Following each of the Free webinars being presented by BSD, you will receive an email from CANARM with instructions on how you can view each webinar as a recording a second time for free. You will have free access to each of the free webinars for up to 72 hours following the live webinar. This will be especially helpful for the long 3 hour webinar and will allow you to watch the webinar in two parts if you prefer rather than the full three hours at one time. During the 72 hour viewing, the webinars are recorded, not live, so there is no live moderator or ability for Q&A.

Please note: All webinars are only available from CANARM in English at this time. BSD is working on preparing voice/slide translations which will be circulated when completed.
