Important Notes:

IMPORTANT MESSAGE FOR GROUP REGISTRANTS: We are using a new webinar provider and the procedure for group members logging in on different computers has changed. Webinato will not allow more than one entrance into the webinar room per email address; therefore each group member logging in from a separate computer will need a unique login link from Webinato. If members of your group will be attending the webinar from different computers, please have each person who will be logging in use the Webinato registration link that you will receive in your confirmation email to register with their own email address and receive a customized link to enter the webinar room.

* If you are participating as part of a group, you will need to upload your professional development units (PDUs) manually. This is done by logging into your profile and clicking on "Certification Portal," then "Add PDUs". Participants who register as individuals will have their PDUs automatically uploaded shortly after the conclusion of the webinar.  Group leaders are responsible for distributing the Certificate of Attendance to all group participants. Group registration is not available for On-Demand webinars. 

Email with questions.  

Registration Process

Login, Payment:

To sign up and pay for a webinar, log in as on the ACLP website and go to “My Profile.”  From there, click “Eligible (and registered) events,” locate the “Online” events, and select the webinar. Continue following the registration steps, and select the appropriate group size. Registration opens when a webinar is posted on the ACLP website and closes 30 minutes before the webinar begins.

After registration for a webinar on the ACLP website, you will receive an email from ACLP instructing you to complete your registration through the Webinato site. Click on the link provided in the email to complete your registration. Once you complete your registration, you will receive an email from “Association of Child Life Professionals Events” ( that will include the link that will allow you to enter the webinar room. We recommend adding this email to your email safe list and/or checking your junk/spam folders if you do not receive the invitation email within an hour of the completing your registration. Please note: This is an automated email address and replies to this email will not be delivered. All questions about webinars should be directed to

Access Handouts:

Handouts will be emailed to registrants the day before the webinar. Group leaders are responsible for distributing all handouts to everyone in the group.

Webinar Details:

Helpful Hints

Using Webinato:

Webinato is viewed in an Internet browser, so you will not need to add software to your computer. However, you will need to have Adobe Flash Player in order to view the webinar. Please test your computer in advance to make sure that you will be able to experience the webinar. A quick test is available at

Webinar audio will be provided through your computer’s speakers or through your phone. If you choose to listen over the phone, you will still need to use your computer speakers to hear any videos that play in the webinar room; the phone will only carry the presenters’ voices.

Webinato offers immediate support to webinar participants prior to or during a webinar at During a webinar, this support is also available by clicking the question mark icon at the top right of the screen.

Downloading Resources:

Handouts will be emailed to registrants the day before the webinar. Group leaders are responsible for distributing all handouts to everyone in the group.

PDUs and Certificates of Attendance:

Unless otherwise specified in a session description, participants will receive 1.5 PDUs per webinar for those who attend the entire session. Please note, the software will track and report the time that each registered attendee spends viewing a webinar.

Participants who register as individuals will have their PDUs automatically uploaded within a few days after the conclusion of the webinar. All group participants (other than the group leader) will need to manually upload their PDUs. This is done by logging into your profile and clicking on "Certification Portal," then "Add PDUs."

Certificates of Attendance will be available for download from the webinar room at the conclusion of the webinar. If you are unable to download the certificate, please email to receive a copy. All participants must retain their Certificate of Attendance for their records, as it provides evidence of participation in the webinar in case of audit upon recertification. Group leaders are responsible for distributing the Certificate of Attendance to all members of the group.  In the event that an original Certificate of Attendance is not received or retained by a group participant, ACLP cannot reproduce it because only the group leader’s primary registration, and not individual participant names, is included in the registration information on file with ACLP.

Webinar Proposal Process



The Association of Child Life Professionals supports its members by providing opportunities for sharing their knowledge and expertise with the child life community.  One popular avenue for teaching and learning is through ACLP webinars, which are regularly scheduled throughout the year. If you have a presentation in mind that you think would make a good webinar, you are encouraged to submit a proposal for consideration. 

Webinar Basics:

 Please keep in mind:
  • ACLP webinars are generally 90 minutes long, including about 10 minutes reserved for questions.
  • The content of the webinar must relate to one of the child life domains.
  • If you offer a product or service related to the topic of your webinar, an ACLP webinar is not a platform for selling.
