Did you know that VIN and VSPN CE Real Time Sessions are NOT mandatory? While it is beneficial to attend the sessions, we issue a written transcript of the session, offer a Unity recording (screencast) and if audio is used, we post an audio file in the library. You can make up participation via the message boards. Earning a certificate of participation is not difficult. There are three components; posting participation, reading participation (message boards) and taking an end of course test. For more information on how our CE courses work, visit the CE Participant Resource Center area (click on the banner link). Visit the CE Portal to see a list of courses open for enrollment.
