Webinar Frequently Asked Questions (FAQS)

What is a webinar?

A webinar is a web seminar. Webinars are a way for participants in many different locations to see and hear a presentation. A webinar typically consists of a moderator, one or more presenters, and the online audience.

How do I sign up for a webinar?

Just click the registration link on the webinar page. As soon as your registration is received, you will receive a confirmation email with the link to access the webinar. On the day of the webinar, click the link (about 10 minutes before the scheduled start time is recommended) and you will see the welcome screen for the webinar.

What kind of equipment do I need?

All you need is a computer with an Internet connection (high speed service such as DSL or cable works best) and speakers. You may also use a headset instead of speakers or you may listen to the audio by calling the phone number that is included in your confirmation email.

Does it cost anything to participate?

Webinars are a benefit of being an SNA Member and are free to members only. Non-members can participate in both live and on-demand webinars, however, there is a $20.00 fee. To learn more about becoming an SNA, please visit this link.

I can't attend the live webinar date. Will the webinar be repeated? Is there any way to watch it later?

All SNA webinars are recorded and posted in the on-demand library and may be accessed at any time by SNA Members. Non-members can participate in both live and on-demand webinars, however, there is a $20.00 fee. To learn more about becoming an SNA, please visit this link.

How do I ask a question during the live webinar? Will my question be answered during the presentation?

During each live webinar you can ask a question by typing it into the question box that appears on your webinar screen. Questions are answered at the end of the webinar, approximately 3:00–3:15 pm ET. We will do our best to answer as many questions as possible.

Can I get a copy of the PowerPoint slides used in the webinar?

The PowerPoint slides are available to download during the live webinar. Find the handout section of your control panel and click on the PDF to download. For Webinars On-Demand, you will find the handouts on the Resources tab while watching the video. On occasion, speakers will ask that SNA not share their presentations due to business reasons or intellectual rights.

How can I get information on future webinars?

Future webinars are posted on the SNA website as soon as they are scheduled and are also announced via the SNA home page, and emails to our members.

Do I earn CEUs for attending the webinar or watching in the on-demand library?

Yes, for most webinars, you earn 1 CEU for attending the live webinar or watching in the on-demand library. All Webinar Wednesdays require the completion of a webinar evaluation and quiz before earning a certificate. Webinar Wednesdays provide one (1) CEU and one (1) CPEU for RDNs and NDTRs. Other SNA webinars, Talk Tuesdays, the Membership Webinar Series and iWebinars provide important information but are not educational in nature and do not provide CEUs.

Does SNA keep track of the CEUs for me?

You should always print out your proof of attendance when taking online training. A copy should be kept in a file available for you to turn into your manager when asked. The Training Zone provides you with a personal profile that stores the certificates you’ve earned on the Training Zone.
