Information about what ContinuingEdStore is, does, and can be for you.
ContinuingEdStore is a simple, easy-to-use online resources for licensed professionals to store, track, and analyze their continuing education courses and credits.
Whether you're a single proprietor or a large shop, your reputation, career, and livelihood rely on your professional licenses and credentials. These accreditations represent not only your qualifications, but also your continued pursuit of perfecting your trade. ContinuingEdStore provides resources to help maximize the content, timing, and costs of your continuing education.
ContinuingEdStore is about more than just keeping track of your continuing education credits. Use ContinuingEdStore to store your course work and notes, to analyze how and when you complete your education requirements, and to make sure your staff, partners, and colleagues are all aware of your progress. Or, use ContinuingEdStore to make sure you and your professional licensing body agree on how many credits you've completed.
ContinuingEdStore Enterprise Access allows a single user to view multiple accounts at once in order to better track the coursework of multiple professionals.
This single access viewpoint allows managers and HR employees to easily ensure that all team members are current and up to date with course requirements.
ContinuingEdStore Enterprise Access also comes with Advanced Analytics across all accounts, allowing firm wide verification and analysis of employee course completions by credit type across professions and subject areas as well as by course provider and course type.
ContinuingEdStore Premium accounts are perfect for small shops looking to spend more time focusing on their work rather than their administrative duties.
With a ContinuingEdStore Premium account professionals can track their course work, store their course notes and materials, and easily analyze their course usage. Premium accounts also come with automatic email reminders of outstanding requirements, credits fulfilled, and analysis of completed courses.
No problem. Any ContinuingEdStore account will upload and store any credit type. Premium and Enterprise accounts allow you to view credits by the licenses to which they're assigned, so you can view and analyze CPE, CLE, and CME separately.
Getting started with ContinuingEdStore is easy. If you haven't already, you should try it.

The registration page involves two simple steps:

ContinuingEdStore Premium and Enterprise users may store electronic versions of these documents or links to these materials on a course provider's server. To do so, visit the credit detail page by selecting More under the "Details" column of the Completed Courses table on your main account dashboard.
ContinuingEdStore's Advanced Analytics breaks down coursework by several categories to give a more accurate picture of how courses are taken, by which method, and through which provider.
Advanced Analytic categories include:
Email updates detail how many credits are stored in your account and how many have been added since your last update email. Think of it as a progress report.
License reminder emails let you know when your license is due for renewal, how many days you have until that date, how many credits are associated with that particular license, and how that credit total compares to your requirements.
Enterprise accounts show an analytics dashboard with the same metrics and features as individual Premium and connected Enterprise users. For group accounts, this data is aggregated across connected users and can be broken down on a per user basis by viewing that user's analytics page.
Absolutely. Let us know what you have in mind.
If you're already a ContinuingEdStore Basic user, visit the change account page and follow the instructions there. If you're not a ContinuingEdStore user, you'll have the option to sign up for ContinuingEdStore Premium when you register.
Most features will automatically turn on as soon as your order has been processed, with your account being set to issue quarterly update emails as a default. With a few features, including license reminder emails and associating credits with your license, you'll have to set when and how you want to use these features yourself.
A full breakdown of features by account type is available on our accounts page.
Each Premium account is allowed one admin connection for a second viewer to manage and - yes - administer the account under their own login credentials. Premium account subscribers can set view/edit permissions for this user, customizing their access to the primary user's specifications.
Admin users can only see the account to which they are connected and do not have access to features that will allow them to manage or track their own continuing education credits and requirements. To enable admin users to do so, look into ContinuingEdStore Enterprise accounts.
Your subscription will remain active until the end of your current billing period, at which point your account will revert to a ContinuingEdStore Basic account and Premium features will be turned off.
If you're already a ContinuingEdStore Basic user, visit the change account page and follow the instructions there. If you're not a ContinuingEdStore user, you'll have the option to sign up for ContinuingEdStore Enterprise when you register.
Most features will automatically turn on as soon as your order has been processed, with your account being set to issue quarterly update emails as a default. From there, all you'll have to do is request users link accounts with your new Enterprise account.
ContinuingEdStore's connection page lets you request connections to existing ContinuingEdStore users. On this page you can set their connection type (connection or hub user on your account).
If the users you'd like to connect with your account are not registered with ContinuingEdStore you can either invite them to join or provide your account key for use when registering. A link with this account key pre-embedded is available on the "Account" tab of the Enterprise dashboard.
Hub users are the center of your Enterprise network. These users are able to see and edit all connected accounts per those users' permissions.
Hub users can manage and edit connected accounts per those users' permission settings. They cannot make changes to overall account settings, like connection levels, or payment information. These settings can only be changed by the main account contact.
To upgrade and downgrade visit the change account page. These changes can only be made by the main account contact.
If you're attempting to downgrade and have more active and pending connections than allowed in your new account level, you'll be prompted to delete some connections before proceeding.
Main account contacts are the users who initiate the Enterprise subscription.
Yes, please contact us with the name and email address of the current main account contact and the user you wish to make the new account contact.
Visit our connection page to request a new connection.
Privacy and permission settings allow users to determine if a connection can view and edit credits, licenses, and orders. Permission settings can be set for changing personal and profile information.
In all cases, these permissions are set by the user whose account is being viewed.
After requesting a connection, a notification email will be sent to the requestee. The requestor will receive an email confirmation if the request has been approved.
For the hub connections on Enterprise accounts, this information will be the default view in the account dashboard.
All users can view this information in the Profile tab of the main account dashboard.
Both of these views include links to a connection detail page with further information.
Wherever you see information about a connection, you'll have the option to delete that connection.
Go to ContinuingEdStore's change account page and select your new account type.
If you're upgrading from ContinuingEdStore Basic you'll be asked to provide a credit card for your new subscription.
If you're upgrading or downgrading from one subscription type to another, your payment information will be changed and you'll be charged at the new rate in your account.
If you're downgrading from one level of ContinuingEdStore Enterprise to another and have more users connected to your account than allowed in your new tier, you'll be prompted to delete some connections before you can proceed.
Cancelling a Premium or Enterprise subscription doesn't mean the ContinuingEdStore party has to end. Your account and those of all connected users will revert to a ContinuingEdStore Basic account, storing the same information about your credits and licenses it once did. The only difference is your access to the information and management tools available through Premium and Enterprise subscriptions.
No. Issuer accounts allow unlimited courses, credits, uploads, and distributions.
No. At the time of issue courses are automatically placed in a user's account.
When a credit is issued, ContinuingEdStore checks for the cooresponding member's account. If no account is issued, an invitation is sent to the email address specified with the credit. When a user account is registered with that email address on ContinuingEdStore those credits are automatically placed in the newly created account.
Registration is not required for users to download credits. Regardless of the distribution method, users will be given a unique URL and access number that can be used to access their credits without requiring login or registration.
Yes. Once a credit has been issued a user can change any information about that item that they like.
No. At the time of issue, issuers can no longer change information about a credit.
ContinuingEdStore's bulk upload utility allows for three types of notifications. Issuers can:
While ContinuingEdStore requires certain information for each course, whether that information is used for each credit is at the discretion of the issuer. If, for instance, a credits for a particular course are issued under a different accreditiation for a different user, that information can be customized for each credit issued or set to default to the information associated with the course.
Goodbyes are hard, and though we hate to see our users go, sometimes things change. We understand.
At the bottom of the Profile tab on the dashboard is an option to close your account. Follow the prompts and directions there and you'll be on your way.
We'll cancel your subscription and revert all connected users to a ContinuingEdStore Basic account.
