Webinars and speaker series FAQs

Your manager or training department will schedule it directly with Wavelength. We occasionally offer public open-enrollment webinars to individuals so you can sign up for a session yourself.

Our course administration team works with your training coordinator to confirm participant numbers and rosters, as well as participant materials and logistics. The team also answers questions and troubleshoots any issues.

About two weeks before your session is scheduled to begin, you receive an email with information about how to join, including login details for virtual sessions and logistical details for in-person sessions. You receive an email explaining what to expect and how to prepare. If you’re using digital participant materials, you also receive these with your email. If you’re using print materials, you receive these when you arrive for your session.

You spend your time learning. Our webinars and speaker sessions are interactive, so you have plenty of opportunities to try out new skills and share ideas as you learn.

Yes! You receive a copy of the PPT for future reference. You may also receive additional materials to use during or after your session.

Typically, there’s no prework for webinars and speaker sessions. If you receive digital materials with your pre-course email, we ask you to have these downloaded and saved to your device to use as you need during the session. Otherwise, just bring yourself and come ready to engage and learn!

We don’t ask participants to turn video on for webinars.

For webinars, you need a computer, preferably with camera and microphone capabilities, with your digital materials downloaded and saved. Although it’s possible to join virtual sessions on other devices, we recommend a computer for an optimal learning experience.

For in-person speaker sessions, bring a laptop if you’re using digital materials, and a pen and notebook if you wish to take notes by hand.
