Certificate and Evaluation

As described above, the live course and the asynchronous course have different Mainpro+ credits and therefore each course has its own CME certificate.

Participants should keep their CME certificate for a minimum of six years in case you are selected for a random audit. The same certificate can be used as proof in case you are applying for a RAMQ reimbursement.

How to claim your certificate for the LIVE course:

YOU MUST DOWNLOAD YOUR CERTIFICATE BY DECEMBER 5 AT 23:59 EST.

The process to obtain your certificate is similar to last year with the exception that we are tracking your participation hours for you. Here are the steps to follow to download your certificate.

  • STEP 1: Complete the “Evaluation for Presenters” for all the presentations that you have attended. This is the only way to ensure that your total credits calculate properly. Per workshop timeslot you can only evaluate one presenter, even if you might have switched between sessions.
  • STEP 2: Complete the “Global Course Evaluation” at the end of the Course.
  • STEP 3:  Upon successful submission of the Global Course Evaluation, you will see a confirmation message on your screen as well as a button to print your certificate. Click the button to generate the PDF certificate. We recommend that you save the certificate to your device.

How to claim your certificate for the ASYNCHRONOUS course:

Between Dec 6, 2021 and Feb 6, 2022 you'll be able to access all sessions on-demand. Once you have finished watching the sessions of your choice, you need to evaluate all the relevant speakers and complete the global course evaluation form.

Upon successful submission of the Global Course Evaluation, you will see a confirmation message on your screen as well as a button to print your certificate. Click the button to generate the PDF certificate. We recommend that you save the certificate to your device.

If you finish your asynchronous self-learning in 2021, you would record your credits in 2021. If you finish in 2022, you would record your credits in 2022.
