The CKA will track your virtual attendance. You will receive 3 CECs for every hour you attend, up to a maximum of 30 CECs. This gives participants the opportunity to earn the most CECs in a single event! 
A few days after the event, you will receive a Certificate of Participation.

A few days after the event, you will receive a Certificate of Participation. You must attend to receive a certificate with CECs - or at least login and stay logged in for as long as you wish credits.

Some webinars, those for which the speaker agreed to make their presentation available only, will be available free of charge to registered participants (attending or not). 

If you do not attend, you will not receive a certificate with CECs since credits have to be earned by attending.

 

WHAT TECHNOLOGY DO I NEED TO PARTICIPATE VIRTUALLY?

A desktop computer, laptop computer, tablet, phone or similar device with internet availability so you can access Zoom. The CKA will use the Zoom Webinar platform.

Since there are different time zones, the sessions will be held continuously. There is break time scheduled between each session but there is no lunch break since not everyone is in the same time zone.

Here is the schedule:


WILL I NEED ANY FITNESS EQUIPMENT AND/OR PROPS TO PARTICIPATE?

You do not need any equipment to participate.  There are no active participation sessions in terms of physical activity. The sessions are lectures.

 

WILL I BE ABLE TO SKIP & RETURN IN SESSIONS?

WHY IS THE CKA CHARGING FOR THEIR VIRTUAL EVENT WHEN A LOT OF EVENTS ARE FREE?

Great question.  There are really 3 answers:
1.  We value bringing you the best-in-class education and training presented by top industry experts, innovators and entrepreneurs, who invest their time in customizing their presentation to be able to deliver great virtual learning experiences. 
2. Organizing such an event, even online, brings expenses related to coordination, promotion, administration, online platform, translation and captioning fees.
3.  While many conferences give away education for free, they sell their CECs after the event. CECs will be applied after you attend the event and each CEC has a monetary value.  We want to make it easy for you to earn CECs while at the same time making it easy for you to participate (join in and attend any session you want) and access the sessions the event.
