Can I get CAE credits though ASAE Learning Online?
Yes. The CAE Commission determines which courses will receive CAE credits. In ALO, credits are not available for short courses (less than 30 minutes), micro-lessons (less than five minutes), or for courses deemed outside the realm of the CAE exam domains. When you complete CAE-approved learning activities within the platform, you will earn credit toward eligibility requirements and/or maintenance that will be tracked in your transcript in your ASAE profile. The number of credits available for each course is indicated in the course description in the platform.

What are the transcript features within ASAE Learning Online?
A transcript that automatically tracks your ASAE Learning Online completions is built into the platform. You may also add your own self-reported activities—those you take with other industry organizations or even formal on-the-job training programs. Your transcript is easily accessible and can be exported or printed for reporting purposes.

How much time is required to complete the learning activities?
The duration of learning activities varies widely, from micro-lessons to courses to multi-course curricula/pathways. Activities that earn CAE credits usually take 30 minutes or more to complete. Other activities are shorter, some as brief as two minutes.

How often will new activities be added?
ASAE Learning is continuously curating new learning activities with industry-leading content creators and adding new activities to the platform every month. Original content developed by ASAE Learning in collaboration with subject matter experts is also added regularly. Selections from ASAE conferences and face-to-face learning events are also available exclusively through ASAE Learning Online.

Can I access my ASAE Learning Online account on my mobile device?
Yes. Responsive mobile design and notifications make it easy to use ASAE Learning Online on-the-go or from remote locations. If you prefer to use an app, we recommend the SumTotal Classic mobile app, available in the iTunes App Store and Google Play App Store. To get started in the app:

If five or more subscriptions are purchased together as a connected group, managers can take advantage of tools to make recommendations or set requirements for learning across the group as well as set up and track group goals and career development plans.

Do ASAE Learning Online activities have closed captioning functionality?
