Priority is also given to persons in Regions I & III (unless the webinar is a collaboration with other). Otherwise, participants are registered on a first-come, first-serve basis. The final list will be determined and confirmation letters with login information (and waiting list notices if applicable) will be sent three weeks prior to the webinar and the day before. If you do not receive either a confirmation letter or a waiting list notice, please call (800) 227-7537 ext. 247.
Webinar Starting Times
Registered participants should login ten minutes prior to the start time the day of their session. Please plan to be logged on for the start of the session, remain for the entire webinar, and complete the evaluation needed to receive a certificate.
Call STARNET at (800) 227-7537 ext. 247 to cancel. You may cancel your participation at any time, but try to provide at least 24 hours notice so that we may notify those on the waiting list of the opportunity to participate. Because of the popularity of these sessions, registrants who neglect to cancel will be given a lower priority for registration at future workshops.
