What course formats do you offer?

Surgent offers courses in multiple formats, including self-study and webinar options. Self-study may be completed by utilizing downloadable PDFs, on-demand webcasts or more traditional textbooks.

Are webinar courses live or on-demand?

Surgent’s webinar courses utilize a  group internet-based program, in the form of a live, scheduled web event. Individual attendees may join from any convenient location, or employees may choose to register and attend as a group (See FAQs regarding group attendance requirements for CPE).

What is the format for Surgent’s webinar courses?

While webinar formats may vary, one of the most common is a PowerPoint®-style presentation coupled with a conferencing platform that permits participants to type private questions to the facilitator. 

Surgent’s webinar content is frequently reviewed and updated.

What if I need to review content from a previous live webinar?

CPE webinars are often recorded for rebroadcast in the following week. Follow-up presentations are scheduled, and qualified facilitators are online live to answer questions in every Surgent CPE webinar.

Will I get credit for my course?

After the webinar, please allow up to 24 hours for your certificate generation. You will receive an email notification when the certificate is available for download from your Surgent profile.
