Instructions and Disclaimers

Instructor-led webinars enable busy local officials and staff the training opportunities they need to fit their schedules. Registration is required, and for many classes, space is limited. If an event fills and a waitlist is started, when practical we will try to add another class. RCAP will give local officials and operational staff priority if we are not able to accommodate everyone.

Once registered please note; if the training is more than 45 days out you will not receive a follow-up email. Once within the 45-day window, you will receive the follow-up emails.

To receive credit for contact hours and certificates of completion, you MUST be clicked on and have the webinar page or screen as your only active screen for at least 90% of the webinar. If you click off of this to open and view other webpages or desktop applications, the Webex, GoTo Meeting, or other hosting applications we use can detect and record this in our attendance reports. We submit these reports to Ohio EPA. We recommend you close all other windows and web pages to avoid accidentally clicking on them.

So that your attendance and participation can be accurately calculated, for most online events you will not be able to join more than a few minutes early. All presentations will begin promptly at the start time. Please be sure WebEx is the only open program/application on your computer. Please close all other windows to ensure proper credit for contact hours, if applicable. 

For the best experience, please join us on a stand-alone computer. If you use a phone or a tablet, you should download the WebEx app to your device, and it is required for apple devices. To download the desktop app, go to:
