    Webinar participants should check their computer and headset ahead of the webinar by using the website that follows. This site will automatically check to see if you have the up-to-date Java application (necessary) on the machine you will be using. Check this in advance of the first webinar session (you may need your local IT staff to download the free application) as this type of technical assistance cannot be provided during webinars. The system requires Java 6 (Internet Explorer's security settings may block this file from downloading and running on your computer.) You will also need to check your audio at this site using the audio set-up wizard (see step 2 below).

    Step 1: Tells you if you have or need the small Java application (also allows you to download it if you need it.)

    On some computers, you need to click to allow the download. Click on the top bar to download file (this will take a few minutes).
