I've completed all six webinars and correctly answered all quizzes and retrieved all six certificates. When can I expect my LEED with Specialty EBOM Accreditation?

Similar to MICHAEL Spinello, I may not have typed my name on all and on some I may have included a middle name that is not part of my registered name. Will that create a problem? If so how can I resolve it prior to the deadline, which is just a few hours away? Thanks
I just successfully completed all of my credits for BD+C. I inadvertently did not include the electronic signature on some of the submittal forms but received notification that I had successfully completed all credits. Will there be any issues with my receiving BD+C status by not electronically signing all forms? Thanks.
@ Karl, try the "click here for our system check" link under Technical Requirements on the right of the Help page to be sure you're using a compatible system & browser. The site seems to be optimized for Internet Explorer with latest plugins - hope that helps.
I've watched all of the BD+C webinars and was only able to take the exam on two of them to get my credit. The other ones when I finished watching the webinar i clicked on the credit tab and a link for the exam wasn't there it just had a button labeled submit credit. Once i clicked on that it just took me to my credits summary page and didn't show any of them as pending. With the deadline being tomorrow what will happen since there isn't a link to take the exam and the credit isn't showing up but it does show that I've watched the webinars.

As we are experiencing high demand on our systems in this last week of the offer, please allow a few weeks for the credits to populate in your credentials account. If you do not see your account updated with your credential at that time, please contact us.
