This article aims to guide users 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 user 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 user finds a session or conference you are interested in attending - regardless of whether it's paid or free - requires the user 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.health account, as they are used to confirm your profile. Otherwise, this step will not work!|
|4. Once this form is complete, your registration will be complete.|
Registering with a Conference Platform
The next step of the process is to register with a conference platform. TPN.health 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 with a conference you will be able to confirm your registration with your TPN.health profile. Once logged into your account, in the top right corner you will see your name with a dropdown option. Click the dropdown and go to "My Events". This is where all of your confirmed active and upcoming events are housed. If you click "upcoming events" you will see the conference you just registered for.
The day of the conference, it will be shown in "active events" and this is where you will access the virtual conference hall. The links to events under your personal "my events" page are in your name only and should not be shared with other attendees. More info on best practices in video conferencing here.
Note: Depending on the timing of your registration, you may not receive a reminder email if you register within an hour before start time.
