Continuing Education Credits and the Crop Protection Network

The Crop Protection Network (CPN) has developed online quizzes for Certified Crop Advisors (CCAs) to earn continuing education units (CECs) after reading CPN publications. Each year, CCAs are required to obtain a certain amount of continuing education to maintain certification. This can be accomplished by attending in-person events or using online resources such as this one. 

In order to obtain credits, users must download and read CPN publications, which are available on a variety of crop protection topics. After reading a publication, users can select the corresponding quiz. There are 10 questions for each publication and a score of 70% correct answers must be obtained to pass. 

After successfully passing a quiz, results will be submitted to the American Society of Agronomy. Each quiz is worth 0.5 CEUs in the Integrated Pest Managment (IPM) category.
