Frequently Asked Questions

How do I attend a live event online?
Each month we will send out reminders and notifications by email, for the upcoming live presentations. If you would like to attend you will need to purchase the individual course that will give you access to the evaluation and learning assessment, which will trigger your certificate. After your purchase, you will be given a special link that allows you to register for the live event itself. A live event online counts the same as an in-person event (according to the New York State Office of Professions), because the presenters are available to answer questions in real time. If you belong to our membership program, on a monthly basis, you will receive a direct link that allows you to join the live presentations for free. So keep an eye on your email!
How will I receive the certificate?
Certificates are automatically generated when you complete a webform, after you have taken an online assessment and course evaluation. It will be sent to the email you used to enroll in the program.
