Course Questions

Are the courses approved by the Minnesota Department of Commerce?
Yes, all courses listed in the course catalog have been approved by the Minnesota Department of Commerce and have been assigned a course approval number. Check the course description page for each course in the catalog to view course approval details.

How do you start a course?
Go to, choose your state (if this is your first visit) and log in with the Username and Password. When you have logged in, click on your CE Manager to view the course(s) you have purchased. To begin the course, click "Start".

What kind of computer and system requirements do I need to run a course?Tto review the minimum computer hardware and software requirements please view the System Requirements page.

Can I use the course on more than one computer?
You can complete your course on any computer with an Internet connection that meets our system requirements.

How long does it take to complete a course?
If you are unfamiliar with the content and your computer skills are limited you can expect to spend an hour of time on the course for each credit. The time per credit may be significantly reduced if you are familiar with the material and/or are comfortable using computers. A good indicator of whether you are pacing your learning appropriately is whether you can pass the end-of-module self-checks on the first attempt. These assessments are not difficult for individuals who have reviewed the course content.

What happens if I open a course and leave it inactive for a period of time?
If no activity is detected from your system for a period of 20 minutes, the CE Network system will time you out. If you attempt to continue with the course after 20 minutes have elapsed, you will be requested to exit the course, log into CE Network again and restart the course. The progress during this inactive time will not be tracked. Once you log back into the system, you will be returned to the last screen where your time was recorded.

How long do I have to access the course?
Once you have completed a course, you may return to it as often as you like for review until the course expires. Courses expire on June 30, 2010.

How do I receive credit for a CE Network course?
Upon completing the online requirements for the course you will be presented a final course screen that will allow you to print your completion certificate. You should print this and file this certificate for your records in the event that you are audited by the Department of Commerce.

You do not need to notify us of your course completion, we store a permanent record of your course completion in our head office files. CE Network also forwards the appropriate proof of completion to the Minnesota Department of Commerce as per the regulations and in a timely manner.
