IDA Website Spotlight: Webinar Recordings
Friday, July 19, 2019
Each month, February through November, the IDA hosts a live educational webinar. However, we know that not all members are able to attend live due to schedule conflicts or because of limited space for each event. So, as an exclusive benefit for our members, we offer free webinar recordings so you can watch the replay as many times as you’d like! Recordings are typically available within two to five business days after the live webinar. We currently have a library of more than 40 recordings, with another one added nearly every month! Take advantage of this members-only perk to fit continuing education into your busy schedule.

How to Access Webinar Recordings
Webinar recordings can be accessed via both the front-end and back-end of the website. Keep in mind you MUST be logged into an active, dues-paying member account to access the recordings.
First, you can find the page under the front-end ‘Members’ tab. Hover over ‘Continuing Education’. If you are logged into your member account, a sub-menu will appear, and you can click on ‘Webinar Recordings.’
You can also access recordings from the back-end ‘Quick Links’ tab. Once you login to your account, hover over ‘Quick Links’ (the last tab in the menu bar), and click ‘Webinar Recordings.’
Lastly, you can bookmark the page for quick and easy access!
Each of these access methods will direct you to a webpage with an archive of all our previous webinar recordings.
Viewing a Webinar Recording
From the webinar recordings archive page, select the episode you’d like to view. The individual recording page will open in a new tab.
Before you can view the video, you will be prompted to enter a password. This is to prevent any non-members who may come across the recording on another website from being able to watch it without the password. Remember, these webinar recordings are an exclusive member benefit, and therefore the password should not be shared with any non-members.
The password you’ll need for each recording is located below the video frame (see image above). Do NOT use your profile password as that will not work. Enter the password you see on the page into the password field and then click ‘Watch Video.’
The video will then appear. You can click the button to expand the video to full screen. You can pause, rewind, and fast forward whenever you need so feel free to go at your own pace and take notes!
If available, the speaker’s presentation slides will also be linked on this page. Click the link to download and save the slides.
There is no limit to how many times you can view a webinar recording, so come back as many times as you’d like to re-watch your favorite presentations.
Earning Continuing Education Credit from a Webinar Recording
Certified Detailers can earn a maximum of one credit from each webinar recording toward their recertification. Please note that those who received credit for attending a live webinar are NOT eligible to earn additional credit for the same webinar via the recording. Our Certification Specialist will reconcile a recording credit against live webinar attendance, and you will only be granted one maximum credit per webinar.
After you view the entire, one-hour webinar recording, scroll down to the bottom half of the page. You will be prompted to input your contact information (however, it should auto-fill since you are signed in). Then click ‘Begin Survey.’
On the next page, complete the survey as directed and click ‘Complete Survey’. You will then be redirected to a confirmation page.
You will receive a confirmation email from email@example.com as well.
You should also check your Certification Journal to make sure the credit was recorded successfully. Login to your profile, and navigate to the ‘Professional Development’ tab. On the ‘Journal Entries’ tab, you will see all of your earned credits. The webinar recording credit should be labeled as an ‘IDA Recertification Credit’ and show the name of the completed survey.
The recertification credit will expire two years from the date you completed the survey.
These webinar recordings are a valuable, exclusive benefit for IDA members, and we hope you enjoy watching and learning!
