Terms and Conditions

Documentation of CE Credit

  • To receive CE credit, a passing score of 75% or better is required. You are allowed three attempts to successfully complete the examination.  Examinations for each course will average 6 to 8 questions per hour of instructional time.  Exceptions to this include courses that require learners to pass 100% of multiple choice evaluation questions at the end of each learning module in order to progress onto the next module, but in these instances, learners will have the opportunity to correct erroneous answers after reviewing relevant course content.

  • Documentation of CE credit is available upon successful course completion. For courses that do not produce a certificate automatically, email CE program administrator, Jessica Stavig at

  • Documentation of CE credit is based on the date the exam is completed. The completion date cannot be changed.

Course Deadlines

  • All video on-demand courses have a specified access period. You will have access to view and complete your course for 12 months from the time of your purchase. Please check your email confirmation for purchase date.

  • Courses will only be available for CE credit once.  Learners are permitted to take a course in subsequent years as a refresher for free; however, CE credit will not be granted for the same course twice.

File a Complaint

Complaints regarding CE courses can be directed to our CE program administrator, Jessica Stavig, in writing via the form linked below. You can choose to submit your complaint anonymously or confidentially. All complaints will be reviewed by the NPSC CE committee. If the committee deems a complaint to be sufficiently serious, a meeting between the instructors and the committee will be held to determine if the complaint has merit. If a complaint is deemed to have merit a corrective plan will be developed. Corrective action could include requiring revisions to course content or delivery method or the removal of the course from NPSC course offerings. Complaints likely to be deemed serious enough to require a meeting between a course instructor and the CE committee include complaints involving discrimination, failure to provide reasonable accommodations as required by the Americans with Disabilities Act, abusive behavior, or failure to meet the requirement that the information provided is based on rigorous empirical evidence. 

If a complaint is made confidentially, a summary of the findings of the committee and any corrective actions required will be provided to the person who lodged the complaint. If a complaint and subsequent investigation by the CE committee reveals that a serious breach of program standards has occurred and the complaint was lodged confidentially, a full or partial refund of any program fees collected may be provided.
