About the Webinar Series

Purchase of this item  includes 12-months access to our Webinar Series as described here.

You can purchase at any time and the 12-months will begin on the date of the next webinar. For instance, if you purchase on 12/28 and the next webinar isn’t until 1/5, then your 12-months will end on 1/5 of the following year.

This purchase is for one person and will be registered by first name, last name and email address.

There will be a minimum of 2 webinars per month except for November and December.

As an additional bonus, purchase of 12-months access to our Webinar series also gives you a half-price registration to any other paid, online training sessions during your subscription period.

The list of upcoming webinars can be found here. The webinars are live and interactive and you will have an opportunity to ask questions and have them answered.

Depending on your state’s licensing and professional development requirements, the minutes or hours spent in each webinar presentation MAY be accepted as continuing education credit for license renewal. Approximately twice a year we will use the Go To Webinar report feature that tracks ATTENDANCE and ATTENTIVENESS of each participant to send emails confirming your attendance at each webinar.

ALSO, each attendee MUST register and log into the session individually in order for Go To Webinar to properly track attendance and attentiveness.

PLEASE NOTE: These email confirmations do not guarantee that your state licensing board will accept the hours for PDH/CEU credit, but it  may be worth calling or emailing to confirm whether they can be counted.

While some of my past webinars have been recorded and are publicly available here or on Carlson’s website, these webinars are available exclusively to those who have purchased new licenses of software from That CAD Girl in the preceding 12-month period or who have purchased this 12-month subscription.

You can learn more about our monthly webinars and other training here.
