On Demand FAQ’s

How long do I have to complete my CPE exam?
Per AICPA and NASBA Standards, QAS self-study courses must include an expiration date that is no longer than 1 year from the date of purchase.
When do courses expire?

GLS does not want you to spend your time on outdated content. Many of our update courses are replaced annually in March and April, while courses with longer shelf lives are reviewed regularly to ensure the content remains relevant. Course expiration dates are clearly marked in LCvista. A three-month grace period is extended beyond the final enrollment period to ensure registered users have plenty of time to complete a course.

What if I get a review question wrong?

Keeping with NASBA QAS Self Study policies, our on demand courses feature three review questions per CPE hour. Review questions include detailed feedback to help you understand where you went wrong, and you can try as many times as needed until you answer correctly. These questions do not count towards your final assessment.

What is the refund policy?

Generally, our on-demand courses are billed at enrollment and are nonrefundable. GLS will make every effort to provide the best training course possible. In compliance with our NASBA policy, please contact Frank Galasso at operations@galassolearningsolutions.com within 10 business days of the event if you are not satisfied with the program.

Do you offer any discounts for bulk or group purchases?
Yes! If you are interested in purchasing 8 or more CPE credits or for 5 or more of your team members, please reach out to teresa@galassolearningsolutions.com.
Is there an exam? What’s the passing grade? What if I don’t pass?

GLS on-demand courses follow NASBA QAS Self Study policies, which include a final assessment. The assessment is comprised of 5 questions per CPE credit hour. A passing grade of 70% or higher is needed to earn CPE credit. The exam may be retaken.

Can I rewind, fast forward or speed up the video?

GLS’s video-based self-study courses are designed to promote learning and retention and comply with NASBA. Video segments must be watched in their entirety once. After viewing a segment, navigation controls are enabled and the segment can be watched again, skipped, rewound, and fast-forwarded. Videos can be paused at any time. Courses can also be closed and resumed at the last segment completed. You cannot fast-forward through content until the segment has been watched in its entirety. You cannot increase the speed of a recording as that does not meet NASBA standards.
