This information is needed for communications to confirm registration and to communicate any changes to training logistics.

Virtual Training Requirements

Participants will receive an email with handouts and the link for Zoom three days prior to each training session. It is recommended that you print all handouts prior to each session.

Participants must log in at least fifteen minutes prior to the start of the session to make sure audio, video and internet connection works. Be sure to name your device by using your first and last name only. You may need to download Zoom first if you have not used it before, so please make sure you give yourself enough time to troubleshoot.

Participants must log in on their own device using a computer, laptop, or tablet.

To minimize disruptions, we ask that you mute your microphone when you are not speaking and/or
sharing.

To avoid any disruptions, participants will not be admitted into the training session 15 minutes after the

You will be asked to sign in at the beginning of the session and sign out at the end of the session via the chat function. If you are fifteen or more minutes late, do not sign in and sign out using your full name, you will not receive credit.

Cancellation Policy

If you are unable to attend the training you must notify Lysa Nguyen via email as soon as possible. Failure to cancel at least three days prior to the session will mean you are blocked from future online training registration.
