Virtual JETC Frequently Asked Questions

What is the status of the 2020 JETC due to COVID-19?

JETC 2020 is now be a Virtual event.  Education and General Sessions have been redesigned to be held virtually. 

 When will the Virtual JETC take place?

Most sessions will take place May 27-29, 2020. There may be some “preview” sessions held prior to this – stay tuned!

Please visit the VJETC schedule-at-a-glance and sessions pages for detailed information.

 What time zone are the sessions listed?

All scheduled events are EDT

How did you determine which sessions to offer at the Virtual JETC?

Our Virtual JETC Education & Training sessions are a result of survey responses from speakers willing to offer their content in a virtual environment. We focused on technical topics so we could still offer the educational value.

Will I be able to watch recordings of the sessions if I cannot watch them in real time?

Yes. All sessions will be recorded so registrants can watch at a time most convenient for them.  You must register in order to access the recordings – they will not be accessible on a complimentary basis to those who do not register.  If you register for One Track, you will only be able to see the sessions in your track on demand.

Will I be able to download the recordings after Virtual JETC?

No.  You will be able to watch the sessions from the Attendee Service Center but the sessions cannot be downloaded.

Will I be able to earn PDH credit by attending the Virtual JETC?

 

Yes! PDH credits will be available for all education and training sessions.

I booked a hotel room via the JETC housing site. How do I cancel my reservation?

If you reserved a hotel room through the official JETC room block, there is nothing you need to do; SAME and Connections Housing will cancel your reservation for you and you will receive an acknowledgement of such. As no deposits were collected, no money will be refunded.

If you booked a room outside of the block, unfortunately, SAME cannot be of assistance. You are responsible for cancelling that reservation on your own.

No further action is required from you in regard to your hotel reservation.  If you have questions, please contact Connections Housing via email at SAME@ConnectionsHousing.com.

Should you wish to have your hotel reservation reinstated, please contact Connections Housing at your convenience.

*If you have been contacted by any company offering any type of Attendee list, it is Spam and not authorized by SAME.*
