I’m from a generation that is used to having multiple information platforms integrated. Having to return to an old system of digging up classes and then sending verification to a different party has become almost foreign. CE broker has facilitated not only made easy the renewal and transfer of credits to keep my license, but also the finding of classes That I was missing. The one thing I have yet to use is transferring credits I received through my job into CE Broker, I hope that works just as well.
I am licensed in 2 states. I selected the professional upgrade thinking that I would be able to apply my credits to both licenses with the one entry (like I can on other CE recording sites). Sadly, this is not the case. Wasted my money upgrading because I have to enter my CE courses separately to each license. The paid upgrade basically keeps a running tally of my credits, but I can do that for myself for free! I had 2 years worth of courses already recorded on the site because one of the states required it. When my second state subsequently required the use of CE Broker I thought I would be able to just attach my 2nd license # to what was already in my profile. That was not possible. I had to manually re-enter all those credits to my 2nd license. Hopefully CE Broker will work on a software update to accomplish this in the future.
I am trying to renew my FL licensure and I’ve had nothing but issues with this software. I have completed all of my course requirements but the tracking of my CEUs is going to the wrong treatment cycle so it continues to show an incomplete status. I have asked for this to be resolved and I keep getting told : “IT is diligently working on this.” It has been one week with no change. I am trying to coordinate my move back to FL and this is my only hold up to receiving my license. My employer cannot give me a written offer until this is done. I pay for a PRO account and was told this helps speed a long the process of IT resolution. Obviously this is not happening. Why is CEbroker partnering with the FL department of health when their IT department cannot handle this issue swiftly. I am extremely disappointed and frustrated with this service and lack of insight into why it can’t be fixed. Unacceptable.
I have used cebroker for 10 years and the reasons why I paid for the service was that I just want extra eye to ensure I am meeting all the requirement to renew my license. But I don’t use their services much because all I do is go in and input my Ceu and that is it. I buy their service so I think I can sleep well at night without worry if I missed any Ceu because all I have to do is go to the page under current year and see how many Ceu I need. But recently there is a mandatory Ceu requirement for all health providers in Florida to fulfill for human trafficking, it was already start at July 2019. I didn’t even knew this until I got email from state of Florida which is good I catch it. But since this was requirement for All health care providers, then why Cebroker did not take time to show that on my renew pages! This is horrible, the most important reason I paid for the service is to avoid this kind of thing but yet the ce broker never show that. Even until this moment. They show it under course finder but I don’t always use that. However I always do the complete page to see how much more Ceu I need and what time. This is horrible because that was the point I got this service!
The app is missing some features, is touchy and does not work like the website. -When logging in it asks for password or email but when you log in with your email you get an error. - you cannot copy and paste info into the text boxes making it inconvenient. - when a ceu that you entered shows it has an error or missing info it does not give you a way to correct it other than just adding all the info in again as a separate document. When adding in the certificates on the website it lets you use pdf’s but on the app you either have to use a photo of the certificate. This is should be an option because some people do there ceu’s online and download a pdf not a photo.
The concierge service that CE Broker offers is wonderful. I have used it for several years and for less than $10 per month, it is money well spent. CE Broker will keep track of everything for you, such as which required courses you must take this cycle, how many credits you need, when are the deadlines, etc., etc. And then if you need help, their customer service representatives are very pleasant to talk to. A win-win no matter how you look at it.
I have been using CE Broker basic software for approximately 3 years at this point. It is a fabulous software for tracking physician’s CME credits throughout the Biennial time frame. It also indicates the number and category of CME credits for that particular licensing period. In addition the iPhone app allows a quick photo and immediate upload of any CME credit/document/letter of participation. I highly recommend this software without hesitation.

CE-Broker does what it’s supposed to & it’s easier than uploading CEUs via desktop, but it is also a monopolistic solution to a manufacturered problem. I would assume there was a shady backroom deal somewhere that made a lot of people a lot of money with they came up with this scam. CE-Broker staff are less than helpful & do not have a good relationships with the state agencies their service, furthermore, you HAVE to use their service & their are no competitors to said service. Then, to add injury to insult they want you to pay them for basic information that should be readily available — ridiculous. Kind of reminds me of how how the video game industry hides content behind pay walls & they are on the verge of being federally regulated — kinda funny 🤷🏼♀️.
This app is basic and does not always function or respond well in a timely manner. It is unfortunate that the State of Ohio offers this as the only format to track and submit CEU’s for social workers without choice. This assumes all have easy access to the resource to maintain technologies financially when we are a grossly underpaid profession and also assumes all of those in aging populations can interface well with this resource. The use of this resource feels opposite to the foundations of our profession. To top it off with having to pay yearly for a subscription to see how our data is collected is just wrong....such a monopoly to have no other options. Disappointed.
