Attention BTS Webinar Participants!

BTS has been offering free, relevant and easily accessible training to its attendees for many months now. All of our courses are taught by professionals that kindly share their knowledge and volunteer their time. Together, we have offered more than 100 webinars on dozens of topics, while obtaining a great deal of positive feedback from participants.

That said, we are receiving an increasing number of requests asking us to browse our digital archives to generate certificates of attendance for individuals whom do not recall how many webinars they attended, which webinars they attended, or when. Please understand that we do not have the time or energy to manage attendance for each of our hundreds of participants.

For this reason, if you desire a certificate of attendence in the future, we kindly ask that you contact us via email at everythingcsep@gmail.com. In your email, please provide us with the official certification link given at the close of the webinar session for each certificate that you want. (The official link provides us with the title, time and date of your attendence). In the unlikely event that the link does not function, provide us with the precise date and title of the webinar you attendeded. With the latter information, we can independently verify your attendance manually and generate a certificate for those who participated.

We apologize for the inconvenience and appreciate your understanding.
