A webinar is a live workshop conducted over the internet. Most boards that have requirements for the number of CEUs you can earn via distance learning, will accept a webinar as a live training.
CASAT uses the platforms Zoom and Adobe Connect to run these live webinars. You can find more information about both platforms at the links below as well as find resources to test your connection prior to taking a webinar training:
Note: If two or more people are participating in a webinar on the same computer, a multiple-user form must be completed and emailed after the webinar. EACH participant must be registered separately to receive a certificate.
An online video training consists of a recorded online video training and an assessment you must pass in order to verify your attendance and earn your certificate. Upon completion of an online video training certificates are automatically loaded directly into your account. Some boards have requirements as to the number of CEUs you can earn via this method, please refer to your specific licensing board for more information.
CASAT training has recently launched a new online training platform, www.MYCASAT.org, which consists of several longer, self-paced, module-based courses. Please note that this training platform is separate from www.training.casat.org and requires a separate login.
