After completing a CE/CME accredited course, when will my benchmarks update?

Our benchmark updating process takes about a week to complete. You will see your updated benchmarks usually on Monday, the week after you’ve completed a course or collection.

My licensure requires that I take continuing education courses that are certified by an accrediting body that is not listed.

Right now the Violet platform doesn’t have the functionality to allow searching by a specific accrediting body, such as the NBCC. If your profession is not listed, the professional body in your state may still accept one of the listed accreditations. We’re happy to assist you in confirming this. Additionally, you have access to third-party accredited education through Violet, which we’ve vetted for quality. Some of these courses likely meet the requirements of your licensure and we are happy to help you locate them. Just email us at

When does the certification arrive?

When you complete a Violet collection, you’ll be prompted to evaluate the course by answering a few short questions. Once this is complete, you’ll select which professional group you’re a part of. Then you’ll see the option to print your certificate. You can always print the certification at a later time by navigating to the Education page through your dashboard.

If you complete a 3rd party accredited course through Violet’s platform, your certificate will have to be obtained through the 3rd party. In addition, you’ll have to add this to your experience on your profile to have it count toward your benchmarks.
