To register, click on the “AT Series Registration” button in the top menu of the IMN homepage: iowamasternaturalists.org . Registration closes Sept 21.
Starting Sept 21, registrants will receive a link (via email) to that week’s online presentation. Registrants can view the presentation any time during the week, but the link to that week’s presentation will expire at the end of that week. A new link to a new presentation will be sent out each subsequent week.
If you want your participation in this educational series to count toward your Advanced Training (AT) requirement, you can opt to take a short quiz designed to confirm your participation. At the end of each week you will receive a link to a quiz over the preceding week’s presentation. If you do not want the AT hours, it is fine to view the presentations, but not take the weekly quizzes. Upon completion of the relevant quiz, each presentation can be counted as 1 hour of AT. There are 4 presentations in this series so you may earn a maximum of 4 AT hours by participating in this series.
