How do I access the 15 free online courses?
1) In SHOP NSPE, select "Free for Members" from the navigation. Offerings will be marked down to a $0 sale for members. (They will also be linked from the members-only section and Education Web page.)
2) LOG IN so you can "purchase" the offerings with the member price and then access the webinar in your account.
3) Once you complete the checkout process go to “My Account” to view the course. It will be saved to the On-Demand Webinars tab under your account profile.
How do I get my documentation?
After you view the webinar you can click on the quiz tab and take the quiz. The participant must take the quiz and pass with 70% or higher. After passing the quiz, your certificate will be unlocked and you can download it for your records.
What technology is needed to participate?
Members must have a computer, with audio capabilities, that accesses the Internet. If you have any trouble viewing the webinar please try a different web browser or make sure you check your computer’s security settings such as VPN or security software installed on the computer.
Are these all valid in my state?
NSPE's continuing education offerings are provided as a benefit to all professional engineers to enhance their professional growth and development. State requirements concerning acceptability of offerings vary from state to state. NSPE makes no representation concerning the suitability of its offerings under any state law or regulation. Participants are urged to refer to each state's continuing education requirements for specific guidelines.
At a minimum, ethics courses are accepted in all states at this time. The most likely answer is no, not one member will utilize all 15 free online courses as most state licensing boards require some face-to-face meetings. And many states, such as Florida, require a majority of their continuing education to be on specific topics such as state laws, codes, and regulations, something national will never be able to supply.
Does NSPE report my participation to my state?
NSPE does not report directly to any states. You will be able to download a certificate of attendance after passing the quiz. Please download the certificate and keep for your records. You can use that certificate to report your credits to your state. If your state requires direct reporting, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Will you be changing the selection of the courses?
Each year, NSPE will take down the current 15 free and put up a different selection of 15 free courses for active members only. Be sure to renew early so you can continue to take advantage of the new courses.
