:
I received a blank page after submitting the test and evaluation
Occasionally the program will time-out during periods of inactivity. When this happens you will receive a blank page after submitting the exam and evaluation. The problem is easy to correct. You will need to close down the current test page entirely and open a new test page. You will need to resubmit the test and evaluation. The following page after the evaluation page will be the payment page. Once the payment has been received the results and certificate of completion will be issued immediately.
How do I access the continuing education reading material?
On the home page you will see a link on the left side of the page (Course Catalog). Click there to begin. When you find a course that you would like to view, run your mouse over the course title and click on it. There you will find each course in its entirety. When you have read the course material and would like to take the exam, you will find links to the exam page on the top and bottom of the course material.

How do I take an online test?
On the course catalog page and on the course material page, you will find links to the test material. The link found within the course material allows the exam to open in a new browser window. Once you have submitted the test an evaluation page will appear. After filling in the evaluation you will be asked to submit the payment. The following screen will include the results and certificate of completion.
Is my CEU test being timed?
You can take as much time as needed to complete the exam, however, if the test page remains open for more than 45 minutes the page may time out. After about 45 minutes of inactivity on the test page the server interprets this to mean the test taker has left the site. If you continue on you may receive a blank page after submitting the test and evaluation pages instead of receiving the payment page.. The way to fix this is to close down the current test page and open a new one.
How do I pay for the CEU course?
