Register for Webinar or Lecture Hall for CE Credit or Certificate of Attendance banner

To receive continuing education credit or a certificate of attendance, pre-registration through the DSHS TRAIN Texas Learning Management System is required. Whether participating in the Lecture Hall (K-100) in Austin or via webinar, each individual wanting CE credit or a certificate must first register in TRAIN Texas. See Accessing TRAIN Texas and Frequently Asked Questions  and TRAIN Texas Quick Reference Guide (.pdf).

Registration in TRAIN Texas closes at 9:00 a.m. on the day of the session and it is best if participants register by 5:00 p.m. the day before a session.

Don't need continuing education credit or a certificate of attendance? See the expedited webinar registration instructions.

Please note: CE credit is only available for those attending the live event, not the recording after the presentation.

Are you a first-timer to Grand Rounds? What is TRAIN Texas anyway?

TRAIN Texas is a web-based system that allows you to manage your training records. It is available 24/7 through the internet and it is free. In addition, employees who work in one of the Texas HHS state agencies (DSHS, DFPS, DARS, DADS, HHSC) can have their completed Grand Rounds training added to their CAPPS student transcript once their attendance has been verified. See Accessing TRAIN Texas and Frequently Asked Questionsand TRAIN Texas Quick Reference Guide (.pdf).

Each Grand Rounds presentation has a unique course ID number and you have the option of registering to attend the live event at the:

  • Lecture Hall (Room K-100) in Austin at 1100 W. 49th St. (see map) or
  • via live webinar.

Is there a webinar option? Are there webinar group viewing locations?

The webinar option is available for participants who prefer to participate remotely instead of attending in the Lecture Hall at the DSHS main campus. Participants will view the slide presentation via the Internet and hear the speaker’s voice either through their computer speakers/headset or telephone (not a toll-free call). Webinar participants may view the webinar individually from their own offices or with a group at a pre-established webinar group viewing location.

For detailed instructions about participating via webinar see Webinar Instructions (.pdf).

Whether viewing individually or at a webinar site, each individual must first register in TRAIN Texas to receive continuing education credit or a certificate of attendance. Registration in TRAIN Texas closes at 9:00 a.m. on the day of the session and it is best if participants register by 5:00 p.m. the day before a session. However, if you were not able to register and would still like to participate, you may still participate by either viewing:

  • At a pre-established webinar group viewing location after signing in with the session monitor or
  • At a personal computer with an individual who has already registered. You will need to have them type your name into the webinar question box at the beginning of the session.

I missed pre-registration. What do I do now? Can I still attend?

If you were not able to register in TRAIN Texas and would still like to participate, you may either:

  • Attend the event in the Lecture Hall (K-100) in Austin after signing in (see map);
  • Participate in a webinar at a pre-established webinar group viewing location after signing in with the session monitor; or
  • Participate in a webinar at a personal computer with an individual who has already registered. You will need to have them type your name into the webinar question box at the beginning of the session.

Is there an expedited registration process if I do not need continuing education credit or a certificate of attendance?
