We will be using Microsoft Teams to facilitate your participation in the upcoming event. You do not need to have an existing Teams account in order to participate in the broadcast – the course will play in your browser and you will have the option of using a microphone to speak with the room and ask questions, or type any questions in via the chat window and our on-site representative will relay your question to the instructor.
You will receive a meeting invitation will include a link to join the meeting.
Separate meeting invitations will be sent for the morning and afternoon sessions of the course.
You will need to join the appropriate meeting at the appropriate time.
If you are using a microphone, please ensure that it is muted until such time as you need to ask a question.
The remote meeting connection will be open approximately 30 minutes before the start of the course. We encourage you to connect as early as possible in case you experience any unforeseen problems.
