What is an online seminar?
It is exactly like the preview slides, shown in a slideshow format - a series of discrete individualized slides of high resolution.

We email the web access link and you can watch it on a
laptop, iPad, Kindle, or a Nook whenever you want and wherever you are.

How do I get Credit?
Online seminars come in 4 parts.  Write a paragraph on each part.

Your paragraph would cover what slides were
most informative and your reactions to selected slides.

he best scheme is to open a word document and simply type in comments as you pass interesting slides in the seminar.
When you finish, you will have what we require as a response to document that you have completed the seminar.

Email it to us at
