I am trying to register for an account, but when I do, I receive an error message that says "Username Exists" and I cannot go any further. How do I complete the registration process?
This error message means that another user has already registered using the username you are trying to create. We suggest creating a more unique username. For example, if John Doe wants to register as a new user, do not enter in a username of John or jdoe; use something that is more unique like jdoe385.
I am trying to register for an account, but when I do, I receive an error message that says "Email Exists" and I cannot go any further. How do I complete the registration process?
This error message means that another user has already registered using this same email address. If this was you, please use the "Password Reset" function on the login page and your login credentials will be reset and emailed to you. Note: If you have registered on MaxKnowledge or any of the other partner sites, you do not need to register again. Please use the same login credentials.
My password was reset, and now I want to update it to personalize it. How do I do that?
Once logged in, click on "My Site" in the upper right corner, and then click on "Account Settings." Enter the new password you would like to create under "Password" and then again under "Confirm Password," and then click on "Update" to save. The next time you login, use the new password that you selected.
I am trying to reset my password but when I tried to retrieve it, the system said "No such email address exists." What should I do?
If you receive this message, it means that the system is unable to reset your password because the email address you entered is not in our system. Check that you have entered your email address correctly (i.e. there are no typographical errors). If you still receive this error message, this email address has not been used to register a profile in our system.
Enrollment Key Purchasers
I am trying to make a purchase, but I keep receiving an error message that says: "Error Code 2." How do I resolve this?
Typically, the error code message "Error Code 2" indicates there is a problem with the credit card issuer. They may have blocked the transaction, prevented the transaction from being authorized, or there could be insufficient funds to cover the transaction amount. Our recommendation is to contact your credit card company to see why the transaction was blocked and then try to complete the transaction again.
When and how will I receive the keys I purchased via a check?
Once a check is received in our office, two emails are sent to the address entered on the purchase form. The first email is a receipt for the transaction, and the second one lists the information pertaining to the keys. The keys will also be visible in your Key Panel, which you can access once logged in by clicking on "My Site" and then using the dropdown to select "Key Panel." Note: To see your keys in your Key Panel, the email address entered into the purchase transaction must match the email address in your profile.
I lost my receipt. How can I obtain another copy of it?
You can view all receipts once logged in by viewing your Key Panel, which you can access by clicking on "My Site" and then using the dropdown to select "Key Panel." Then click on the "Purchases" tab to see the receipts for all your transactions. Note: To see your keys in your Key Panel, the email address entered into the purchase transaction must match the email address in your profile.
Where can I find the keys that I purchased?
Once logged in, please click on "My Site" (in the upper right corner) and use the dropdown to select "Key Panel." Your Key Panel allows you to view your enrollment keys and assign unused keys to others. In addition, you can monitor the usage of your keys and track activities and certificates.
The keys I purchased are not appearing in my Key Panel. How can I access them?
Please check the receipt that was emailed to you and ensure that the email address entered into the purchase transaction is the same one you have in your profile, as these must match exactly. (If you are not sure what email address is tied to your profile, once logged in, click on "My Site" in the upper right corner and choose "Account Settings.")
How do I assign keys to my team?
Once logged in, please visit your Key Panel. You can access your Key Panel by clicking on "My Site" and then using the dropdown to select "Key Panel."

To assign a key(s) to your team members, simply click on the "Assignments" tab within your Key Panel and enter in the email address of the person you wish to assign a key to, and the number of keys you wish to assign. They will then receive an email letting them know you have assigned them a key(s). PLEASE NOTE that enrollment keys can be used to access any of the online courses. If there is a specific course that you wish for someone to take, please let them know.
