Improvements to Course Management Search Function and Display Button
As of July 18th, providers will have the option to search for existing courses with improved course search filters. One filter is status. Potential status of a course could be all, inactive, or active, and within the status of all, and active, providers could also search for courses in a status of draft submission, pending admin approval, denied, or requires more information. Search results will be displayed in reverse chronological order.
No Form Bs
Unfortunately, we continue to receive course attendance forms in use before CES Discovery was launched in October 2010. These forms are not formatted for the CES Discovery system, and as a result they are rejected. If a firm or a provider representative submits these forms for attendance the members do not receive the credit. The AIA/CES Quality Assurance Manager will be notified to follow up on these submission errors with the provider of record for the courses.
If you are unsure of how to register a course or submit attendance, please review the tutorials posted to the CES Discovery home page.
Provider Trainings Available

Electronic Attendance Form Common Errors
The Electronic Attendance Forms, both the single course version and the conference version located in the Resources area of CES Discovery, are offered as a service primarily to our Providers who host frequent or very large events. For detailed instruction on entering attendance, please visit the tutorials on CES Discovery in the Resources area.
Thank you to all Providers who participated in the CES Provider Connection May 2011 survey about training needs and programs. If you have not completed the survey we ask that you take the time this month. The final result with your help is expected to be compiled at the end of a few months and will be included in a future CES Provider Connection. We would strongly encourage you to participate!
