Provider Responsibilities: Items A, B and C

Request PCAM Access: Steps 1-4

STEP 1:

Go to our Contact Us page and Send Us a Message. If you've never messaged us via our website, you create an account first. (This is not a PCAM account.) Include these three items:

  • A short statement: The provider understands Item A (course requirements and provider responsibilities), Item B (PCAM access and usage, both contact persons viewed all video tutorials) and Item C (late fee and 60-day application deadline).
  • Full name of the course provider requesting PCAM registration and all other names used by that entity in the last five years.
  • Two to three sentences that describe:
    • types of CLE courses and topics the provider has presented or plans to;
    • intended audience (e.g., organization's own attorneys, open to all attorneys, invitation only, etc.); and
    • number of course applications that the provider expects to submit each year.
STEP 2:

An MCLE Board staff member reviews your entry and checks our records for previous contact. He/she may access public information or request more information from you. If we don’t find any issues, we email you a link to the PCAM online registration form.

STEP 3:

Click the link and complete the brief online registration form. Include a primary and secondary contact person with separate phone numbers and email addresses. Click "Submit" at the bottom. We review the registration in 4-5 business days.

STEP 4:

If your registration is approved, we e-mail your PCAM log-in credentials (check your spam filter if you don't see our email in one week). Log-in to submit applications and pay fees.
