What is Continuing Education Tracking in Certification Programs

What generally is referred to as Continuing Education in Certification Programs are the educational activities a certified individual will have to carry out to maintain their certifications. These activities may include taking courses from a recognized educational provider or attending industry-related conferences.


Continuing Education Tracking for Channel Partner Training

When you are certifying an external audience like Channel Partners, Resellers, Certified Agents, etc., it is important to require continuing education activities to ensure the certified individuals keep up with the education until the next recertification. You can publish the recognized continuing education providers list and how many CE hours will be awarded for each activity. The certified individuals can be required to earn a certain number of CE hours to maintain their certification.
