Certificate of Training in Weight Management—Onsite Documents FAQ

  1. Q: What are the onsite documents?

    A: The onsite documents consist of the program agenda and faculty PowerPoint slides that will be presented at the onsite program.  You can also find the required handouts and faculty references in the onsite documents.  A participant list will also be made available for downloading.  Only copies of the agenda will be provided at the onsite program.
     
  2. Q: When are the onsite documents available?

    A: The onsite documents are available approximately one week before the onsite program.  An email with instructions on how to access the onsite documents is sent to the program participants approximately one week before the program. 
     
  3. Q: How do I access the onsite documents?

    A:
    You will access the onsite documents the same way you access the program pre-work materials and program pretest.  Go to www.cdrnet.org and log in to the website.  You must be logged in for the portal to be visible.  Once you log in, go to “portal” in the purple tabs at the top of the screen. Hover over “portal” and then scroll down to “EDU” and click on “EDU.”  The onsite documents for your program will be visible; click “launch course” next to the course to view the documents.  Documents are linked as PDF files for easy printing or downloading. 
     
  4. Q: Do I need to bring the on-site documents with me to the program?

    A:
    Yes. Program participants should bring the faculty slides and handouts with them to the onsite program.  The only documents that are distributed onsite are the program agenda and evaluation forms. 
     
  5. Q: Do I need to print out all of the onsite documents, or can I just download the files to my laptop or mobile device?

    A:
    The best option is to bring a paper copy of the slides and session handouts with you to the onsite program.  Complimentary WIFI is not always available in the conferences room, nor can CDR guarantee access to power outlets in the meeting room.  Should you choose to bring electronic copies of the onsite documents with you to the program in lieu of paper copies, you are strongly advised to download and save the faculty slides in advance of the meeting and to bring a fully charged device.  Please note that viewing the onsite documents on smaller electronic devices such as cell phones are tablets is not ideal; it is best to view them from a laptop computer.
     
  6. Q: Can I download and save the faculty slides and session handouts to my computer?

    A:
    Yes, all of the onsite documents can be downloaded and saved on to your computer or personal device.  Programs are encouraged to download and save the faculty slides and session handouts for access during the onsite program as well as for future reference.  You will have access to the CDR portal for four months following the program, after which the onsite documents will be removed from the online portal.
     
  7. Q: How do I print out all of the onsite documents?

    A: 
    For your convenience, CDR provides two “Quick Print” links on the first page of the onsite documents.  The Quick Print links include all faculty PowerPoints and required handouts for the onsite program, and are available in either a two-slides-per-page or six-slides-per-page format, depending on your preference.  Click on this link to download or print all required PowerPoints and session handouts.  Alternatively, PowerPoints, session handouts, and references are all linked as individual PDF documents, organized by date and time of the presentation.
