How do I receive my license renewal hours?
It's automatic! A certificate of completion for your completed course will be automatically e-mailed to the address you used when registering on the site. (This may be misdirected by spam filters, so be sure to also look in your bulk or spam folder.) This PDF certificate may be downloaded to your computer and printed for your records. You may always access your certificates by clicking "My Enrolled Courses," locating your finished course and downloading a copy of your certificate.
Also, upon completion of any course, you may also request an unofficial transcript of all coursework completed on the site. Simply log in and choose “My transcript." A space for an e-mail address is provided on the next page. Enter the e-mail address and then click "submit."

How is my attendance verified?
States have different monitoring rules which require confirmation of class attendance.
First, we use technology to monitor your progress in the program.
We monitor the number of minutes you spend on-line and even how long you spend with each course page. Each course is designed to last a certain number of minutes as your time will be reflected on your transcript and on your Certificate of Completion.
Second, some courses contain a short test at the end of each course if the state requires it. These easy tests allow interaction of the student with the program and shows mastery of the key concepts being taught in the course. The passing grade will also be reported on your transcript. A passing score is NOT needed for CE credit in any state except New Hampshire, which requires a score of 80%.
Oregon does not require a test at this time.
Does my state accept CACredits.org courses for license renewal credit?
Oregon accepts CACredits.org online courses.
Can I take courses even if my State does not accept the class or I do not need the hours?
Yes! Our experience has been that CACredits.org provides information not available from other sources and these courses are frequently taken for the information, even if the student does not obtain credit.
Once I register, is it possible to change my registration information?
