This course will be offered as a live interactive virtual conference. Login instructions along with the digital syllabus will be shared with attendees a week before the meeting. Included in your registration fee is access to the course recordings on demand (available within a week after the conference) for any sessions that you miss, available for up to 30 days post-course.

All registrants will receive a webinar log-in link the week of the course. You will enter your full name and email address to “log-in” and authenticate yourself. Once completed, you will have access to the conference, and the system will email you an individualized access link to join the webinar at any time. For the rest of the conference you will use this link to join the webinar each day and you will never need to log-in again. If you click on the link but the webinar hasn’t started yet you will be placed in a waiting room. Attendees will be admitted from the waiting room into the webinar once we begin. All of the live content is recorded and hosted on the course webpage for 30 days post course so you can review anything that you might have missed.
