  2. Through the unique link provided for that session in the Whova app, you’ll be directed to the BJU Press Professional Development site. When you go there for the first time, you will be prompted to create a login.
  3. Once you’re logged in, complete the short quiz for the session using the code word you were given.
  4. View your certificate.
  5. Your certificate will be saved and can be viewed at any time on your professional development account.
  6. Complete the process for each session that you attend.
  7. When it’s time to renew your ACSI certification, send in your certificates to ACSI along with your online certification application.

Note:  Certificates for ACSI credits from the Exchange Conference 2021 must be created by August 9.
