How to Register for Webinars

After selecting a webinar topic from the Events page, follow the appropriate registration procedure below.  After successfully registering, you will receive an email from the workshop facilitator with a link to the online session.
  • First time registrants, select Create Profile.
    • Use a personal email address. Organization email addresses are not recommended.
    • Each registrant should create their own profile. Coordinators should refrain from registering for their staff/volunteers.  The College’s web security impedes multiple registrations from the same URL address.
    • After your Profile has been created, you will receive an email from NorQuest with your account info and a one-time Password. Follow instructions to activate your account and change the password.
  • Returning registrants.  If you have previously attended webinars, you will likely have a Username and Password.
    • Make sure all the contact information in your Student Profile is updated. To update your profile, go to MyQuest on the NorQuest home page (see below).
    • Complete the registration with your Username and Password.
  • Inactive accounts
    • If you have not used your account in the past 18 months…
    • If you are an ex-NorQuest instructor experiencing issues with registration…
    • Contact our admin to recover your information:


What is my Username / User ID?
  • Your User ID is just the name on your @mynorquest email address (not the entire address).
I can’t remember my password.  
I registered but didn’t get the webinar link in my email.
  • If you changed email addresses since your last registration, NorQuest could still be sending information to your old email. Email our admin or the webinar facilitator.
  • Check your Spam / Junk mail folder.
  • A Google Chrome browser works best.
  • Clear the browsing data-- especially if you are using a communal computer.
