Individual students will sign in and attendance is verified by the course administrator. Multiple registered students can attend as a group as long as they complete an attendance roster and someone in their office verifies attendance. Please email your request for an attendance roster to Gwen Mason at firstname.lastname@example.org
before the webinar for group attendance.
You may register online with a credit card up to two business days prior to the webinar. Once your registration has been processed, you will receive an emailed confirmation. 24 hours before the class, we will email you the link to enter the webinar at its scheduled time, a student outline, and webinar instructions.
Please verify that you received the link several hours before the webinar. If it's not in your inbox, check your spam/junk folder and make sure that all email from bigi.org is on your approved list to prevent your filters from blocking these emails.
No exam is required for CE credit. It is really that easy!
Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Will there be an exam?

Q: What if I have computer problems?
A: If you have trouble opening the link in the email sent to you 24 hours before the class, try to open it in another browser. If you get into the webinar and have problems with the webinar, then call FISCE. The number is in the email with the link. We recommend that you have a back-up for joining the webinar in case of internet problems or your computer itself is having issues. We will only refund/transfer money if the problem is on our end or if FISCE reports technical issues.
Q: What if I didn't get the link email?
A: Link emails are sent out around 24 hours before the webinar giving you plenty of time to verify that you received it. If it is not in your inbox, please check your spam/junk folder and make sure that bigi.org email is on your approved list to prevent filters from blocking the link emails. If you're link email was blocked by your filter, please call IIAI to have the link resent.
Q: What is the webinar cancellation policy?
A: All online registrations must be cancelled online two business days prior to the webinar at which time registration and online cancellation is closed. A written request for a one-time webinar transfer or webinar cancellation for all other registrations must be submitted to email@example.com at least two business days prior to the webinar. A $20 processing fee will apply for all webinar transfers and cancellations made less than two business days before the webinar, and must be paid before a transfer or cancellation will be completed. No transfers or refunds will be given after the webinar has started.
