    Hi I just finished the webinar "Understanding the scams seniors face" it was a great webinar. Thanks for hosting this important topic. I didn't see the link to do the survey at the end of the webinar so I could receive CEU's. Can you assist me in this. I usually view the recorded ones and am prompted at the end to do the survey. thanks!

      Glad you found the webinar useful, Mary-Ellen, someone will look into your CEU question and get back to you via email. Thanks!

    I have done two CEUs and have not received either of the certificates. (October 7 and November 11, 2015) Can someone look into this for me? Thank you.

      Hi, Dawn, Sorry for the delay. I'll see if I can discover the hang-up and ask someone to get back to you ASAP.

    Good Morning, I am writing regarding a concern with receiving my CEU certificate. I watched the "Solving Communication Issues Within Families" CEU on 2/12 and submitted the survey. I have still yet to receive my CEU.

    Hello, We are looking for information regarding Educational Webinars and if outside vendors can participate in HCAOA webinars. Can you tell us if that is possible and if there is a cost involved? Thank you, Elan Elvaiah

    I note that these are "professional caregiver seminars". As a family member / caregiver / Social Service Worker - Gerontology am I allowed to join in on the seminar itself - I don't require other certification. Are HISC CAREGivers considered eligible for these training sessions - it would be a great resource for them.
