Tech Check(s)
We will schedule Tech Check(s) prior to each seminar. This Tech Check will be for anyone unfamiliar with Zoom to do a test run where they can dial in to do a quick check that their equipment is working correctly with Zoom. THIS TECH CHECK IS RECOMMENDED FOR ANYONE THAT HAS NOT USED ZOOM BEFORE OR HASN’T USED IT WITH THE EQUIPMENT THEY PLAN TO USE DURING THIS SEMINAR.

Managing Hazardous Material Regulations Technical Seminar Zoom Seminar:
 
Dates for these seminars are listed on registration form HEREAttendees should only register for one date as all these seminars are the same class with the same course approval number.

All attendees will need the following equipment to participate in this seminar:

  • Each person will their own device with a camera and microphone (no shared devices). Laptops and tablets work well. Mobile smart phones are ok as well. Desktop computers will need a working camera and microphone (these present the most challenges because many are not set up with cameras).
 
  • Each person would need their own email address that is exclusive to them (no shared email addresses). If you do not have an email address of your own, please create one on the internet. Gmail.com, Outlook.com or Yahoo.com are three of many free email providers.
 
  • Each person will need a phone # that we would be able to contact them at during the session. Please do not give the office number for this. We need a phone number that will be near you during the seminar in case the moderator needs to immediately get in touch with you.
 
  • Each person will also need to include their student ID # on the registration form so that their attendance can be reported to the SFMs Office.
