Exam applicants are encouraged to register and complete this course as soon as feasible, as classroom size is limited and the space fills quickly. Please note that the course is valid for 18 months from the date the course was completed. After completing the Professionalism course, you are provided with a CLE affidavit that you must sign indicating you have completed the course. For classes held via webinar, you will need to upload your completed affidavit here so that our Office may update your CiviCore record to indicate you have completed the course requirement. You will need your NCBE number to complete the affidavit.
