I registered for a virtual session. Now what?
In a virtual session you will get all the information you would from an in-person session. The difference is that our virtual sessions are held online. Virtual sessions will be 4 hours a day over two or three days. You will be able to ask questions, interact with your instructor or other participants, answer polls and raise your hand.
Most virtual sessions will begin at 12 p.m./12:30 p.m. EDT, but times may vary so pay attention to the published schedule and promotions of public sessions.
Falmouth virtual sessions use the Zoom platform.
You do not have to have a Zoom account to attend a Zoom training or meeting. You will be prompted to download the software, once you have clicked on the link that you have been provided. You may also wish to create an account, but that is not required to participate in a Zoom meeting.

A CEU, or Continuing Education Unit, is a unit of credit equal to 1 hour of participation in an accredited program designed for professionals with certificates or licenses to practice various professions. Falmouth virtual training qualifies for CEUs just as Falmouth in-person training does (.6 CEUs per instructional day).
You will receive a confirmation email from Falmouth which will include pertinent information, such as the scheduled time of the session or any pre-class assignments. Occasionally, however, customers may not receive the emails because of their companyís email security settings, a spam blocker, or an incorrect email address. If you registered but didnít get your confirmation email the day after registration, please notify Customer Care at 1-800-992-4489. We will make sure you have everything you need before your session.
