Upcoming Live Continuing Education Webinars:

Participants must be present for at least 50 minutes of a 1 hour webinar, or 1 hour 45 minutes of a 2 hour webinar to receive credit per NYS regulation.  All Certificates of Attendance will be e-mailed to attendees at the conclusion of the event.  Only registered attendees are eligible to receive a certificate.

Each registrant must use their unique email to register.  Our system will email only one certificate per email address for any given webinar.  This is an attempt to reduce fraud.  (example:  You have 4 funeral directors in your office and you register all 4 using  Only the last person to be registered will receive a certificate.  Instead, use each funeral director’s individual email when registering).  Additionally, each registrant must be logged into the webinar room using a unique device.  Again, this is an effort to reduce fraud.

All webinars are $30 per attendee per credit hour unless otherwise noted.  Payment is accepted via credit card ONLY.  Phone calls for registration will be redirected to the website.  There are absolutely no refunds.
