In the world of professional development, continuing education is the cornerstone of growth and excellence. 

In today's fast-paced world, professionals crave interactive, engaging content that not only informs but also inspires. Yet, platforms like MyPESCPE persist in offering courses that feel more like a blast from the past than a step into the future. Imagine trying to learn by just reading a big block of text. Plus, when the information is old and outdated, it's like studying history instead of learning about what's happening now.

But the problem runs deeper than just the format of the courses. It's about the integrity of the entire CPE system. When professionals can easily game the system by skimming through text and finding answers with a simple search shortcut (ctrl + F), it undermines the purpose of continuing education. CPE should be about genuine learning, not about finding shortcuts to fulfill requirements.

People are finding ways to cheat by quickly finding answers online (Ctrl + F) instead of actually learning the material. And when the courses are out of date, it's hard for professionals to stay on top of what's new and important in their fields.

I recently saw people on Reddit talking about how they're finishing their courses super quickly by just searching for answers online. That's not what learning should be about!

It's abundantly clear that change is overdue. NASBA must take decisive action to raise the bar for CPE providers, implementing stringent policies and enforcement mechanisms to ensure that courses meet modern standards of quality and relevance.

By holding providers accountable and fostering an environment of innovation and excellence, NASBA can help usher in a new era of continuing education—one where professionals are empowered to thrive in today's ever-evolving landscape.

It's disheartening to see how easy it is for some people to game the system and cheat their way through continuing education requirements. Kudos for shedding light on this important issue!

NASBA definitely needs to crack down on outdated courses and implement measures to prevent cheating. Let's demand better for ourselves and for the future of our professions!

While I understand the frustration, but some might find value in traditional text-based courses, while others prefer more interactive formats. Perhaps a balance between enforcing standards and providing diverse learning options could be the way forward.

I couldn't agree more! Continuing education should be about truly expanding our knowledge and skills, not just checking off boxes.

Wow, you hit the nail on the head! We need courses that actually engage us and keep us up-to-date with what's happening in our fields. It's time for a change!
