What is the CBA-CLE  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 Season Pass.  The homestudy formats included in the CLE Pass are Video-on-Demand and MP3 audio files available on the CBA-CLE website (anything that doesn’t need to be shipped). ELITE PASS holders are also able to attend Live Seminars, Live Webcasts, and Video Replays held at the CBA-CLE classroom for free and will receive a substantial discount on CBA-CLE off-site seminars held at area hotels or 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 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 notice from CBA-CLE that your CLE Pass is scheduled for renewal.

Can I cancel my CBA-CLE Pass?
No. The contract term is for 12 months and all sales are final. There will be no full or partial refunds.

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.

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.

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