Webinar FAQ

How does a webinar work?

A webinar is a live online training programme. The trainer delivers the webinar over the internet, in real time so you can ask questions and participate in the training; participants log into the webinar, view the training slides, listen to the trainer deliver the webinar and can ask questions which are answered during the webinar verbally or after the webinar by email.

Will a webinar work on my device?

Webinars should work on all devices including Apple and PC. You can test your connection and speakers when you have logged into the webinar software using the following instructions.

Will I receive a certificate for the webinar?

Yes, you will receive a participation certificate and relevant handouts by email after you have completed the webinar.
