ADEC webinars include a live presentation over the telephone or VoIP (audio over the computer), with accompanying handouts online. They provide the educational value of a conference session, without the hassle and expense of travel. A live webinar also provides the opportunity to interact with the presenter during the question and answer period. Each ADEC webinar is worth 1.5 CE credits (unless otherwise specified).
Bring your entire team to the table and learn during the live presentation, for one low price.* Those participating with you at your location can also earn credit for viewing the webinar by purchasing credits for $25.
Can't make the regularly scheduled time? Purchase a webinar recording instead; watch and listen at a time that's convenient for you. You'll still earn continuing education credits with the recorded version.
* One registration is intended for one site-use only and cannot be shared outside of your location unless you have purchased an institutional subscription.
