Why is virtual class registration the same price as the onsite event, when we won’t be getting the same product?

While a virtual class does not have the same experience as an in-person class, there are trade-offs in value between the two experiences.

  • The virtual class provides the same continuing education credit opportunities as the in-person class allows.
  • The virtual class provides access to the same high-quality instructors and education content as the in-person class, including virtual interaction and networking with other virtual participants.
  • The virtual class requires no additional travel/hotel expense to participate and allows you to access the entire virtual class on demand through January 2021.
  • Because you can participate in the virtual class from the convenience of your home, office, or on the go, you are not required to take significant time off work or away from family in order to attend, and you have the option to re-watch the virtual class recordings on demand after you participate in the live virtual class days.
  • What is a virtual class?

    A virtual class is a learning event that takes place only online. The instructors and attendees are in many locations. Virtual classes provide greater flexibility with content structures and timelines. It is not an exact replica of an in-person class, but it provides much of the same value as an in-person class and often additional value.

    Do I have to attend the entire event?

    Yes, you do need to attend the entire live virtual class. You will have on-demand access to review the recorded class afterwards through January 2021.

    Do I have to attend every day, all day to get my CE?

    Yes, the continuing education (CE) credits for the virtual class will be awarded for your completion of the entire live virtual class.

    Can my computer or mobile device handle the virtual class?

    Yes. To have the best possible virtual experience, be sure you’re accessing the virtual class with a strong internet connection. If others are using the same internet connection as you are, you may need a stronger bandwidth. Contact your internet provider to determine your individual internet needs or ask others not to use the same internet connection as you while you’re participating in the live virtual event.

    While the virtual class can be accessed through a mobile device, we recommend using a computer to participate in the virtual class for the best possible experience and virtual interaction with the instructors and other participants.
