What are signup codes, and how do they work?
When you purchase registration for an event, a signup code for that event is added to your account. If you purchase multiple registrations, a separate code will be generated for each registration. Each code can be redeemed on your dashboard in order to complete enrollment in the event. You can also purchase registration on behalf of your colleagues. Simply give them the signup code for the event they need to access to, and they can redeem it on their own account; the account that made the purchase and the account that is enrolling in the event does not need to be the same. Each signup code is valid for one registration.
When I redeemed my signup code, I got an error message saying "The course belonging to sign up code (code here) no longer exists." What do I do?
This message will display if there are any typos or extra spaces in your code. Please try again, confirming that there are no extra characters or spaces after entering your code.
How do I purchase registration for a webinar, eCourse, or on-demand learning?
Locate the event you’d like to purchase registration for in our catalog. Then, click the “Register” button at the top or bottom of the event description. You’ll be brought to your cart, where you can specify the number of registrations you want to purchase and then check out.
What credit cards do you accept for payment?
We accept Visa, Mastercard, and Amex credit cards.
How do I access the event I purchased registration for?
You can access your event by entering in the signup code for that event in the “Sign Up” section on your Dashboard. If you purchased registration, you’ll receive an email with a link to view your purchased signup code(s). You can also access all of your purchased signup codes at any time by clicking on your name in the top right corner of the eLearning site and then clicking “Signup Codes.” You will see all signup codes you have purchased, as well as information on if and when they have been redeemed and by who. If you purchased registration on behalf of your colleague(s), they can use the code(s) you purchased to enroll in the event. Each signup code is valid for one registration.
