Dale Carnegie live online courses are highly engaging, interactive, and collaborative. Our instructors engage with you through chat, breakout rooms and 'coaching in the moment', delivering the same transformation experience remotely as our in person programs.

1. Why haven’t I received an email with my log in information?

Welcome emails with instructions on how to access the Learning Portal and your course session are immediately sent once you’ve successfully enrolled into a session. If you haven’t received the email, please check your spam folder for an email entitled “Dale Carnegie Live Online: Course Information – Name of your program.”  If it is not there, consider whitelisting our domains or let us know by calling 1-855-820-9200, or email [email protected], and we will resend the email.

If you choose to add your course session to your personal calendar on your computer or mobile device, your ability to see the session information in your current time zone will depend on your computer and/or mobile device settings.

5. How do I download my Participant Manual?

There is usually a participant manual provided for each course.  There may be other materials as well.  We recommend you print your manual prior to attending your session.

7. What is the audio technology used?

We have two audio options for you to connect to your Live Online program:


1. Computer: You can connect using your computer if you have a speakers and a microphone available through VoIP (Voice Over Internet Protocol). There is no phone number to dial, as you can fully participate through your computer system only. All you need to do is test your headset and computer’s audio connection ahead of time to make sure you will be able to hear clearly, and thereby interact with the trainer, producer, and all fellow participants using the chat, whiteboard, and other interactive tools in WebEx.

If you experience difficulty hearing the presenters, please first adjust your computer’s volume and verify your sound/speakers are turned on, or that your headset is properly plugged in. If necessary, disconnect and reconnect (leave and re-enter the WebEx room) as this can very often fix any audio glitches. If you still encounter audio issues, please use the chat function in the WebEx room to request help from the session producer.


2. Phone: Participants connect via telephone – follow the prompts to connect when you join the Live Online session by dialing in to the audio line. A good, clear phone connection is best to make sure you can hear the trainer and producer, and fully collaborate with your fellow participants (a landline is more reliable and clear than a cell phone.) As noted below, please do not attend using a speaker phone as this creates difficulties for the presenter, producer, and your fellow participants.
