    A press release...

    CEwire2017 had a successful rollout on 1/28/17. The 40 hours of on line COPE approved courses were attended live by nearly 1000 ODs who took advantage being interactive with the course instructor attending in real time. There was robust questions and answers during the course and afterwards.The Exhibit Hall offered major vendor discounts and will remain open for the duration of the courses,

    which remain “In Demand” through 5/1/17.

    For additional information www.CEwire2017.com

    For those who participated in the live sessions, do you wish to share any comments? Any courses stand out?

    There is still 3 months for ODs to join to take advantage of eduction and some great vendor discounts.

    Not very useful when the sessions shut down at 9:00 pm PST and the screen goes white. Three nights wasted already.

    Hi Michael -- i'm not sure what you're talking about here. The system is available 24/7, i'm on the west coast and logged into it right now.

    If you are having a technical problem with a course, shoot an e-mail to support, they'll handle it quickly.

    Thanks,
    Adam

    A follow up to this issue.

    There was no break in general service on CEwire2017. The programs are available 24/7.

    According to the the tech administrator for the programs most likely there was a high use of bandwidth in Dr McDermott's area during the hour that he tried to log on. if that happens to you, try later when the lines are not tied up.

    This is the final few days to finish up the courses and take the quiz.

    Share with us what you thought of CEwire2017. Any areas we can improve? Are there areas not covered you wish to have included for CEwire 2018?

    Keep in touch.

    I just wanted to say I really appreciate CE Wire 17, I'm sure it was a lot of work to put together but it is a great way to take CE. I've watched 15 classes so far and am heading up to my quiet mountain cabin to try and make it to 20 hours over the weekend while they are still available. I have never had any significant technical issues logging in...Anyone else approaching the 20 class mark?

    Please clarify what you mean.

    The course list and speakers are available. What will vanish is the ability to take the course and exam. In addition, the exhibit will no longer be available.

    If anyone wants to take advantage of the offered discounts do not delay.

    Is that's what's been happening to me, too, late evenings? It suddenly stops, goes to the white screen with some blurb I can't remember, and I have to exit completely and log in again.

    Must be a lonely hour in your community where everyone goes on line at once.

    HA! 9pm and it happened AGAIN.
    Here is the link:http://event.vconferenceonline.com/vconference/loader.aspx
    White screen says "Object moved to here", here is blue so click on it to get to "here" and it does nothing. I have to log in again, just a waste of time and a PITA.

    Complete courses- the courses I watched and passed the exam for. Will the tab that takes you to this list still be available? I ask because in the event of an audit my state board does not accept oe tracker certificates.

    Editor's note: checking with the CEwire2017 tech administrator for the most accurate answer

    Yes, you will be able to access your certificate by clicking on the "Certificate" tab at the top of https://www.vconferenceonline.com/microsite/html/event.aspx?id=1260.

    Paul, Adam,

    Is there some way to print easily readable screenshots of the pages of some of the presentations?
