How can I register with Aspira CE if I don't have a license yet?
You can simply select “No” when asked if you have a license when creating your account. The system will then remove those fields from your Create an Account page.

Change your license information to your subsequent license info, click on “Save Changes”, go back to your myCourses page, click on the tab “Aspira Courses I’ve Passed” and then reprint your certificates. Continue this process with any other licenses you may have that accepts courses from our site.

How do I get a receipt of my purchase?

What is the difference between an Online Interactive CE Course and a Home-Study Course?
If you submit a completed course/exam to the CE provider via regular mail, then you have taken a home-study course. If the course/exam is completed and submitted online, then the hours are approved as an online interactive CE course. Many state boards, such as the California Board of Behavioral Services, allow all required continuing education to be earned from online interactive continuing education courses. Check with your respective board to determine the amount of hours/units that are permitted online.
FAQs: Certificate Printing Problems
My certificate doesn't fit on page when I print it.
You should print your certificate in landscape (wide) mode. To do so, select landscape mode from the print dialog that appears when you select the Print Certificate button. Consult your computer’s system or printer manual for more information.
My certificate only shows a few words, with no certificate border.
In most browsers, background images are not printed by default. To properly print the certificates, you must tell your browser to print background images. To do so, follow the instructions for your browser:
Select the Tools menu, then select Internet Options. In the dialog that appears, select the Advanced tab at the top, then scroll down the list of options until you find the Printing section. Make sure the Print background colors and images option is selected, then click the OK button.
Select Print, then click on the Copies & Pages dropdown menu, select Safari and check the box that says Print backgrounds.
Select the File menu, then select Page Setup. In the dialog that appears, check the Print Background (colors & images) box.
Unfortunately, Chrome does not yet support printing background images. While you can use Chrome for all other features our site provides, to print certificates, you must use a different browser.
