This article aims to guide subscribers through the process of reserving, registering for, and joining one of our virtual events. This article assumes you already have applied for and been approved as a subscriber of TPN Health. We will guide you through the steps: Reserving, Registering, and Joining.
Reserving a Spot for an Event
When an approved TPN Health subscriber finds a session or conference you are interested in attending - regardless of whether it's paid or free - requires the subscriber to reserve a spot.
1. Typically this involves selecting the "Register" button found on our Events page (see photo below)
|2. This button will open a form that prompts you to enter your name, email address, and - in the case of events sponsored by third-party organizations (e.g. NASW-LA) information that organization needs for their conference/event|
|3. Be careful to carefully enter your name and email address associated with your TPN account, as they are used to confirm your subscription. Otherwise, this step will not work!|
|4. Once this form is complete, an email will be sent to confirm your reservation|
Registering with a Conference Platform
The next step of the process is to register with a conference platform. TPN has used several platforms, including Zoom and GoToWebinar. In any case, it is absolutely critical to complete this step to gain access to a webinar! The conference platform tracks your attendance, thus verifying your eligibility for CE credit.
After reserving your spot you should immediately see a confirmation page including a join link. This link should also arrive via email momentarily and again one hour prior to start time. This join link is unique to you and should be saved for later use. This link will bring you immediately to the session and should be used at the time of the event.

Note: Depending on the timing of your registration, you may not receive a reminder email if you register within an hour before start time.
