To join the webinar:
A webinar is a training or presentation broadcasted via the internet. In a webinar, each participant sits at his or her computer and is connected to other participants through the Adobe Connect program. The webinar will require a headset or speakers to listen to the audio while viewing the session.
Attendees are required to have an internet download speed of greater than 256 kbps to successfully view the webinar. To test your internet connection speed, please click on the following link: www.speedtest.net. UND Conference Services Webinars are conducted using Adobe Connect online collaboration software. A computer (Mac or PC) with an internet connection and computer speakers or a headset are required. For optimal meeting performance, Adobe Connect™ strongly advises not using wireless (WiFi) Internet connections.
After registering for the webinar, you will receive confirmation of your registration. Any handouts and/or workbook available at the Institute will be mailed to you on November 6 so you have access to view all participant materials.

As part of NASBA requirements, we will be polling webinar participants at regular and frequent intervals throughout the day.

The questions do not need to be answered correctly to receive credit.
Failure to answer the polling question will result in loss of CEU credit for that portion of the Institute.
Your Continuing Education certificate will be emailed to you after completion of the webinar. Please allow 10 business days for processing.
Please note - the webinar is streamed live from the Institute and is ONLY available during this time. The webinar will not be recorded to view at a later date.

Travel arrangements and accommodations are the sole responsibility of the participants. The University of North Dakota will take all reasonable steps to notify you in advance if a scheduled event will need to be postponed or cancelled. The e-mail address you supplied during registration will be used to notify you of the cancellation. Unfortunately, however, the University is unable to reimburse participant travel expenses, fees, or change penalties in the unlikely event of a postponement. For this reason, you are strongly encouraged to make your travel arrangements refundable whenever possible. The University also reminds you to provide your most current contact information, and keep it up-to-date at all times.
