How to Attend:
Join the program from your office or home using a computer with high-speed internet.  You may also access the programs via the GoToWebinar mobile app.  You may still ask questions during the recorded webinars. Attendees can submit a question by clicking the floating Question button in the bottom-right corner. After the session, APA will receive a list of questions submitted so that we can follow-up.

Please note that credit is only provided to registered attendees participating at their own computer and phone.  Simple instructions will be sent when you complete the registration process.  We receive a report that shows who watched the webinar and how long you were logged in to the GoToWebinar system.  You must use the unique link that is sent to you after registering with GoToWebinar. 

About an hour after the completion of each recorded webinar you will receive an email with a link to the evaluation and assessment for that module. You must complete the quiz and the evaluation within two weeks in order to receive credit.  We will upload credit to CPE monitor twice a month.  The evaluation asks a couple of questions related to the quiz so you will want to complete the evaluation last.

Non-Member Rate for Individual Modules: $35


Registration Details: The webinar registration is a two-part process.  First, you must register through the APA site.  You will receive a link in your confirmation email from APA to complete your registration on the GoToWebinar site.  The GoToWebinar registration only requires your name and email.
