HTANSW's online events are conducted through Zoom. System or device requirements to participate in a Zoom meeting are minimal. Full details are available here.

Participants will need a reliable internet connection and a relatively recent computer or device that allows access to a microphone, speaker and video. Mobile device users may need to download a Zoom app before joining a meeting. Ensure that any network or system internet controls allow participation OR use a personal computer.

Members Only: Webinars will be limited to HTANSW members only. A current year HTANSW member number is required for registration.

Capacity: Most online events will have a limited capacity. Every effort will be made to repeat events where there is high demand.

NESA Registration: When an event is NESA endorsed, participants who wish to register NESA accredited hours must provide their NESA number when registering.
