Virtual Experience 

CALBO has invested in production resources to ensure your experience at our Virtual Education Week is second to none. Your course will be taught live by a skilled and knowledgeable subject matter expert in front of a live audience in either San Ramon or Ontario.  However; we have added an additional subject matter expert in the classroom to work with our virtual attendees in real-time. Attendees may pose questions through the chat and conversation functions of the course and expect to receive a response in real-time.  This is not a canned experience.

One Week Before Each Course

Please download the GoToWebinar application on your electronic device. Without the application, you will not be able to watch your courses. Every attendee must log into their GoToWebinar classroom with their personalized link and watch the course(s) for credit.

Two Days Before Each Course

You will receive a personalized GoToWebinar link 48 hours before each course you registered to attend. Audio and visual can be accessed with the link. These links are unique to you and may NOT be shared with others. You will also receive unique links to download your course materials as well. Please save the materials to your files as the material links will expire after each course concludes.

The Day of Each Course

You may use your unique link to enter your GoToWebinar online classroom each day at any time after 7:30am. Audio and visual can be accessed with the link. Please consult the conference program for the daily schedule and break times. IMPORTANT: Virtual attendees must log in to their online classroom using their personalized link to WATCH the entire course to receive credit. If you log out or only call into the webinar with audio-only, your attendance is NOT recorded and you will not receive CEUs.

Breaks

There will be plenty of morning and afternoon breaks along with lunch to ensure your ability to stretch and regain focus. Two ten-minute breaks are offered in the morning at 9:00am and 10:15am along with two ten-minute breaks in the afternoon at 1:15pm and 2:30pm. A full hour break is given for lunch from 11:15am – 12:15pm. These timelines are strictly followed in each classroom. IMPORTANT: If attending virtually, please do not log out during the breaks.

Attendance Certificate

Each attendee will receive their attendance certificate electronically, which is also printable, within 48 hours of each course. Each course is approved by the ICC Preferred Provider Program and most courses are approved by American Institute for Architects. For six-hour courses, .6 CEUs will be granted. Attendees must be logged into their virtual classroom and watch the course for the entire duration to receive credit.

Evaluations

Every attendee will receive an online link for each course to complete an online course and instructor evaluation to ensure that the course(s) met your expectations.

Cancellations and Transfers

The cancellation and transfer deadline is 7 days before the start of the event. No changes or transfers can be made after that date, and the registrant is responsible for full payment. No-shows will not be refunded or transferred.
