What is the CBA-CLE Basic and Elite Pass?

CBA-CLE offers two Pass options: BASIC and ELITE. The CLE Pass is a subscription service that allows each Registered Purchaser unlimited access to any recorded seminar produced by CBA-CLE during the term of the Pass. The homestudy formats included in the CLE Pass are Video-on-Demand and MP3 audio files. Electronic PDF course materials are also available.
ELITE PASS holders are also able to attend Live Seminars, Live Webcasts, and Video Replays held at the CBA-CLE classroom; some exclusions apply, including teleseminars and designated third-party seminars and for-fee speaker seminars held at the CBA-CLE Classroom. Special program prices may be offered to ELITE CLE Pass Holders for these excluded on-site seminars. ELITE Pass holders are also eligible to receive a substantial discount for designated off-site seminars and CBA-CLE Institutes held at area hotels and mountain resorts. BASIC Pass holders are eligible for special prices on selected Live Seminars, Live Webcasts, and Video Replays held at the CBA-CLE Classroom held throughout the year.


Why Should I get a CBA-CLE Pass?

CLE Pass Holders receive unlimited online access to the best catalog of CLE seminars in Colorado, all at a fraction of what you would normally pay! You not only receive all the CLE credits you need to satisfy your compliance requirements, but you don’t have to miss any programs with the CLE Pass. It’s more than just credits—it’s sharpening your skills and getting critical updates to new laws and legislation.


How long does the CBA-CLE Pass run?

Your subscription to the CBA-CLE Pass runs from the date of subscription for 12 months. You will receive a renewal notice for your Pass before it expires.


Can I cancel my CBA-CLE Pass?

How is the CBA-CLE Pass different than those offered by other providers?

Many pass or bundle products restrict the number of credits and seminars that are included, and most also rely primarily on non-Colorado specific content. The CBA-CLE Pass has none of these limitations. Both the BASIC and ELITE CBA-CLE Pass allow UNLIMITED ACCESS to ANY online homestudy course in Video-on-Demand or MP3 format. The CBA-CLE ELITE Pass is also unique in that it includes free access to attend CBA-CLE Live Events, Live Webcasts, and Video Replays held at the CBA-CLE Classroom. Finally, with the CBA-CLE Passes, you know you are getting quality CBA-CLE programming with a focus on Colorado law and practice provided by the dedicated and experienced Colorado lawyers and professionals.

Can I take a portion of an online seminars?

Yes, you can fit CLE into your busy schedule! Many CBA-CLE homestudy seminars are portions of a full course. With the CBA-CLE Pass, if you’re interested in just a specific portion of a program, you simply watch only the part that interests you. No commitment for full price, no commitment of a specific block of time. You view only those programs of interest to you on your own schedule.


Is the CBA-CLE Pass transferable?

No. The CBA-CLE Season Pass is non-transferable.


May I simply register at the door for a live seminar if I didn't pre-register?

We encourage Season Pass Purchasers to pre-register to ensure enough space and course materials are available for all attendees.
