Duplicate CPEs from BrightTALK

Has anyone else seen duplicate CPEs automatically reported from BrightTALK webinars? This appears to happen if I go and view a webinar I have viewed before, even if it's just a few seconds.

 

Actually, I have seen automatically reported duplicates for quite a while, but I was able to delete them. I can't seem to do that anymore. So I have had to resort to asking ISC2 to delete them for me, which seems to take a while.

 

I would suggest:

 

1) It sure would be nice if ISC2 and/or BrightTALK fixed that.

2) It would be nice if we had the ability to delete duplicates ourselves again.

3) Check your transcript for duplicate entries. I would be nervous depending on the total count on your dashboard. It might be inflated.

I haven't seen this issue. What I have noticed is if I watch a stream of a previous BrightTalk webinar, and opt to stream it at 1.5x speed, I will only receive a cert with 40 mins CPE. Not cool.

I think Member Support needs to take a look at your account. Can you please send an email with these details regarding duplication along with your member ID number to membersupport@isc2.org?

 

Thank you!

I am somewhat surprised that someone thought to program that in.   As implemented it does match the rule --  "Typically, you will earn one CPE credit per one-hour time spent in an activity." [CPE handbook, page 9].  That said, the enforcement is not bidirectional.  Often times, I will rewind to listen to a section again, but I don't get "extra credit" for that (nor would I expect to).

I spend a lot of time listening to podcasts at 1.5x (and more often at 2x); I understand there are those who could possibly abuse the effort to listen faster, but that’s no reason to deny others.

Already done and most duplicates have been deleted. Unfortunately, another turned up after I sent the first email. I've followed up with another email to get this last one (I hope) taken care of.

I don't seem to have a problem with rewinding and pausing. I think the issue is completing the first viewing, exiting, and then, at sometime later date, restarting. Restarting for any length of time will cause a duplicate CPE to be sent. Maybe it's just something wrong with my account? But I wouldn't think so. Looks like BrightTalk is sending credit for second viewings, and ISC2 isn't checking the history to see it's already been recorded for that particular video. I don't know the interface definition, so I don't know who is supposed to do what. Or maybe it wasn't something that was thought of.

 

I have sent requests for member support to fix things, and they have, mostly. Still have a couple dups to get fixed, but we're getting there.
