Webinar FAQ

About PHRC Webinars

1. When are your webinars?

Our webinars are typically held the second Tuesday of the month from 1:00pm-2:00pm (1 hour).  Webinars are hosted in every month, except: March (when we host our annual conference) and June, July, and August (when our audience members are in their busiest season!) 

Occasionally we will host special webinars on timely topics.  Keep up to date on our full list of upcoming webinars at: http://www.phrc.psu.edu/Industry-Education/Webinar-Index.aspx

2. Do you have recordings of your past webinars?

Yes! Within a few days of the live webinar offering, a link to the recording will be available on that webinar’s webpage.  Our full list of past webinars and their recordings are available here: http://www.phrc.psu.edu/Industry-Education/Webinar-Index.aspx

Please note: at this time, we are unable to issue continuing education credits for viewing recorded webinars. 

3. How much do your webinars cost?

All of our webinars (past and upcoming) are FREE to view.  A continuing education credit certificate may be obtained after watching a live webinar, which costs $20.  A link with instructions on how to obtain this certificate will be presented during the live webinar.  

4. Where can I see the full list of your webinars?

The full list of both upcoming and past webinars are located on our website at: http://www.phrc.psu.edu/Industry-Education/Webinar-Index.aspx

Accessing the Webinar

1. Do I need to pre-register for the webinar?

No pre-registration is required for our webinars.  Please just click on the webinar page link a few minutes before the webinar.  The Adobe Connect meeting link will be available at that time to access the webinar.

2. How do I get into the webinar?

Click on the webinar page link a few minutes before the webinar.  The Adobe Connect meeting link will be available at that time to access the webinar. Once on the Adobe Connect page, you have two options: If you are a Penn State student, faculty, or staff member or if you have a Friends of Penn State Account, you can click the “Login” option and enter your PSU credentials, or you can enter as a guest. If you are entering as a guest, it is recommended that you type your first and last name into the guest field, as this will be how you are identified in the webinar chat pod.

3. What technical requirements are needed to access the webinar?

System requirements for accessing meetings using Adobe Connect can be found on the following Adobe Connect help page: https://helpx.adobe.com/adobe-connect/tech-specs.html 

Continuing Education

1. What continuing education credits are available for your webinars?

Depending on the topic, each webinar is eligible for continuing education credit with one or more of the following groups: AIA, ICC, L&I, and NARI. Many webinars are also appropriate content for Pennsylvania licensed engineer PDH’s. When appropriate, we will obtain preapproval for the webinar with the appropriate entities for continuing education credits, specifically AIA, ICC, and NARI.  The webpage for each webinar will list the available continuing education credit opportunities.  Be sure to review the specific webinar’s available continuing education credits to confirm. Regardless of the stated available continuing education credit, it is ultimately up to the individual to determine whether or not the webinar is appropriate to claim credit for with a specific organization.

2. How do I receive the continuing education certificate?

The last slide of the live webinar will display a link to receive the continuing education certificate.  Please be sure to click this link and register for your certificate by 6pm on the evening of the webinar broadcast, before the link expires.  It costs $20 to register and receive the continuing education certificate.  The certificate will then be emailed to you through the CVENT interface, so be sure to check your spam folder if you do not see it in your inbox.

3. Can I receive a continuing education certificate for watching a recorded webinar?

At this time, we are unable to issue continuing education credits for viewing recorded webinars. 

4. I have more than on person watching the live webinar with me on my computer.  Can others watching the live webinar also receive a continuing education certificate?

Yes!  As long as the person looking for a continuing education certificate has watched the full live webinar and you have interacted with the poll questions throughout, each person watching the webinar may use the registration link presented at the end of the webinar to receive a certificate.

5. The organization for which I would like to receive continuing education credit is not listed on your certificate.  Can I still receive credit for your webinar?

Please double check the guidelines and requirements for your continuing education credits, e.g. how you may self-report applicable continuing education credits.  Only the continuing education credits listed on the webinar’s webpage will be listed on the continuing education certificate by the PHRC.
