A webinar allows you to participate in an educational event just by using telephone and Internet. During this kind of online seminar, you can see the speaker in a video image. At the same time you can follow the speaker’s presentation right next to his image.
In addition to participating in currently offered live webinars, you can also order recordings from past webinars – and watch them as needed on your PC. For that purpose we recorded most of the webinars offered in the past years. These recordings are a 1:1 replay of the live webinars, including questions from attendees and answers from the speakers.
Please find an extract of a recorded GMP Webinar here:

Yes, you can ask questions, but only in live webinars of course. During the webinar, you can submit your questions in writing. For this purpose, there is the button "Ask a question".
Is a preliminary test possible?
Yes, for the live webinars we have set up a test page. When you register, you will receive the access data for this, too. Then you can visit the test page any time you like. So you will know whether the technology works. And if there are any problems you can turn to someone on the list of contacts you will receive and who will be able to help you solve possible problems.
What makes the ECA Webinar so special?
For the live webinars these are mainly the following 3 points:
You can see the speaker and the slides at a glance. If you wish to, you can set the speaker's image on "Statue" in order to fully concentrate on the lecture.
You do not have to install any software if you choose the access method "Java".
The Webinars are live! Therefore, you can contact the speaker directly.
Recorded webinars are the perfect alternative or an additional opportunity to get an update on topics and current developments relative to EU and FDA GMP requirements fast and easily without leaving your desk – sort of “on-demand”.
