Zoom Tech Support

We will be using Zoom for all the educational sessions, and we strongly encourage you to use your computer or tablet in order to get the most out of each class. If you are unfamiliar with the technology, or wish to refresh your skills to make sure you get the most out of the sessions, please register for a training HERE.

Once you register for a class, please review these Zoom instructions. You will need to download Zoom, and test your video and audio settings, so please review the instructions in the days leading up to your workshop.
