CAI-MN's website offers you the ability to track your Continuing Education credits in your member profile.

Adding Credits From Non-CAI-MN Programs

  • To add Continuing Education credit obtained from non-CAI-MN programs, simply click on the Add Entry link.
  • Please note: Do not use this link for any CAI-MN events. If you attended an CAI-MN event and it is not visible in your listing of credits, please contact the CAI-MN office.
Add Credits
  • Once you click on the Add Entry link, you will see a pop-up screen that will ask you to enter several items. Fields marked with a red asterisk are required.
    • Is this entry for a Certificate or Program? - Always leave this as "yes.”
    • Certification/Program - Select "Continuing Education Credits.”
    • Credit Type - There are several types listed. Select the most appropriate credit type from the drop-down menu. Please note: The only credits that you should be adding are non-CAI-MN credits. All CAI-MN events are added automatically. You should never need to use the CAI-MN credit types.
    • Entry Date - Enter the date the event occurred.
    • Description - Please include a brief description of the event or program.
    • Credits - Please input the total number of credits received at the event you attended. One credit equals one full hour of professional development.
    • Credits Expire - Please list the expiration date of credits you received. If there is no expiration date, please enter a date that is three years from the date the event was held. All CE credits are set to expire in three years. The credits will remain in your Professional Development listings, but won’t be used.
    • Score - enter your score, if applicable.
    • Activity Code- If your event includes an activity code, include it here. If there wasn't one included, please use the date you achieved the credit (example: 2014-02-05).
    • Attachments- Upload your proof of attendance here. This can include a certificate of participation or an agenda from the event. Acceptable file types are .doc, .docx and .pdf.
    • Submit - After all of these items have been entered, select Submit. The event should then be included in your Professional Development listing (you may have to refresh your screen for it to appear).

Printing Your Fellowship Certificate

  • To print your Certificate, select the Certifications/Programs tab.
  • Select the icon next to CAI-MN Certification.
  • Select Print in the dialog box that appears.
  • Please note: If you have obtained general CAI-MN credits, the status may show as Incomplete. This does not refer to your original certification or recertification status. It shows up this way due to required programming in the system. If you have questions about any of your Continuing Education Credits, please contact the CAI-MN office.
