How the Audio Distance Learning Works...


Step 1: On the date and time of the Distance Learning, you'll call a special number. You will receive this number in an email from the MFM Office (Karla Nally) the day prior to the call.

Step 2: An operator will answer your call and ask you to provide your unique PIN, your name and company, which were included in the email from the MFM Office the day prior to the call.

Step 3: The operator will connect you to the call. Sit back and listen to the speakers – your line is muted. Q&A will be offered during or at the end of the call. The operator will give instructions on how to ask your questions.


The registration fee paid pays for only 1 phone line/web login. If you share the dialing information with others, you will be responsible for paying for any additional lines used by your company or individuals associated with your company.
