How do I get verification of my attendance for the credits that I received through AudiosolutionZ.com?
Attendance Reporting Procedure: When watching the course, make sure to listen for the verification codes spoken at some point during the course. This verification code(s) will also be shown as a PDF slide. Submit a New York Attorney Affirmation Form for EACH course you are submitting for credit, complete the information requested, including the verification codes. These codes will not be in the materials included with the program. AudiosolutionZ will provide New York certificates of attendance to attorneys after verifying their participation. Attorneys must retain these certificates for four years after the program and certify completion of CLE requirements each reporting period. AudiosolutionZ will not send these certificates of attendance to the New York board.
How do I report my credits to New York State?
An attorney registration form will be mailed to you by New York State. You must file your attorney registration form and complete your CLE requirement within 30 days after your birthday on alternate years. All attorneys must certify, at the time of their biennial registration, that they have satisfactorily completed their CLE requirement for that reporting cycle and that they have retained the proper documentation. If, when you register, you have completed your required CLE credits but have not received all of your certificates of attendance, you may edit the relevant sentence on the attorney registration form to indicate that you are "awaiting documentation" of your compliance.
