Course materials may occasionally not become available until 1-2 days before a Live Webcast.
ON EVENT DAY
It is recommended to log into your customer account and launch the Live Webcast viewer 30 minutes prior to the scheduled start time.
Please note that an active Live Webcast stream will typically be active 10 to 30 minutes prior to the event start time and will automatically replace any test video in your viewer.
What is a Live Webcast?A Live Webcast is a seminar with audio and video that is conveniently live-streamed directly to your computer or mobile device.
Since this is a live broadcast, you attend on a specific date and time. A Live Webcast cannot be paused as the program is delivered in real-time.
Longer Live Webcasts will include real-time breaks.
My video is stuck or has stopped playingIf your video has dropped audio or has stopped playing altogether, please try refreshing your entire viewer page by going to the Help tab in the viewer and clicking on the "Reload Viewer" text link to refresh the page and reload the program.
If you are unable to locate the Help tab on the video viewer page, please locate and click the Reload/Refresh icon on your web page. The reload/refresh icon is usually a clockwise turned arrow icon located near the web address on the web page.
If reloading the page, as shown above, does not resolve the issue, you may try closing your web browser entirely and reopening it and navigating back to the program, and relaunching the program.
My video playback is stuttering, buffering, or playing poorlyThere are a couple of main culprits that may cause streaming playback issues. We've found the following troubleshooting steps correct the vast majority of buffering or stuttering performance issues. Any option by itself may clear up the playback issues.
Please note that Internet Explorer is no longer supported by Microsoft and is also no longer supported for program playback. If you are unsure of what Internet browser you are using, you can check by visiting this link. If you are on Internet Explorer, we recommend you switch to Microsoft Edge
TEMPORARY VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
If your video has stopped momentarily and this issue isn't occurring consistently, please try refreshing your entire viewer page by going to the Help tab in the viewer and clicking on the "Reload Viewer" text to refresh the page and reload the program.
If reloading the video doesn't seem to resolve the issue, here are some more suggestions:
CONSISTENT VIDEO PLAYBACK ISSUE
STEP #1: LOCK ONTO THE LEAST DEMANDING VIDEO STREAM
You may be having intermittent issues with your Internet connection. This solution will lock you into the lowest available video stream that may smooth out your video playback experience.
Hover your mouse over the video player
Hover your mouse over the HD text at the bottom right of your video player
Select the lowest number listed to lock your video onto the least demanding video stream.
If video playback issues continue - move on to Step #2 below
PLEASE NOTE: If you are on a Mac device and/or using Safari, the HD button is not present. In order to lower the stream speed, you will need to switch to the Google Chrome browser.
STEP #2: SWITCH TO AN ALTERNATE INTERNET BROWSER
Your Internet cache in your browser may need to be cleaned/cleared out. If you are unsure about how to clear your browser cache, an alternate, easier and quicker option is to try switching to a different Internet browser to continue viewing the program. If you're on Microsoft Edge - try switching to view the program on the Google Chrome browser. Other popular browsers such as Opera and Firefox are compliant with program playback. Following this step resolves the vast majority of playback issues.
Internet Explorer is no longer a supported web browser. If you are attempting to view the video content using Internet Explorer, you will need to switch to another browser such as Microsoft Edge, Google Chrome or Firefox.
If any video playback issue persists, please contact Support for further troubleshooting.

WIRED CONNECTION VS WIFI CONNECTION
While WiFi routers have come a long way, a wireless connection is susceptible to more connection issues than a wired connection. Distance from the wireless router, walls, other wireless signals can all impact your connection. If you run into any performance issues in viewing a streaming program, we recommend switching to a wired connection. Please note that you typically will need to disable your wireless connection in order to confirm you are on a wired connection.
We recommend a wired Internet connect with at least 1Mbps of download speed for the best viewing experience
