Webinar FAQs

How do I register for a CCOHS webinar?

Register for any one of our webinars from our Webinars page. Click on the REGISTER button beside the webinar title you are interested in attending. From there you’ll be taken to a Registration page where you’ll fill in a short online form. After comleting and submitting this form you'll receive full instructions via e-mail including a website url for logging in and a toll-free telephone number to access the audio.

If you have any questions regarding the online registration process contact CCOHS Client Services via the web or call 1-800-668-4284.

How do webinars differ from webcasts?

In a webcast the data transmission is in one direction therefore not allowing interaction between the presenter and the audience. In a webinar the presenter interacts with his audience via telephone and web-based tools.

Can I view a webinar at a later date?

In some cases (but not all) webinars are recorded and made available for viewing under Previously Recorded Webinars in the Webinars section of our website.

How do time zones effect presentation times?

All CCOHS webinars are presented during Eastern Daylight Time (EDT*). Eastern Daylight Time is the Eastern Time Zone of the United States of America (USA) and Canada. Eastern Standard Time (EST) is 5 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-5).

*In most states in the USA and in most provinces in Canada, Daylight-Saving Time (DST) is observed. During DST the time is shifted forward by 1 hour to EDT; which is 4 hours behind Greenwich Mean Time (GMT-4).

How many people can attend a webinar with me?

Once you register to attend a webinar you can invite as many people as you can accomodate to view it with you. Of course you’ll need to provide the projection and audio equipment for the number of people you expect to attend.
