Webinars / Simulcasts

  • What’s a Live Webinar?

    A live Webinar allows you to receive CE credits from the comfort of your own PC at work or at home. Because it’s live, no post-test is required and you will have the opportunity to interact with the speaker. Watch the presentation on your PC, listen on your PC speakers or via toll-free phone line, ask the speaker questions via a chat box, then print your CE certificate online, and your credits are complete.

  • Can I go back and review a simulcast or webinar afterwards?

    No, since it is a live event and not recorded.

  • How does it work?

    From any MTMI web page click on the WEBINARS tab, and then click on LIVE WEBINARS to find the Webinar that you want to attend. Register on the web and we will send a password and log on information to your email account. Once logged into the Webinar, you will receive a toll-free 888-telephone number to listen in if you do not have speakers attached to your computer. At the end of each session, you will be asked to evaluate your experience online with a short survey. At the end of the Webinar you will receive an email with a link to print your CE certificate.

  • Is it mandatory to have a phone to do a simulcast/webinar even if my computer has speakers?

    You will need to have access to a phone in the event there is a problem and we need to get a hold of you but you don’t need to have a phone to hear the program if your computer has speakers.

  • Why a Webinar?

    Get your CE credits quickly and easily at your PC. No need to travel or stay overnight at a hotel. Save money on travel expenses and still be able to experience a live seminar.

  • Why would I need to call on the telephone?

    Because some PC’s have audio speakers and some don’t. We want everyone to be able to attend and have an excellent audio and visual experience. The call is however, NOT toll free. It could be subject to a change depending on your telephone carrier.

  • How do I join a webinar?

    Joining is easy and just takes a few seconds:

    Simply click the link in the e-mail invitation. You’ll proceed to your session immediately. Just remember to register first if attending a webinar or class. (The registration link is in the invitation email.)

    Alternatively, if you have the session ID but don’t have easy access to the direct link:

    Go to www.joinwebinar.com.

    Once there, type or paste the ID provided by the organizer. Click Yes or Always (or Trust on a Mac) if prompted to accept the download. You will enter the session.

  • How do I ask the speaker questions?

    In the corner of your screen will be a “Question and Answer” box. Simply type your question into the box and send it directly to the speaker. The speaker may answer your question immediately, or the speaker may wait to address your question at a more appropriate time during the presentation.

  • Can the speaker ask me questions?

    No. The speaker cannot ask specific questions to an individual attendee. However, the speaker can take a poll from the entire audience and may ask you to participate. A polling question may pop-up on your screen with a short question and multiple-choice answer. Your answer will remain anonymous and these polling techniques may be used so the speaker sees how well the attendees are learning the material.

  • What if I have problems viewing the Webinar?

    Each Webinar will have a coordinator. If you are not logged in at the start of the webinar the coordinator will call you and help you log in. The coordinator will also make sure that you are receiving the audio portion of the Webinar properly. 

  • How do you take attendance?

    We can track your attendance by monitoring when you log on and off from each session. At the end of the Webinar series your attendance will be verified and your credits will be available to you. You must be in full attendance for every session in order to receive the approved CE credit/certificate.

  • How do I receive my CE credits?

    At the end of the Webinar sessions you will be asked to complete one last short survey. Once that is complete, we will confirm your attendance and email a link for you to print your own CE certificate.

  • Are these credits approved by the ARRT?

    Yes. These Webinars will provide Category A continuing education credit for radiologic technologists recognized by the ARRT and various licensure states. A certificate of attendance will be provided for each individual upon completion of the Webinar. All attendees must attend the entire Webinar to receive credit.

  • When will the sessions start?

    Each session will begin promptly at the scheduled time. Your confirmation letter will include start times for each session, within each time zone. You will be able to log in to each session up to 20 minutes prior to the start. We recommend logging in early to avoid missing any of the session.

  • What if I miss a session?

    Because this is a live seminar it is impossible to “rewind” the presentation if you miss it. Please plan on attending the entire series of sessions to receive credit.

  • What if I’m late logging into the Webinar?

    The ARRT requires full attendance to receive the approved certificate of completion. You will be able to log in to each session up to 20 minutes prior to the start. We recommend logging in early to avoid missing any of the session.

  • Why is there no post-test?

    Because this educational experience is live and your attendance is monitored, no post-test is necessary. You will be asked to complete an online survey at the end of each session prior to receiving credit for attendance.
