Convenient, Interactive Online Courses
VSPN online CE is one of the most popular ways to earn CE credits. Direct interaction with instructors and fellow participants on message boards as well as real time sessions make VSPN CE unique.
Whether you take your CE courses on VSPN or elsewhere, you can keep track of all of your past, present, and future continual education participation with MyCE. You can view previous, current, and upcoming course registrations, view or print your VSPN CE certificates, and keep track of credits you've earned.
