Why Choose Illumeo?

The CPE marketplace is competitive. With over 1,300 NASBA approved CPE providers it is a genuine struggle for most to find their place in the market. You may hear about the Variety of Courses, Quality Content, Unlimited Access, Best Pricing, Industry Leader, Value beyond just CPE Credits!! and more - it can be confusing to understand what actually makes for the best CPE learning experience. We are going to dig in on these claims and bring you some much needed insight.

Competing platforms offer umpteen subscription options based on the quantity of content that you get access to. The bigger the name, the higher the price.

Do users get real value with the higher prices? What's the difference between a $299 and a $799 subscription if both provide a minimum of 40 credit hours? Why limit learning options? To make money? Exactly.

If Illumeo can offer over 1500 on-demand courses and over 80 live webinars a year, cover all functional areas, award instant CPE credits, offer value added benefits like self-assessments, CPE Compliance Monitor, personalized development plan, all those course reviews and direct interaction with instructors, all with a decidedly mid-range price, isn't it the best value? We offer simplicity of access and undeniable value. One price and no hidden costs for our on-demand courses and live webinars.


How do you define the quality of a CPE provider? Tricky, to say the least. It's surprising to see that many platforms don't tell you when a course was last updated. Fewer still give the name or bio of their instructors. And almost none have human verified course reviews, restricted to only those who have paid for and completed the course(s). On second thought, maybe it is easy to understand the quality of your CPE platform, just look for these things. If a platform does not have them, chances are there is a very good reason for that.

Interactive Learninig interactive learning

Online learning is widely considered a one-way communication experience. Illumeo has redefined the concept of online learning allowing you to interact with our expert instructors. No other CPE provider gives you opportunity to consult with instructors, much less expert practitioners in their respective domains. Drop a query related to any course and our Illumeo instructor will get back to you within 48 hours. We go the extra mile to give our users an unmatched learning experience.

Real-Time Certificate Downloading

Time is a valuable asset. Some CPE platforms take time to provide CPE certificates, which may cause you to miss an important deadline. One leading platform takes 10 days, another emails their CPE certificates in 5 days, and still others are less than instant. At Illumeo, you can download your CPE Certificate right after passing your final exam.

Reviews Reviews

Course reviews help potential subscribers and users know about real-world experience with a course. User reviews are one of the fundamental quality criterion for defining course quality.
Illumeo pioneered human verified course review publishing.

Most platforms simply don't publish user ratings or written reviews. How about being a lot more transparent there like Illumeo?

Continuing Education is a lot more than just adding up training hours and CPE providers have a lot on their shoulders. Larger than life claims may boost sales figures but won't help a user's career development; something that we at Illumeo take very seriously. This is the reason why you see professional development support tools like self-assessment and development plan. No other competing platform offers such capabilities to their users.

Illumeo is the most transparent CPE platform; with verifiable reviews, instructor interaction, course enrollment counts, last course update placed on every course page - we have nothing to hide. Most importantly, we know our limitations; we are not yet a globally renowned brand but we are definitely knocking that door. Keep an eye!
