Webinars and Teleconferences

APHL Webinars are a cost-effective way for your entire lab or institution to receive continuing education credits, either at the live broadcast or online later. Continuing education credits (P.A.C.E.®, FL Lab CE and CPH) are available for most of the courses. Your site registration fee entitles you to one connection to the live webinar, handout materials AND 6 months unlimited access (and CEUs) for everyone at your site. Can’t do webinars? Your site still can participate by phone and hear the live broadcast. If you can’t attend the live broadcast, you have the option to register your site for the 6 months of access (and CEUs).

NEW! All webinars scheduled for 2014 have an individual registration fee for the previously recorded courses! You pay $25 and an individual can get access and continuing education credit for the program. Most are available for CPH re-certification credits as well as laboratory credits!
