I've registered for a webinar. How do I connect to it?

If you have successfully registered for one of our webinars you will receive a confirmation email shortly thereafter. If it does not appear, please check your email spam/trash folders. There is an additional email that is sent out the day before (in the early afternoon) to all webinar registrants, titled “ACE Webinar Log-in Instructions”. It provides the weblink to log-in and other important information. If that does not appear in a timely fashion, please contact Patrick MacQuarrie .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address) and he will provide whatever details you might need.

What sort of computer do I need to participate in these webinars?

Our webinars are delivered via the Adobe Connect platform, which requires the current version of Adobe Flash and a standards-compliant web browser, like Mozilla Firefox, Chrome, or Safari. Many of our webinars include multimedia material (such as streaming video and/or audio) so a stable broadband Internet connection is recommended. If you are unsure your computer is compliant, please go to our test webpage http://arpa.adobeconnect.com/common/help/en/support/meeting_test.htm to check compatibility.

At what time are the webinars usually held?

Generally, our webinars are held at 10AM or 2PM Mountain Time. There is the occasional exception due to presenters’ needs, so please check your registration to be sure. All times posted are Mountain Time as ARPA is headquartered in Alberta.

I've found a webinar I'd like to attend. When should I register for it?

If you’ve found something you’d like to participate in, please register at your soonest possible convenience. It is common for our webinars fill up to capacity and registration for all of our webinars is closed the day before they will be held (at approximately 2PM Mountain Time) to allow for various administrative and technical processes.

I would like to cancel my registration. How do I do this? Can I get my money back?

If it is necessary to cancel your registration, we will issue a refund (using the original method of payment) minus a $20 administration charge for cancellations received in writing at least seven days prior to the event.

The registration fee is non-refundable for cancellations made less than seven days prior to the event. In those cases, you may transfer your registration to a future webinar once at no additional cost, or arrange for a substitute person to attend in your place.

Those who do not cancel and do not attend are responsible for the full registration fee.

If you were unable to attend your registered webinar and could not provide enough notice to cancel, access to the archived webinar may be available (at the discretion of the presenter).

ARPA reserves the right to cancel or reschedule its advertised webinars and will give notice as far in advance as possible, as well as a full refund of fees or transfer of registration to another webinar if so desired by the participant.
