All fees must be paid by the morning of the presentation.

Early Bird Discount

A discount is often given for registrations received at least 21 days prior to the course date. Fees are assessed by when the transactions are RECEIVED, not when the item was mailed or postmarked. The early bird expiration date listed on all course descriptions is 21 days before the course date, not including the actual course date.

Registration Confirmation

A registration confirmation is emailed to registrants within 6 hours of processing. In the event that the MTCPA does not have an email on file or has been asked by the individual to be excluded from receiving email from the MTCPA, the confirmation is mailed.

Registration Definition

MTCPA members and members of other state societies with a reciprocal agreement are eligible for a discount on the Non-member course fee. The Non-member course fee applies to all other registrants.

Virtual Group Policy

If you are attending a virtual event as a group, be sure that all attendees are registered for the event before it takes place. This ensures that attendees receive CPE certificates in a timely manner.

The member of the group who is signed in to view the webinar must respond to each of the attendance prompts that will appear during the presentation by clicking on the button on the prompt. Additionally, another form of verification is required to award CPE to those attendees not directly signed in via the event viewing platform. For your group, produce a scan of a document with: 

  1. The name and date of the event
  2. Printed names of those who attended with accompanying signatures

For your convenience, the MTCPA has prepared a printable sign-in sheet (PDF, 129 kB). Send a scan of the completed sign-in sheet to jean@mscpa.org.

Group Live Policy
  • Registration opens 1/2 hour prior to the start of class; CPE is awarded only for time instructor is presenting.
  • All attendees are required to sign in and out, indicating arrival and departure times. CPE credits are awarded based on a 50-minute hour.
  • MTCPA staff or course administrator will monitor sign-in sheets.
  • Attendees that arrive more than 10 minutes late will be required to indicate the time they arrived and add their signature to the sign-in sheet.
  • Attendees that take unscheduled breaks of more than 10 minutes will be asked to note their absence from the classroom on the sign-in sheet.
  • Attendees that leave prior to the end of the session will be required to indicate the time they departed and add their signature to the sign-in sheet.
  • As attendance is reconciled, the time recorded by an attendee as not in session will decrease the amount of credit issued.
Certificate of Attendance

To receive a Certificate of Attendance for proof of CPE credit, participants must sign-in and sign-out with the on-site representative at each event. Each participant will receive a link to the Certificate of Attendance via email within 10 business days. Please note: If no signature appears on the sign-in/out sheet, MTCPA is unable to verify your attendance.
