WPS GHA offers three types of events for live training, to allow maximum provider participation. These include:
- Seminars, presented in person by our experienced Provider Outreach and Education staff. These typically last a half or full day.
- Teleconferences, topic-driven education and/or open question and answer format. These typically run for 60-90 minutes.
- Webinars, presented live online in an audiovisual format, allowing providers to view slide shows, listen to the presenter, and ask questions.
Where can I see a listing of all WPS GHA's live events coming up?
To see a listing of live events please go to WPS GHA's Live Events page. On this page you will see all seminars, teleconferences, and webinars we have open for registration. These offerings are sorted by type of event and date. From this page you will also be able to see the city and state a seminar is being held, the time of our teleconferences and webinars, and what jurisdiction and provider type the event is intended for.
How do I register for a live event?
If something interests you, simply select the title of the event and you will be able to see a full description of the event, including who the main instructor will be and how many seats are available. If you would like to register for the event, select the radial button next to Register and then add it to your cart. Then you may either complete your registration by "Checking Out" or continue browsing through our events and add more to your cart.
Does WPS GHA charge for its education?
WPS GHA offers all its education free of charge except for seminars. We charge a small price for our face-to-face seminars to help cover travel costs, facility rental, and materials. We use careful calculations factoring in all these elements to help us determine the price of each seminar.
Is there anything I need to do once I've registered for a live event before I attend?
Yes! Once you've registered for an event you will receive two emails. One is confirmation of your registration for the event. The other is asking you to log in to the Learning Center to complete your training course. If you select the link provided in the email, it will automatically log you in (this link will only automatically log you in once) and take you to your Learning Center dashboard. Once there, find the course under the Not Started tab, select the tile, and select the link provided to complete the pre-assessment.
Why do I need to take a pre-assessment before attending the live event?
Almost all our live events will have a pre-assessment for you to take before you attend the live event. Your answers to this assessment will help the instructor know what areas of information to concentrate on during the training. Once you've taken the pre-assessment, a link containing all the information you need for the live event will activate.
My co-worker wants to attend also. Can I complete a registration for both of us?
No. Each person wishing to attend an event needs to have a profile set up in the Learning Center and complete a separate registration. This will allow each registrant the ability to earn a Certificate of Achievement.
Is there a way for me to pay for multiple registrations for a seminar at once?
Each person may register and pay for multiple seminars at once, but there is not a way to pay for multiple attendees at once using PayPal.
What type of payment does PayPal accept?
PayPal accepts all major credit and debit cards. If you or your company has a PayPal account, you may also connect a bank account to your PayPal account and have the seminar fee taken out of your bank account.
What if my only option for payment is mailing a paper check?
Through the Learning Center, registration cannot be completed until we receive payment. If you need to send payment via paper check, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with the Reference Code of the course in the subject line. We will send you a Payment Form to mail in along with your check; however, seating is not guaranteed until payment is received. To speed along the registration process once we receive your paper check, please make sure everyone wishing to attend the event has a profile set up in the Learning Center and include their email on the Payment Form.
What happens if I mail a paper check and the seminar capacity is reached before you receive it?
This may happen and is why we highly encourage you to pay for the seminar using PayPal so you can guarantee your seat. If capacity is reached before we receive your check, then we will mail you a check for a full refund.
