Can I earn CEUs for on-demand webinars? 

Yes! The same requirements apply to both live and on-demand webinars offerings.

What is the difference between a live and an on-demand webinar? 

Live webinars are held at a specified date and time. The instructor/speaker will conduct the webinar live and attendees will have the opportunity to interact with the speaker during the Q&A session at the end of the webinar. On-demand webinars are recordings of previously held live webinars. The benefit of this format is that they can be accessed at any time within the window that the on-demand webinar is available. This allows people to attend at a time best suited to them while still earning CEUs.
