How to find and register for a webinar

Since webinars are held online, they’re very convenient and flexible for businesses to host and individuals to join. And luckily, there's thousands of engaging options to choose from!

You can join and participate in a webinar by first searching for one relevant to your work or a subject you’re interested in.

And of course, there’s always good ole’ google, which will allow you to directly search for webinars.

Once you find a webinar you want to attend, the next step is registering for the event. Click on the registration or signup link and make sure to fill out the required form.
