ACC Online Learning
ATTENDEES ARE RESPONSIBILE FOR EARNING CREDITS/HOURS
While ACC reports credits/hours for eligible attendees, it is the sole responsibility of the attendee to meet the criteria to earn those credits/hours - and by the associated deadlines.
It is not the responsibility of ACC to notify attendees that they did not meet the requirements or accommodate individuals who failed to meet the outlined deadlines to earn credits/hours.
Attendees are responsible for reading below the details on how and when ACC reports attendance and credits/hours. It is the responsibility of the attendee to retrieve their PDH certificate of completion from their RCEP account, from AIA, and to self-report to APA.
NO INDIVIDUAL MAY REPORT EARNED CREDITS/HOURS TO STATE LICENSING BOARDS THAT HAVE NOT BEEN REPORTED BY ACC - AND IN THE EVENT THAT HAPPENS, ACC WILL CONTACT THE STATE LICENSING BOARD AND CONTEST THE EARNING OF THOSE CREDITS/HOURS. ACC WILL NOT JEOPARDIZE OUR ABILITY TO OFFER CREDITS/HOURS FOR THE SYMPOSIUM - OR FAIL TO ADHERE TO OUR RESPONSIBILITIES AS AN APPROVED/REGISTERED CONTINUING EDUCATION PROVIDER.
REPORTING OF ATTENDANCE AND CREDITS/HOURS BY ACC
ACC will report attendance for eligible attendees directly to RCEP.net 30 days upon completion of the 2023 Symposium - and upon confirmation of the accreditation criteria completed by the attendee. Information is reported to RCEP using the work email address provided by the attendee.
Attendees have not earned PDH credits from ACC for any training/event until AFTER attendance is reported by ACC to RCEP.net.
Once attendance is reported by ACC to RCEP.net, a certificate of completion is automatically generated in the RCEP system for each participant and deposited into their RCEP Subscriber Account. Each participant will receive an email confirmation from RCEP/ACEC immediately after the certificate of completion has been deposited. Be sure to check your junk/spam in-box in the event this email is not approved for distribution by your organization's email firewall/spam filter.
If the participant is new to RCEP.net, a free and basic subscriber account is created for that participant and the certificate is deposited into their subscriber account. In this case, the email distributed will include your password to access your RCEP.net account - and check your junk/spam email filters.
Attendees that already have an RCEP subscriber account will simply receive the additional attendance record/PDHs Certificate deposited into their RCEP subscriber account.
Upon receipt of the RCEP/ACEC email, attendees can then log-in to their RCEP.net account and download/print a copy of their certificate of completion.
NOTE: ACC does not have access to the RCEP account of any participant, nor information on account passwords. Participants will need to contact RCEP directly at (202) 347-7474 for assistance, or can visit RCEP.net, enter their work email address in the log-in, and click "Forgot Password."
Upon meeting the accreditation criteria by attending the duration of the training/event and any associated attendance/evaluation surveys, attendees holding the AICP professional designation must self-report their CM credits to the American Planning Association (APA). Please refer to Course # 9263025.
LU AND LU/HSW HOURS
Upon meeting the accreditation criteria by attending the duration of the Symposium and completing attendance and evaluation surveys, ACC (AIA provider #G173 - Course # 2023ACCSYMP) reports attendance and LU/HSW hours for AIA members directly to AIA CES. ACC will report these hours within 10 business days of the conclusion of the Symposium if the attendee has met the criteria, and up to the March accreditation deadline. Attendees not AIA members can submit a request to ACC for a certificate of completion within 10 days of the program completion. Requests must be in writing and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org. Those requesting certificates must also complete the attendance verification and evaluation surveys.
If you should have any questions pertaining to the accreditation process and/or earning credits/hours, please contact email@example.com.
ACC IS AN APPROVED/REGISTERED CONTINUING EDUCATION PROVIDER TO OFFER CREDITS/HOURS
