What is a webinar?
A webinar is an educational presentation which you receive through your computer at your own desk or at home. Registration and attendance at a live webinar is eligible for CPD points.
How it works
- You will see and hear the presenter/s and view the PowerPoint Slides.
- You can listen through either speakers or headphones plugged into your computer.
- During the presentation, you can type questions that you would like the presenters to answer. The presenters will endeavour to answer as many questions during the live webinar as time permits. You also have the opportunity to send questions to the presenters in advance.
- You will receive a background booklet about the topic being presented. Please note that if you register less than seven days in advance of the live webinar, your background booklet may not arrive in time.
- You can also access a recording of the presentation after it has been held, enabling you to view the webinar as many times as you like.

Benefits of webinars
It's all about convenience and keeping up-to-date.
- Short presentations from nationally recognised presenters who would otherwise not be available to you.
- No travel costs.
- You can access them from your own computer either when they are scheduled to present or at a later time if need be.
- If you join the live webinar you can ask questions of the presenters.
- You will receive both a short background booklet and PowerPoint slides setting out the main points of the presentation.
- Latest training at an affordable price.
I am interested but I can't 'attend' on the day
Not a problem! All webinar presentations are sold as packages after the live webinar. Each package includes:
- Access to the archived presentation when it suits you;
- Access to the PowerPoint slides; &
- The webinar booklet.
The only difference between the webinar and the webinar package is those who purchase the package cannot ask questions of the presenter. However, the archived recording contains all the questions that were answered during the live presentation. Note: Archived webinar presentations are not eligible for CPD points.
