CPD Certificate

Live webinar delegates will receive a CPD certificate for attendance at this webinar.  Accountants can claim up to 1.5 CPD/Training hours.  This webinar has been designed to run for 1.5 hours, however, webinar lengths can vary depending on the level of questions and discussion, and the minimum length of the webinar is 1hour.

Attending a TEN webinar couldn’t be easier. Basically it’s just like attending a seminar except that you don’t have to leave the comfort of your office or home. You just need to be available at the appointed date and time with your computer and internet connection.

Once you’ve registered for the webinar, we send you a link so that you can login to the webinar from your computer. The speaker delivers the session from their computer in real time. Just like a live seminar, you can ask questions of the speaker. You simply type your question into the question box and the speaker responds to it during question time.
At the end of the webinar session we send you a certificate to confirm your attendance and the number of CPD hours you earned.

You will need a computer with sound, an internet connection and earphones if you need to participate in the webinar in an open office environment (so you don’t disrupt those around you).
