CPE Credit

How many CPE credits will I earn by participating in a webinar or a CPE On-Demand?

Strafford CPE Webinars and CPE On-Demand are 110 minutes long and generally earn 2.0 CPE credits. The exact amount depends on the duration of attendance, including Q&A, and thus cannot be determined in advance. Where CPE credit is available on 90-minute legal (CLE) programs, the number of credits earned is generally 1.0 to 1.5.

Why is there a separate charge for CPE credit processing?

We have a separate processing charge for those attendees seeking optional CPE credits. That way, only those who need CPE credits incur those costs.

For attendees seeking CPE credits, there is a processing charge of $35 per person.
