How does one go about becoming a continuing legal education (CLE) or CE provider in the US and Canada?

I have developed a number of educational materials and books. Recently, it has come to my attention that many of the people purchasing my materials are lawyers. Still others are members of professional organizations that require professional education. Some of my clients have suggested I get into providing CLE seminars or materials. Others have suggested I look at general continuing education for other professions.
I would like to start with whatever would provide the biggest bang for my buck. I suspect that might mean CLE, but I am open to ideas. Without going into specifics and revealing my identity, suffice it to say that I have arrange of books and educational materials for professional services providers. I have tried looking into CLE but I wasn't really sure how it worked - there are so may states and provinces. And I've looked into CE, but, again, I'm not sure where to start. I see some organizations are seeking partners, but I have no idea who's legitimate.
One person told me they didn't think people got paid for offering CLE. But perhaps it would be a way to sell my other materials, if that is the case.
If it matters, I am in Canada. (That means I would have to offer distance course for people in the US, because of visa requirements.)
