I am unable to attend the webinar, will a recording be available?

Some of our webinars are recorded and available on demand following the live broadcast. This will be stated if it is the case. An email will be sent to all delegates booked for the webinar within 24 hours of the live broadcast.

Alternatively, if the webinar was from one of the Faculties or Communities that you are a subscriber of, then you can access the recording by visiting www.icaew.com. Please ensure you are logged in before selecting 'Groups and Networks', followed by the Faculty or Community you are a subscriber of. The technical resources page associated with your subscription will usually display a 'Webinar and Videos' section for you to access.

For out CPD essentials events, you either have the choice to watch live or gain access to the recording, but not both. You can view our CPD events here.

What time zone applies to the webinar times listed? 

All webinars are set to UK standard time unless otherwise stated.

I have the link to the webinar but it is not accepting my email address to login?

Please contact us for assistance.

If the problem cannot be resolved, if the event is recorded we will ensure that you are sent a link to the recording after the webinar has taken place.
