Frequently Asked Questions

What is an Enrollment Key and how do I use it?

An Enrollment Key is a credential that allows you to be granted access to and automatically enrolled in specific content, which can be found under "My Courses".

There are three methods to redeem an enrollment key:

  • New User with an Enrollment Key URL: If you have been given a Direct Link URL then you will select this link and follow the directions to make a new account. The content associated with the enrollment key will appear under "My Courses" when you log in.
  • New User with an Enrollment Key Name: If you do not have a Direct Link URL and rather have an Enrollment Key name. Create an account through the sign-up button. Once logged in, click on the tile named "Enrollment Key" on your homepage Learner Dashboard. Enter the enrollment key name, then click "Enroll". The content associated with this key can now be found under "My Courses".
  • All Existing Users: Log into your account and click on the tile named "Enrollment Key" on your homepage Learner Dashboard. Enter the enrollment key name, then click "Enroll". The content associated with this key can now be found under "My Courses".

How do I access my certificates?

When you log into your account, you will be taken to the home page Learner Dashboard. Select the tile "Transcript". Here you will find a record of all the courses you've completed as well as your certificates and total credits. Certificates and transcripts can be downloaded and printed. You can also find your certificate inside any completed curriculums.

How do I find a course?

There are multiple ways to find a course. From the homepage, select the tile "Catalog" and then select a category. From there, you will be able to explore courses and curricula. Remember that a curriculum contains multiple related courses. For example, if you are looking for an installation and wiring guide for the PS10, that would be grouped under the PS10 curriculum. Another method is to use the search feature, indicated by a magnifying glass at the upper right. Once you have found a course you are interested in, click "enroll". You can then immediately take the course by selecting start or return to this course later under "My Courses".

How do I earn CEUs?

Potter provides CEUs for all Sprinkler and Corrosion curriculums, as well as the AFC & IPA series of Fire Alarm Control Panels. For each CEU, select "Catalog" and then "Sprinkler and Corrosion" or "Fire Alarm." From here, click the funnel with a plus sign in the upper left corner of the screen. You will now be able to filter the content and view all curriculums. Select "Enroll" for the curriculums that you wish to take. You can then immediately take the course by pressing "Start" or save for later. Courses that have been enrolled in can be found under "My Courses" on the home page. All additional classes that do not have an assigned CEU value are applicable as "informal training" as defined by NICET.
