Unlimited Continuing Education (hereinafter CE) members pay for yearly access to FurtherEd's on- demand CE programs and specific memberships also include access to live CE webcasts and live CE events. Each member's access is defined at the time of enrollment.
Lifetime Learner Program
Lifetime Learner membership includes: all on-demand CE programs in our Unlimited CE package, all live CE webcasts and all live CE events. Lifetime Learner membership may terminate if FurtherEd is purchased by another entity, FurtherEd no longer exists, or FurtherEd no longer sells CE products. If any of the events stated supra happens within the first five (5) years of your initial purchase and FurtherEd or the entity that purchases FurtherEd no longer offers either CE or the Lifetime Learner memberships for CE, you will be refunded or credited the pro-rated amount to your account not to exceed the total amount you paid for Lifetime Learner membership.
Course Expiration Dates
Due to the different rules and guidelines for each state governing CE requirements, certain courses will expire at different times. To be sure that you are taking courses before their expiration date, please check the course page. The rules state that you must apply for credit with the CE Education governing body for your state on or before the date of expiration.
FurtherEd has a policy that if one of our users purchased a course that expired before credit was received, we will switch that course for another of equal or lesser value for no charge. However, it is important for the user to be aware of which courses are expiring and to take the necessary actions to complete the course before the date of expiration. FurtherEd is not responsible for any actions taken against the individual for failure to complete required CE credits on time because of an expiration issue.
