How do I purchase a Webinar?

When accessing the EBIA website or responding to an email advertisement, you will be directed to the EBIA main page on Checkpoint Learning. From there, you can access a complete list of webinar offerings and will have the ability to select the webinar topic of your choice.

After selecting your webinar, you will access the full event description and make your purchase decision. If you are not already a Checkpoint Learning customer, you will need to setup a new Checkpoint Learning account. Follow the step-by-step instructions to easily setup and access your new account.

After your webinar purchase, you will receive two emails from Checkpoint Learning confirming your purchase, one is an order confirmation and the second is a webinar participation email detailing continuing education information. A third email with the webinar login link and instructions will be sent to you within 24-48 business hours of the event time. Online registration ends at midnight CST the day before the webinar.

I didn’t make the webinar online registration deadline, can I still attend?

Same day registrations are accepted up until the start of the event. If you are registering after online registration has ended, please contact 800.950.1216 to register and receive your webinar login link and instructions. If you cannot attend an event for which you have registered, simply press the Unregister button for the event. If you have questions, please call us at 800.950.1216 or email us at CheckpointLearning.Webinars@thomsonreuters.com.

Will I receive a copy of the course materials in advance of the webinar?

When you receive the email with the webinar login link and instructions, a PDF of the course materials will be attached.

How do I access the webinars in WebEx?

The WebEx login link and instructions are included in the email sent 24-48 business hours in advance of the webinar event start time.

Can a group attend a webinar event?

For those who wish to attend our webinars as a group:

  • All attendees must be registered for the event.

  • The group must appoint a moderator who will answer the above mentioned polling questions on behalf of all those in attendance

  • The moderator must ensure that the "Checkpoint Learning Webinars - Group Moderator Form" (PDF) is filled out completely and signed attesting that all parties were in attendance during the event. Please submit as directed on the form.

Will continuing education credit be awarded for webinar events?

EBIA webinars sponsored by Checkpoint Learning will award continuing professional education credit for CPA professionals in accordance with NASBA requirements and conditioned upon answering polling questions during the event. A CPE certificate will be issued as confirmation of attendance and credit. Other professionals may use this certificate as a confirmation of attendance if they elect to pursue other types of continuing education credit with the appropriate entities.

How will I earn my webinar CPE certificate or confirmation of attendance?

In order to qualify for CPE credit, per NASBA requirements, please be prepared to participate in a series of polling questions to track your participation. The polling box will appear on the right-hand side of your WebEx screen allowing you to select an answer and press submit. Please follow the presentation closely because you will only have two minutes to respond to each of the questions which will be asked at irregular intervals throughout the webinar. The correctness of your answer is not important. We simply need to know that you are participating. Other professionals wishing a confirmation of attendance should follow the same process.

If I don’t want a CPE certificate, do I need to answer the polling questions?

If you do not wish to receive a CPE certificate, there is no requirement to answer the polling questions.

If you are attending as part of a group and any or all of the members wish to obtain a CPE certificate, polling questions must be answered and seats must be purchased for each attendee.

How will I receive my webinar certificate of completion?

After the close of the webinar, if you have responded to a minimum of 75% of the polling questions, you will receive an email from Checkpoint Learning with a link to your CPE certificate. This will be sent to you within 5 business days. Should you not find yours, please check your SPAM folder.  You can also logon to your Checkpoint Learning account and view or print your certificate. It will be located in the ‘activity history’ tab. If you have any questions or still can’t find your certificate, please contact Checkpoint Learning Customer Service and Product Support at 800.431.9025. To ensure timely delivery of your CPE Certificate please be sure that you log into WebEx with the same first and last name that is used for your Checkpoint Learning account. It is critical that the names match exactly (Checkpoint Learning account first name: Johnathan, last name: Doe. Do not sign into WebEx as John Doe).

Will I be able to submit questions before the webinar event?

Yes. There will be a survey link in the email with the webinar login link and instructions sent 24-48 business hours in advance of the webinar event start time.

Will I be able to evaluate and provide feedback about the webinar?

In addition to an email with a link to your CPE certificate, you will also receive an email from Checkpoint Learning with a link to an online webinar evaluation. Completing the evaluation is optional, but we do appreciate feedback about your Checkpoint Learning webinar experience.

What do I do if I need technical support or want to ask a content related question during a webinar event?

In WebEx, technical issues and content related questions are addressed through the Chat Box (rather than the Q&A box as used in the past). Type your question into the Chat Box on the lower right hand side of your screen and be sure to send your question to All Panelists. Using the drop-down list, just above and to the left of the Chat Box ‘send button’, select ”ALL PANELISTS” and your question will be sent to the webinar moderator, and to the presenter. Please feel free to ask content related questions during the presentation. We always try to get to as many participant questions as we have time for, either during or at the end of the presentations. If you experience technical issues that your moderator is unable to help you resolve, additional technical support is provided by WebEx Support at 866.229.3239 Option 1 or online at Support.WebEx.com/MyAccountWeb. For immediate assistance you can also call Checkpoint Learning Customer Service at 800.431.9025.
