Webinars

Most months NAI conducts two webinars—one focused on improving the skills of a field interpreter and the other for individuals that may have positions involving interpretive management, media, planning, etc. Webinars are a low-cost way to learn, obtain continuing education hours for your certification, and/or train your staff for less than two hours on a topic that interests them/your site.

Group Discounts

For our Institutional and Commercial members wishing to purchase attendance for multiple staff members: the first registrant will pay normal pricing and each registrant after will pay $20 for one-hour webinars or $30 for two-hour webinars. To setup the discount, please register your first individual, then email webinars@interpnet.com for a promo code for your additional registrants.

Registration

Registration closes 4 hours prior to the start of each webinar. Login information is generally sent the day before the webinar occurs. If you do have trouble prior to the webinar, call Emily at 970-420-1032 and she will try to assist you.

Continuing Education Hours

If you are wishing to gain continuing education for certification from the webinar, you will need to log into the webinar on your own computer. This allows us to verify your attendance and show the hours on your account. 

Webinar Cancellation Policy

NAI will accept registration cancellations or changes, in writing, up to 5 business days prior to a webinar. Participants can choose to change their registration to a different webinar of equal or lesser value (no fee), or receive a refund ($5 processing fee). Registrants who are unable to participate after the cancellation deadline will be sent a link to the recording of the webinar, when available. Changes and cancellations should be emailed to webinars@interpnet.com.

We conduct our webinars using Adobe Connect and Zoom. Be sure to check your confirmation email for system test information.

What do you do if you’re excited to offer audience-centred, participatory, and dialogic interpretation at your site, but your staff and volunteers are lukewarm about changing? Jacquie will share how she got buy in from her staff to try new techniques. We’ll look at how change models can help and share ideas.
