Claiming your CLE/CME credits
At the end of the webinar, the CLE number will be posted in the “web chat” feature in Zoom. If you are unable to see the number, we will be required to validate your attendance in order for us to send you the CLE number separately. We must be able to validate your attendance by seeing you on the video to give you the CLE number.

Known Issues with attending a webinar
Missing Zoom Log in Credentials
Although we do send regular reminders to register in advance and send the needed credentials to those registered, sometimes your email filter may block the invite. Check your “Junk Mail” folder or “Spam” folder to see if our emails are being redirected to these folders to ensure that you get the invites.
Missing CLE numbers
We make every effort to ensure that the CLE numbers that you need for recertification are obtained prior to the seminars/webinars. However, the Florida Bar has experienced a delay in processing time. If we do not receive the certification before the seminar, we will provide the CLE numbers to attendees upon receipt. To ensure that you receive the CLE numbers, we must have been able to verify your attendance by seeing you on the video.
