Blocked Zoom Users
We understand that some users may have company restrictions and firewalls blocking access to the webinar platform, Zoom. If so, we advise using a personal device with the capability of logging into Zoom. If you do not have any way of accessing Zoom, you may participate by dial-in phone, audio only. Please follow these guidelines for phone users. Please note this training is very dependent on visual aids. Participating only via phone audio is not recommended.