I really like the idea behind this app. It’s convenient to be able to document CEU courses from an app and I love that you can take a picture of the CEU certificate. My biggest issue is that the app crashes a lot when trying to save a course. I’ve received a lot of errors and then have to go back at a later time and try it again. Sometimes it does actually end up saving after an error message but it just seems extremely glitchy. If they could fix these issues it would be a 5 star app.
The app is on the way to making this very user-friendly and easy. Utilizing an iPhone I am unable to adjust the date completed, and every CME shows the same completion date. Please continue to work on this app to make this process easy but it still needs just a little more work.
Two subscribed to CE broker pro, it cost almost as much for two years as it does for licensure renewal. In order to renew your license sure you must have your CE use reported to CE broker, however unless you subscribe to the pro it is difficult to track your units at times, especially when you are reliant upon outside CEU providers to submit your course credits. I found that trying to submit my course units on my own, when my provider failed to do so, was quite cumbersome.
Perfect way to track your educational requirements!
I wouldn’t have it any other way-this takes all the stress away being able to know what you need to do to complete all requirements needed, submit your courses completed, and also search for applicable courses available that you need.
Great app! Easy tracking of continuing education credits.
This app makes tracking CEU’s incredibly easy. It’s always a good idea to keep your paper certificates but with this app, you could lose them and still be covered. It made renewing my license super easy and I can’t imagine you’d get audited if this app shows you’ve completed everything.
Besides using the app to check, update or add CE courses for credit, I have used the chat option to converse with support staff. The issue was remedied quickly and professionally. I highly recommend this app to any one in the allied health sciences. It is easy to use and the website laid out in a manner that everything is easy to find.
I’ve had this app for years and there’s ALWAYS a problem. For a long time the problem was loading your transcripts. You had to close the app and reopen it many times to get your transcript to load or sometimes you would have to delete the app and then reinstall it for the transcripts to work. Now the problem is when I try to report CE’s and press “Accept and continue” the app freezes and then eventually shuts down. I have the concierge service that I pay $99 a year for and I expect that it works when I need it. This is so frustrating.
I have been using CE Broker for several years now and nothing beats it. Simply put, to be able to conglomerate your CME’s, know exactly what mandatory CME’s need be completed, tabulate CME’s where they are easily recognized and transferred by your state licensing authority, is simply golden. Have not had any troubles and I have never had to upgrade to the concierge service to receive the essentials. 👍
I need to delete and get new version as I have been told the newer versions takes care of the few problems I have had. Like how you can view the courses you have entered and they let you know when you have completed the required courses for license renewal!
I have enjoyed using the ce broker app to track of my CEUs. It is easy to navigate and if a CE opportunity comes up, I can quickly check to see how many hours I may need and under which category they need to fall. It keeps me organized, which is something I always need help with.
I am glad to have CE Broker because of the convenience of having not only the government (Health Dept) linked to receive my CEUs so I don’t have to call them and report but the various and sometimes many different institutions of learning report CEUs directly to them. So, I’m grateful and pleased to this company for existing to make a licensee’s life easier. Rhoda🤗🌺
I have been a nurse for 30 years, and with all these new requirements alternating years, I no longer have to worry what needs to be done. CE broker does the work for me, making sure I am updated on everything required to keep my License up to date.
A good CEU hours record tool that has worked for me the past 4 years. A little cumbersome to enter data of each certificate , but CE Broker keeps the record well and occasionally the CEU hours I complete in the CEDirect website cross over and I do not have to enter anything. Thank you for the free service you offer still.
The people at CEBroker are very kind and helpful. There are so many required courses now for the RN renewal that I can’t keep up. Thankfully CEBroker can figure it all out. I realize it’s mostly computer but they actually answer their phones. Thank you CEBroker for another smooth license renewal .
This is more a rating of CE Broker than the app itself. I’ve started the process 3 times and finally have a few trainings entered. I have to use the app because I don’t have the certificates in any other electronic form besides photos on my phone. Using my phone to do all that typing is annoying and mistakes are made. I’ve been waiting at least 25 minutes for a phone response from the help desk. Here’s what would help...make it so I can enter the verbiage on my computer and add the photo from my phone later. Explain where to find things (line the date, all the different approval types ahead of time. And explain how to split a training that has ethics/supervision combined w other hours.
This is a very easy to use app for tracking and submitting CME activity. The app is uncluttered and does not require a course to instruct you in its use. It is very self explanatory and intuitive. Nice to be able to easily go from app to desktop site.
I love the app as I can access anytime and keep track of what I need to complete to keep my license active; however, almost every single time I try log in I have to delete and re add the app for it to recognize I am already active professional member. It is extremely frustrating.
Easy to track needed CE’s. Easy to choose classes-many classes available to choose from. The app is super user friendly, though I’ve encountered an error where if I try to manually report a CE I can only get so far before the app times out. Great app though it’s really convenient to have this ready whenever I need to check it.
