You may take as many courses as you wish, but you may only take each course once during a year subscription cycle.
Are all of your courses available in the Unlimited Access catalog?
No, due to certain copyright agreements, we can only offer some of our text courses. We do offer ALL of our video/audio courses and our Unlimited Access catalog is constantly expanding.
Can more than one person use the same account?
No, each user must create their own account, so that their certificate of completion has their specific information on it.
What format are the courses available in?
All of our text courses are available in PDF Format (Adobe Reader). If you do not already have Adobe Reader, please download it here. All video courses are formatted for optimal viewing across all devices. You can preview a video course from our course catalog in advance to determine if the video will display properly on your device.
Do I have to take the course modules in order?
No, each course is independent from the other and the course modules do not have to be taken in any particular order. For more information about each course module, click on the course title or details button for the full course description.
How much time do I have to complete a course?
Using the Login (email address and password) that you established when you purchased the course, you can go back and review the course and take the post-test for up to one year.
How do I complete the post-test?
Once you have purchased your course, an account is automatically established for you through our website. You will be able to view/print the test questions and use them as you study the course material. Once you have successfully completed the course, you can then answer the questions on our website and submit them for grading. You must pass with a 70% or higher (unless otherwise stated on the Course Details page). If you fail the test, you will be able to go back and review the course and re-take the test (at no additional charge) until successful completion.
When will I receive my CEU certificate?
Your certificate will be available to print IMMEDIATELY after passing the post-test. A passing post-test score is 70% (unless otherwise stated on the Course Details page). If you do not pass the test the first time, it will be assumed that you need to review the material for better understanding. You will then be redirected to the course, where you can review the material and take the test again until successful completion. The certificate is also automatically emailed to your email account.
What happens if I lose my certificate?
Your LOGIN information allows you to access the courses you have already completed for up to one year. You can reprint your certificate during this time. After one year, all of your course information, including your certificate is stored in your account under the link CEU History. This information is available to you for 5 years from the date of purchase. After a period of 5 years, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we will be happy to assist you.
What happens if I have not finished taking my Unlimited Access courses after one year?
After one year from date of purchase, you will no longer have access to the Unlimited library. You will need to purchase the plan again.
What if I forgot to utilize my Unlimited Access courses and the year has expired?
Due to the extremely low price of our Unlimited plan, we can not offer an extension. You have one year from the date of purchase to complete your Unlimited Access courses.
Will I receive an itemized receipt?
Yes, your receipt will be e-mailed to you immediately following your purchase. Your receipt is also available in your My Account by clicking on the link labeled Receipts. You will be able to print it for your records or submit it to your employer for reimbursement.
Why are courses listed in some states as: Approved, No State Requirements, or Board Accepted?
Every state agency has different requirements. Some state agencies require their own approval. Others state agencies have a reciprocal agreement–meaning they automatically approve courses that are approved in other states. “No State Requirement” applies to states that do not have a state continuing competency/education requirement. Finally “Board Accepted” is applicable in states that do not have an approval process. AdvantageCEUs.com has reviewed the requirements in those states and has interpreted the requirements as being met by the course.
IMPORTANT: Please remember that state requirements are constantly changing. It is ultimately THE LICENSEE’S responsibility to determine approval for their state/discipline. We would, however, be happy to help with this process in any way we can.
Can I take a course if it is not approved in my state?
ABSOLUTELY!! Most states have a process whereby the licensee may submit an application for a continuing education course to be approved. We would be happy to help supply you with the needed items (Instructor’s CV, Course Outline, etc..) that might be required.
I don’t have a license, can I still take one of your courses?
Absolutely, in your account you will be asked for your license number, state and profession. Simply pick any state, your profession and fill in the number field with zeros (i.e. 0000). The system will allow you to now start adding or completing courses.
When/if you obtain a license, you can always log back into your account and click on the license tab and update your license information.
How does AdvantageCEUs.com report to CE Broker?
Course completion credit is automatically reported to CE Broker using our integrated software. In order for this to work properly, you must add your license information in your user account as instructed. Our system verifies your license with CE Broker and tells you it is verified. Once you complete the course, your information is immediately transferred to CE Broker. If you did not add your license information as instructed in your account, our system states “Will Not Report To CE Broker and your course information will not transfer/report to CE Broker.
AdvantageCEUs.com currently only reports courses to CE Broker when REQUIRED by state board. (Users can always report courses manually).
How long does it take my courses to report to CE Broker?
If your state REQUIRES us to report to CE Broker, we report the results IMMEDIATELY after you complete the test. However, it sometimes takes CE Broker 24-48 hours to post it to your online account (especially in peak season).
How do I cancel an online purchase?
If you would like to cancel an online purchase and have NOT completed the course test, please contact us within 24 hours and we will refund the purchase price, minus the processing fee (that we are charged). To avoid fraudulent refunds, if you have already obtained a certificate of completion, please contact us to lodge a legitimate complaint and explain why you proceeded through the test, survey and certificate generation steps before requesting a refund.
What if I have a complaint?
We are striving to make sure your experience meets all your CEU expectations. If, however, there is an issue that needs to be resolved, please contact us at: email@example.com or 405-974-0164 and we will work with you to find a satisfactory resolution.
