Using the SmartCode Education System
To use the system at a seminar, general session or specialty course, you must scan two QR codes. One QR code is on your conference badge. The second QR code will be in your conference notebook and cannot be scanned until the end of the session or the beginning of the next session.
Scan one of the QR codes (it does not matter which one you start with) using the QR code scanning app. You will see the SmartCode Education System Web page that confirms that you have scanned the first code. You will see the barcode scan symbol to let you know that you need to scan the second code:
1st Barcode Scan Successful, Now Scan 2nd Code
Once the second barcode is scanned, you will see a green check mark to confirm that your APC or specialty course education credits have been registered in the USPTA education system. You will also receive an email to your primary email address to confirm that your credits were registered.

Borrow a Smartphone
The USPTA SmartCode Education System is designed so that you can borrow a friend's smartphone to register your credits. The phone's owner can register his/her credits first by scanning the badge then session code. After confirmation, you can scan your codes to get credit as well.
