I received an error message when trying to register. What happened?

One of the most common errors you may encounter while registering is due to the incorrect billing address being entered under “Billing Information.” The address you enter under “Billing Information” must match the credit card billing info. You will be able to enter the attendee information once you complete the checkout process. 

 

My company is paying for me to attend. How do I register myself as an attendee with a company card?

The course registration page will ask for the billing information, which must match the credit card billing info. On this page, enter the name on the credit card and the mailing address for the credit card. For bigger corporations, you may need to contact your Accounting Department to verify the address where the credit card statement is mailed to. Upon completing the purchase, you will be taken to an attendee form where you enter the information for the person(s) attending the course.

 

How can I register multiple attendees?

On the course registration page, you will enter the number of course registrations that you are purchasing. Upon completing the purchase, you will be taken to a page where you enter the information for each person attending the course. It is very important that  this information is completed for each attendee as it provides us with information about the attendee that will help improve the learning experience.

 

I know the attendee form is mandatory. Where is the attendee form?

The attendee form is the last page of the registration process, upon completing the purchase. The attendee form should be completed at the time of purchase. If not, the attendee form will be re-sent to the attendee to fill out.
