Login to the Learning Center and locate the course. The course will be in one of two tabs on the center of your Dashboard. "In Progress" is for courses that you have started or have opened before, while "Not Started" is for courses that you registered for and have opened. Once you locate the course, open it (click on the picture or tile for the course). Look for the tab labeled "Additional References", and select it. All the handouts and reference materials are located under this tab.
In most cases, handouts will be posted 5 days before the date of the event. If they are not available at that time, the presenters will send an email notifying you when the handouts are available. If you have questions, contact WPS.GHA.Education@wpsic.com and include the following information:

Subject Line:
- Event name
- Event date

Body:
- Handouts unavailable
- Question or other information you are looking for
Not all courses have handouts or additional resources, so when no tab appears, there are no handouts for the event. The email you received is a reminder about an upcoming event you registered for and the wording indicates there may be handouts and how to find them. Unfortunately, this is standard wording and goes out for all events.
The information relevant to the course. This could include:
- Handouts
- Resources used to create the course
- References for additional information
- Exercises
The type of course will determine this.
- For live courses, including in-person events, teleconferences, and webinars, the Additional References are available for 10 days (day 1 is the day of the event) after the course, but no longer than 45 days after the course. If you would like to keep the resources longer than that, you will need to download and/or print them. Please note: many of the resources are from websites and you will be able to locate them outside of the Learning Center.

- On-demand courses do not expire. WPS GHA Provider Outreach and Education staff will review the information and if it is no longer valid, it will be removed from the Learning Center. There is not a set time frame for on-demand material remaining in the Learning Center.
All in-person cancellation requests must be sent to WPS.GHA.Education@wpsic.com prior to the date of the scheduled event. A full or partial refund may be issued based on contractual expenses we will incur. No refunds will be issued for cancellations received on or after the date of the event.

CEUs can be obtained from professional organizations. WPS GHA will provide a certificate of achievement once you successfully complete a course in the Learning Center. For a live event, this includes participation from start to finish of the live session. If a biography of the presenter is needed, visit the following WPS GHA website.
https://www.wpsgha.com/wps/portal/mac/site/training/guides-and-resources/wps-gha-poe-staff/
WPS GHA staff uses real-time on the certificates. The certificate will contain hours and minutes. It is up to the agency issuing Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to decide how many they will give a participant.
The bio of each presenter is available on the WPS GHA website. https://www.wpsgha.com/wps/portal/mac/site/training/guides-and-resources/wps-gha-poe-staff/
WPS GHA does not issue CEUs. We have contacted the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC), American Health Information Management Association (AHIMA), and the National Academy of Ambulance Compliance (NAAC) and they have agreed to accept our certificates.

For the organizations listed above and all other organizations, contact them about instructions on where to send the certificate or how to receive the CEUs based on the WPS GHA Certificate of Achievement.

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) – AAPC
- CEUs for CMS-sponsored teleconferences, webinars and workshops are accepted by the American Academy of Professional Coders (AAPC) at a rate of one CEU per hour. These CEUs may come from CMS or a Medicare Administrative Contractor (MAC). A certificate of attendance or completion with the CMS logo is necessary to show participation.

- To claim CEUs, attendees will enter certificate of completion information onto their CEU Tracker using the “No Index Number” option. A copy of the certificate does not need to be provided to AAPC unless the member is selected for verification purposes.

Continuing Education Credits (CECs) – Other Accrediting Organizations
- All other CECs are offered by different professional organizations. You will need to go to the individual association/organization to determine their requirements. If they happen to need a bio, please contact us at WPS.GHA.Education@wpsic.com.
Yes, all required modules must be completed.

Live Events
- All required modules must be completed within 10 days (day 1 is the day of the event) of the event. Once all modules are complete, you can go to Achievements and download the certificate.

On-Demand
- On-demand courses do not have set time frames for completing and the certificate is available until the event is inactivated. We recommend that you print the certificate as soon as possible, because Medicare changes frequently and WPS GHA may need to remove a course due to outdated information.
If a recording was made, our staff is committed to having it available within 30 days after the event. If you do not see a recording after 30 days, please contact us via WPS.GHA.Education@wpsic.com.
Yes, bookmarks are recommended. We recommend that you bookmark the catalog. (http://wpsghalearningcenter.com).
All comments and suggestions should be sent via email to WPS.GHA.Education@wpsic.com.
