Some Things Seem To Be More Difficult Than They Actually Are
When reporting your course completion data to CAPCE,
you have two sets of options. The first set of options
are the options CAPCE provides free of charge. They assume
a certain basic level of technical expertise and understanding
of the CAPCE audit and reporting processes. They are:
Manual Entry -
manually entering the records one-at-a-time
into the CAPCE system. This option is the
simplest, but it is also the most labor intensive.
It requires no programming sophistication or
knowledge of the CAPCE program API, since it leads
you through the process for each record. The
disadvantage is that it is a manual process
which requires you enter each record. It is not
recommended for large numbers of records.
XML Upload -
convert your conference data to an XML document
which conforms to the CAPCE XML Schema, and
upload it into the CAPCE system. This process
requires you have read and are familiar with the
Provider Manual and Provider Technical Manual and
have sufficient technical skills to create and
validate an XML document and ensure the data will
pass Audit, then upload the data into the CAPCE
System via its XML Upload application found in the
Providers Only area of the CAPCE Web Site.
Real Time Reporting API -
create a web service client that reads your data
into the CAPCE System via the Real Time Reporting
Web Service. This option requires sufficient
programming knowledge to create a web service client
that will validate your data to CAPCE'S audit
requirements, and send the records to CAPCE via
its Real Time Reporting Service.
If you have the software and expertise available within your
organization, one of the three options above will fit your needs.
The Alternative Solution:
If you do not have either the software or the expertise to handle
the task within your organization your options are:
If you are maintaining the required data (requirements may be found in the CAPCE
Provider and Technical manuals found in its
Providers Only Area
) and are able to export your data to a Microsoft Excel, Xml,
or CSV file, all you need do is send us the file you'd like us to process.
We test your data for CAPCE compliance and our unique auditing service pre-audits
your data to ensure an accurate report free of errors is made every time. Our hourly
rate for this service is $120.00/hr, one hour minimum.
You may have already purchased an expensive Learning Management System to deliver
and track your course material, and you love it...or maybe not. Either way, it's a
shock to find your system doesn't have any way of reporting to CAPCE. Believe it or
not, you are not alone. However, In most cases you can export your data to CSV,
XML, or Excel, and if you're keeping all the required data, we can help with the rest of
the process. Click here to contact us and get started.
If you would rather handle the reporting yourself, purchase software
("CAPCE Reporting", available for $1800.00 here) which
handles the conversion and upload of your XML, Excel, or CSV data.
This service is available for the purchase price of the software,
and requires little knowledge or technical expertise with the exception
of having to create your XML, Excel, or CSV document with the proper
column headings/Field Names, which the program will then analyze,
audit, and if compliant, upload. Contact Us
to get started today!
If you need help, but don't want to use the reporting service, and don't want to
purchase the software, consulting services/support is billed at $120.00 per hour with
a one hour minimum. This includes a review of your file and an automated audit of your
data. Issues are usually resolved in under an hour. If you'd just like to find out what's
wrong with your file, this is the least expensive way to go. Click here
