  • How do participation codes work? Letter codes are shown throughout certain types of programs (such as Live Webcasts) to confirm attendance to complete Certification. For all ACPEN live webcasts and live webcast replays, there will be 3 attendance codes shown per hour. Each letter will display twice. If the program uses participation codes, there will be an introduction video that plays at the very start of your program explaining how these codes work. Selecting the, ‘Save Letter Code,’ button will save this code in the Participation Code section of your Certification process. However, if you select, ‘Save Letter Code,’ and the code was scheduled to display an additional time, you will not see the repeated display as you have already acknowledged and entered the code. We also recommend writing down each of these participation codes as well. Saving the letter code is for your convenience, but knowing the codes proves attendance.

TEMPORARY VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE If your video has stopped momentarily and this issue isn't occurring consistently, please click on the "Reload Video" button at the bottom left corner of your viewer. If a video playback issue consistently repeats - see below section. CONSISTENT VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE STEP #1: LOCK ONTO THE LEAST DEMANDING VIDEO STREAM You may be having intermittent issue with your Internet connection. This solution will lock you onto the lowest video stream that may smooth out your video playback experience. Hover your mouse over the video player Hover your mouse over the HD text at the bottom right of your video player Select "180" to lock your video onto the least demanding video stream. If video playback issues continue - move onto Step #2 below STEP #2: ​SWITCH TO AN ALTERNATE INTERNET BROWSER Your Internet cache in your browser may need to be cleaned/cleared out. If you are unsure on how to clear your browser cache, an alternate and quicker option is to try switching to a different browser to continue viewing the program.
