After completing the module requirements (i.e. Pre-assessment, Post-assessment, and Module Evaluation), access your My Account (top right corner of your computer screen) page for links to registering for continuing education credits. 

Note: You may need to review the module and take the post-assessment again if your post-assessment has expired in order to become eligible for CEUs or Type-2 CEs.

You will need to click the link for the type of continuing education units you wish to earn. Below is an example of what the active links will look like on your 'My Account' page once you are eligible.
