What Equipment Do I Need?

AFCC recommends using a desktop or laptop computer to take full advantage of Zoom’s capabilities. Not only will this provide a better viewing experience, it will permit access to features not available on the Zoom app on tablets and smartphones. A stable internet connection is imperative for the best viewing experience. If you lose internet service, you may call in to the training (call-in numbers will be included in your confirmation emails) and follow the slides, which are sent in advance of each program. If you need assistance, please call the AFCC office at 608-664-3750.

A Zoom account is not required if you are simply joining Zoom as a participant. It may, however, be simpler to sign on if you have an account. Please note that you must sign on from your own Zoom account. If you use a Zoom account that is registered in someone else’s name, your attendance will not be recorded and AFCC will not be able to issue you a certificate of attendance. To ensure you receive proper credit, use a Zoom account associated with the same email address you use for your AFCC profile. You can sign up for a free Zoom account at
