NEW POLICY: Webinars provided by NYSFDA are intended to be viewed over a computer, smartphone, and/or tablet. In order to obtain credit for the webinar, you must be logged into GoToWebinar for at least 50 minutes of the webinar. If you are unable to log in and instead use the phone call only feature, you will need to notify NYSFDA AND provide proof of being on a phone call for at least 50 minutes. The phone call only feature does not allow you to ask questions of the presenter and therefore will be counted as a non-live credit.

Reminders: As of April 1, 2022, to receive credit for NYSFDA webinars you must pre-register through your membership portal or over the phone. If you do not, you will not receive credit. If multiple people from your funeral firm are looking for credit for any of the webinars offered, everyone should register individually. Or, if you'd like assistance processing a group registration, call Michelle at 800.291.2629. This will help NYSFDA process credits even faster, ensuring your profiles are up-to-date. Many thanks in advance for your help!

NYSFDA webinars are considered LIVE CEU credits.
