A. Yes. The sessions are recorded and will always be housed at www.ECEwebinars.org/webinar-resources. An email that contains a link to the recordings will be sent to attendees and registrants who did not attend within 24 to 48 hours of the conclusion of the session to indicate that the recording was posted.

A. Yes, a link to download a certificate is included in an email sent to all participants who attended the live session within 24 hours of the end of the session AND is announced and shown on the screen during the session. The link is also announced and shown on the screen in all of the recordings. The link is shown on the screen and provided as a direct hyperlink in the “chat” pane in every session.
If you attended the live session, an email with the link will be sent within 24 hours of the conclusion of the session. The system only sends certificates to people who have registered and checked in through our system by logging in to the webinar. Our system retains attendance records and records the time you log in and log off. If you do not receive your email, please check your “junk” or “spam” folder in your email system.
If you do not receive the certificate, you can watch the recording of the session to see the certificate link, copy the link, and type it into your browser to download. All recordings are located here.
Because the link is provided on the screen and verbally during the webinar, you are responsible for your own certificate.
Some schools and organizations block shortened links we use to link to the certificates. If your link does not work, try to access it on another device in another location.
We do not offer technical support for certificates.
