For cases where the Group-Live Internet is being broadcast into a meeting room with several participants (typically a large monitor or projector screen), Clear Choice Seminars will have a designated supervisor at the participant location complete a sign-in sheet and then sign that sheet to attest to the attendance of the participants and that completed document must be received by Clear Choice Seminars, Inc. before issuing any CPE Certificates to the participants from that location.
