FOR ALL WEBINARS: 
Most webinars are $35.  All webinars require payment via credit card at the time of registration.

 
FOR LIVE WEBINARS: 

Live Webinars are offered on a specific date at a specific time.   Most of our live webinars are hosted using Zoom.  We use both the meeting and webinar features, so depending on which one we use, you may or may not be able to see other attendees and verbally participate.  As always, you have the option to not show your video on all live webinars.  Registration closes at 5pm the day before the scheduled webinar.  You will receive an email confirmation.  Attendees can cancel their webinar registration up to 48 hours prior to the session for a $30 refund. The $5 cancellation fee is to cover event and credit card processing fees.  Recording Waiver: Many of the NERSC webinars will be recorded and used for an on-demand library to provide training to other housing professionals.  NERSC applies for NASW CEUs for all live webinars.  In order to receive a NERSC Certificate of Attendance and/or NASW CEU Certificate, you must take a short test following the session and pass with 80%.  

FOR ON-DEMAND WEBINARS: 

On-demand webinars are previously recorded webinars (often from our live webinar offerings) that you can purchase and watch at a time that is convenient for you. Since the library is in chronological order according to upcoming dates, you'll be able to find them displayed towards the bottom of the page. These are done on YOUR schedule and you have 90 days to start the training once you've purchased it. Because these are previously recorded, you don't show your video and you cannot interact. We are unable to offer NASW CEUs for these sessions.  You will receive a NERSC Certificate of Attendance once you complete the test and pass with 80%.
