Instructions for obtaining CPE certificate:

After attending class, you will receive an email that is titled Feedback and CPE for (class name).  The Feedback Survey requires answers for three or four questions. When done, hit submit.  Each individual will receive a second email that has a link for downloading their CPE Certificate.  It will download as “badgexxxxxxxx” where the “x’s” are random characters, but represent the unique identifier assigned to each registrant.  This file will appear in the “Recently Downloaded” file, and it will also be seen at the bottom left of the monitor.  Click on it and save with Name and Class Info to a Folder to retain the certificates.  SC Midlands ISACA Chapter 54 does not report your CPEs to ISACA International – this is each member’s responsibility.

To obtain any class materials, use your class confirmation number and the weblink for the event to reenter the class website.  When you are on the Summary Page, there are several Tabs running across the top of the page - Look for the one titled "Information".  Click on it, and then a tab for “Class Material” should show up.
