*Registration is limited to 25 participants per session.

The following equipment is required for the virtual sessions :

  • To participate in a virtual training, a camera, microphone, and speakers are required. Most new laptops, smartphones, and tablets are equipped with internal cameras, microphones, and speakers. These internal devices are sufficient for use in our virtual trainings.

  • However, for the best experience, we suggest participants use an external headset with a built-in microphone. This may include your Apple earbuds or third party headphones with microphone. Headsets with built-in microphones provide listening privacy, reduce microphone feedback, and transmit higher quality audio.

  • If you have a pair of headphones that do not have a built-in microphone, your computer, smartphone, or tablet internal microphone will suffice, but to minimize microphone feedback, we ask that you still listen to the audio with your headphones plugged in.

  • If you do not have a pair of headphones with or without a built-in microphone, you may still complete the training using the internal camera, microphone, and speakers of your device.
