Synergist Webinars

Synergist Webinars are presentations by sponsoring companies on topics of importance to industrial hygiene and occupational health and safety professionals. Neither AIHA nor The Synergist endorses, supports, or verifies the webinars’ contents or expressed opinions.

There are three types of Synergist Webinars:

  • Educational: a traditional webinar format in which a presenter delivers prepared material on a topic of interest to the IH/OEHS community. These presentations are typically 45 minutes long followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. AIHA updates webinar participants’ educational transcripts to reflect their attendance. Participants can use their transcripts for certification maintenance (1 contact hour for a 60-minute webinar).

  • Town Hall: similar to an educational webinar, a Town Hall presentation is created from questions submitted by IH/OEHS professionals. These presentations are typically 60 minutes long. AIHA updates webinar participants’ educational transcripts to reflect their attendance. Participants can use their transcripts for certification maintenance.

  • Product Demo: a short presentation of practical tips for using a specific product, similar to the demonstrations that take place at conference exhibits. These presentations are 20 minutes long followed by a 10-minute Q&A. AIHA does not update participants’ educational transcripts for Product Demos.

Attendance at all Synergist Webinars is free.

Important information for Synergist Webinar participants: The Synergist team updates educational transcripts to reflect participation in Educational and Town Hall Webinars approximately once per month (on or around the 20th of each month). We update transcripts only for individuals who have an AIHA.org account.

These updates include participants who have watched recorded webinars. The transcript update process has a manual component and can take up to 3–4 weeks to complete. Please take this timeframe into consideration when planning to participate in Synergist Webinars to meet recertification deadlines. Webinar participants will receive an automatic email when their transcripts have been updated. 

We do not update transcripts for participation in Product Demos.

To ensure that their educational transcripts are updated properly, AIHA members should register for Synergist Webinars with the primary email address they have on file with AIHA.

Please email the Synergist staff with questions.
