CVT maintenance schedule

Hey everyone, newbie to the board and soon to be first time Honda owner here. I will soon be picking up a white pearl / black 2013 Sport with the CVT. I was wondering if anyone knew what the scheduled maintenance was like for the 2013 CVT transmissions? I'm curious if they are similar to typical auto transmissions that require scheduled fluid and filter changes and if it could be easily done by dropping the tranny oil pan (if they even have one). I was also curious to what the owners manual states the service intervals should be for this transmission. This just crossed my mind last night and I never got to ask the dealer. Any help is appreciated!

Transmission Fluid

4-cylinder models with automatic transmission (CVT)

■Continuously Variable Transmission (CVT) Fluid

Specified fluid: HCF-2

Have a dealer check the fluid level and replace if necessary.

Code 3 on the Maintenance Minder has this subnote.
Maybe normal is 50,000. But that is just a theory.

Driving in mountainous areas at very low vehicle speeds or trailer towing results in higher transmission temperatures. This requires transmission fluid changes more frequently than recommended by the Maintenance Minder. If you regularly drive your vehicle under these conditions, have the transmission fluid changed every 25,000 miles (40,000 km).
