Can more than one person use the courses?

I understand that auto-reporting is available for my CE hours. How does that work?
Once you have completed the course and passed the associated quiz, use the Action dropdown button next the completed course and select Report hours to GBCI/AIA automatically.
You will need to have your GBCI and/or AIA member numbers ready.
The GBCI member number is 8 digits long, and can be found in your USGBC account, under Credentials Overview.
The AIA number is 10 digits long, begins with a 3, and can be found in your AIA account.

For your convenience, GBES will also report the hours to AIA on your behalf. Simply use the Action dropdown button next the course once you’ve passed the quiz.
