How do I register for my courses?

 

When you register for the meeting, you will be instructed to sign up for your courses at the time of checkout.

Can I change courses after I’ve signed up?

 

Yes, you will just need to log back into your registration confirmation and adjust your courses directly on the registration website.  You may do this up to the day of the course without penalty but will be subject to availability of space in the course.  

Can my associate become trained on Solea at the User Group Meeting?

 

Yes, un-certified associates should register for the meeting as Untrained Solea Associates. There will be a total of 8 available slots for new users to be trained at the Solea User Group Meeting. The group will train on Friday, May 29th and, as certified users, will be free to take any course of their choosing offered on Saturday, May 30th.  Registration will be on a first come, first served basis.

Are there any course pre-requisites?

 

Courses that receive a certification will require pre-work.  An e-learning link will be made available to all attendees registered for a certification course prior to the meeting. All modules must be completed before arrival at the Solea User Group Meeting.

How do I receive CE credits for attending a course?

 

When you attend a CE eligible course, your badge will be scanned into the classroom and out of the classroom, and you will be required to sign to verify your attendance. All attendees must arrive at the class within 15 minutes of the start time and stay until the end of the course.  Following the meeting, you will receive a certificate outlining each of the courses that you have taken, and the CEs obtained at each course you attended.

Who do I contact if I don’t receive the CE certificate two weeks following the Solea User Group Meeting?
