CDHA Professional Development online

Posted by CDHM INFO On June - 25 - 2010

The CDHA now offers, in addition to several online courses, professional development webinars and discussion forums online.

A webinar is a 1-hour live and interactive, or on-demand, online professional development session which typically includes a 45-minute PowerPoint presentation followed by a 15-minute Q & A session with the speaker.  Participants may submit their questions before or during the live session. The on-demand session is the recorded version of the live session, available to dental hygienists, members and non-members, 24/7 for a predetermined period of time.

Dental hygienists attend and participate in the webinars from the comfort of their home, and must successfully complete a final examination to receive their certificate of completion. A discussion forum is a 1-hour interactive discussion with a content expert on a predetermined topic. Dental hygienists can submit their questions prior to or during the live forum and may attend the on-demand forum afterwards.
