As part of our Professional Development Series, we offer certificate-based webcast courses designed to help policymakers and professionals in the areas of equal opportunity, compliance, and complaint investigations gain a better understanding of the requirements of applicable Federal civil rights laws.
Professional Development Series
Comments for our popular on-demand webcasts include “I thoroughly enjoyed them,” “extremely informative,” “outstanding,” “highly relevant,” and “very impressive.”
Because the webcasts are on-demand and certificate-based, they provide a convenient and inexpensive way to acquire and document training.
Participants also have access to download material used during the webcast at no additional charge.
Convenient. Watch the webcast of your choice at a time and place convenient to you. Get yourself, your staff, and your service providers, partners, and contractors up-to-speed quickly.
Cost-effective. At a cost of only $29.00 per webcast, you’ll find no more cost-effective solution to your training needs. There are no travel costs, and no lost time from work. These webcasts are the best value for your dollar!
Content-rich. Each webcast is packed with useful information, guidance, and helpful tips. Participants state that our webcasts are “excellent,” “very informative,” and “highly-organized.” Participants will receive a copy of the PowerPoint presentation used for the webcast.
Certificate-based. Within three to five business days, each participant who registers and attends the webcast receives, by email, a certificate of attendance at the training to support competency requirements.
Payment is made using PayPal.
You are not required to have a PayPal account; PayPal offers the option for you to pay as a “guest.”
Webcast Registration and Viewing: Quick Tips
If you register yourself for the webcast, once your payment has been processed, you will receive an email containing a link for you to access the webcast. The email will be sent to the address you used for registration. Be sure to check your “Spam” and “Junk Mail” folders if you do not see the email within two to three hours. Normally, the email should appear within 30 minutes of completion of your registration. Once you open the email, you will be able to click on a link that takes you directly to the webcast content.
If you do not receive an email within two to three hours of registration, then you should be able to access the webcast by clicking on the “Register” tab above, and entering your email address. This time, instead of requesting payment for the webcast, your email address will be recognized and you should be taken directly to the webcast content.
Finally, if you are not able to view this Web site in its entirety, or register for a webcast using a particular browser, then try another browser (Google Chrome, Safari, Mozilla). Once you successfully register for a webcast, you will be able to view that webcast.
If you are registering others for the webcast, please ensure that you use the registrant’s name and email address. Again, make sure the registrant checks his or her “Spam” and “Junk Mail” folders for an email confirming the registration. Once the email is received, the registrant will enter the webcast content by clicking on the link provided in the email. Or, if no email is received within two to three hours of completion of the registration, the registrant should click on the “Register” tab above, and enter the email address provided during registration. This time, instead of requesting payment for the webcast, the registrant’s email address will be recognized and the registrant should be taken directly to the webcast content.
