About live webinars

All you need is an internet connection and a device with sound – like a computer, laptop, tablet or phone. If this is your first webinar, you might want to go to the GoToWebinar help page to watch the Attendee Quick Start video (care.citrixonline.com/gotowebinar) before you start. That way you'll know what to expect. We'll email all registrants the webinar link and an access code a few days before the webinar.

Late registrants will receive their link and code as soon as we can process registrations! Please register in advance if possible.

Joining a live webinar is really easy, but don't panic if you fumble a bit and can't "get in" – you'll receive a emailed link so you can watch the webinar later if something goes wrong with your connection.
