Live Program FAQs
What is the difference in a live webinar, a virtual program, and a recording for credit?
Webinars are classes held in real-time. Instructors take questions from the audience during the event. Webinars last no more than 2 hours.
Virtual programs are longer, live events that may incorporate more interactivity like breakout rooms, poll questions, and multiple speakers.
Recordings are posted videos of past webinars which you can watch for credit at your convenience. Visit our recordings for credit page for more information.
When can I register?
Registration for live webinars is emailed out 1 - 2 weeks before each event. You must register to attend and registration fills up fast.
Registration for virtual programs opens with general registration for in-person programs. You can register for these by logging in and registering through the TJCTC system.
What if the webinar or virtual program is filled?
Don't worry - we send out the webinar recordings and handouts the next day after a webinar so you can still watch and gain credit.
Some virtual programs do not have recordings because they incorporate interactivity that isn't easily recorded. We will always have handouts available to share though upon request.
How can I ask a question during the webinar?
Participants can ask questions and interact in real time during the webinar through webinar software. We will explain how to do this at the beginning of each webinar. Also, you can always post a question on our legal board.