I’ve had the basic account on this app because my state required me to use it to report my CEUs. EVERY time I go to use it, it won’t log me in, the screen freezes, and numerous times I’ve had courses show up that I have never taken or submitted CEUs for. I don’t have trouble using the desktop version but the app still needs a lot of bugs worked out in my opinion. Until the basic version works well for me, I will not pay to use it.
This app is amazing!! It saves so much time and stress when it comes to tracking CEU’s. I have been audited every year! That’s when I decided to pay for CE Broker. No more stress over adding up CEU’s knowing what will/won’t roll over and if I have needed Ethics. I just add information take a picture and hit submit, CE Broker does the rest!! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!
Does not capture the CEs automatically. Had to manually fill in all my recent activities. Is a waste of money if the service they say they provide is not fulfilled. Unfortunately the state of Fl offers no other alternative.
The CE Broker app is crap. Every time I try to upload a course under the proper category, such as human trafficking, the app crashes. The only way I can get my CE to post is by trying several different other categories. The site really pushes the paid version of CE Broker, even though the free version is supposed to work and CE Broker is the only allowed way to post CE in Florida. It seems it is made incredibly UNuser friendly on purpose, just so I have to pay someone to do something I should be able to do myself for free.
For an app that is designed for the sole purpose of tracking CEs, it is extremely difficult and time consuming when each individual screen buffers for several minutes. It took over 1.5 hours to report roughly 6 trainings. Not user friendly and not functional.
Doesn’t even track licensure in my state (Ohio). But instead of just displaying this information in-app, I had to contact the developer to find out why. No mention of this limitation on App Store page. How about a list of ineligible states, guys? Or at least a dialogue in-app when you search for your license that says your state is not supported, instead of generic “license not found”???
Why won’t this app recognize my user name and password? I have an account with ce broker and have had one for several years now. I can’t use the app to do anything. I have to login on my phone browser to access it.. so annoying!! I’ve tried to delete the app and redone load it but the same thing keeps happening for over 2 months. I used to be able to login to the app but one day it just cut me off and won’t let me get into it again. I just wish it would work again!!
A lot of the time having issues logging in, submitting ideas, and or having issues seeing CEU per licensing period since not broke up separate. Typing this out now with no words showing up so I guess we will see if something shows up or not. To many app issues
This app continues to crash when reporting CEs, which is the only reason I downloaded (ease of reporting). I have contacted customer service x2 with no response or resolution of the issue. Looks like app was last updated a year ago. Better off forgoing the app and just report using website, although it’s a pain to use on mobile. Looks like they don’t care to upkeep the app.
I have had a lot of problems with this app. I get kicked out a lot. Twice I have entered my education info to be told I timed out after entering everything. So, I did it all again and then it showed up twice! It would be nice to have an edit function and to be able to go back and see your certificates that you uploaded.
Format doesn’t fit iPhone well (if on mobile, date for CE appears PARTIALLY at the bottom R corner and is hard to select to change the date). Confusing to submit CEs. Says I am missing hours from previous year when I am not. Cannot view previous years from mobile app. Hoping it will be better in the future.
I have two licenses and I had to make two separate accounts to check my CE hours for both. If I could look at both licenses simultaneously that would be great! For now I’ll just go between accounts, but so far that’s my only complaint.
The issue with the transcript tab is frustrating and I’m not the only one who has complained about it, so I’m not sure this has not been fixed. I would increase my rating if this issue was fixed, however until then I will not be renewing my paid account. Too bad my state contracts through CE Broker only. The online site works fine, the app should as well.
It’s okay overall, but there’s a glitch where you can’t really see to select the date of the CE class and you just have to blindly tap the bottom right corner and hope the calendar pops up. It took me several times for it to go through.
Disappointed I cannot correct an entry error. I have to delete the whole thing and start over. Opened the app today and my history appeared to be the history of another professional. I am a Social worker the history in my app belonged to a speech pathologist.
For 20 years I have kept an spreadsheet to track my CEUs and a folder to keep all of the certificates. This app makes my life so much easier by tracking all of this for me! I love it! Worth every penny!
It’s very nice that you can take a class and you don’t have to worry about the certificate not getting to CE Broker. Thank you for the seamlessness. It’s one more thing that I don’t have to worry about.
Keeps me on track with the mandatories and what I still need. To me, well worth the $ to be able to look at a glance. License renewal in April and I will generally be done with everything I need by the end of August. No more guessing.
Access to camera roll in the iOS app is not user friendly. Had images overlapped & not in order at all. This could be significantly improved Would also be nice for auto text to complete phrases for course & provider like it does on the internet
This is an easy-to-use app that allows you to quickly add CE courses and tracks your progress over time. Occasionally, there are some glitches, but for the most part it's simple helpful and reliable. And also very easy to understand.
