Failure to participate in the entire live webinar will result in partial or no CPE credit.

Note: Multiple paid registrants within an organization may choose to watch the webinar on one screen. In situations where small groups view a webinar, for multiple members of the group to claim CPE credit it is not necessary for the individuals in the group to respond to polling questions individually. The person logged into the program may respond to the polling on behalf of the group and the monitoring of active participation of the individuals in the small group will be documented and verified by the small group administrator.
