99-Minute Workshops

How do I register for a 99-Minute Workshop?

You will need to be logged in with your Pro Membership account to enable the registration button on each workshop. Once you’re logged in, just go to Upcoming Events page and click on the workshop(s) you want to register for and click on the green button that says ‘Register’, an email confirmation will be sent to you within a few minutes.

Can I register for more than one 99-Minute Workshop?

Yes you can register for as many 99-Minute Workshops as you want. Each workshop has a limit of 100 attendees, so we ask you to register to the ones you can and want to attend only. This way we avoid someone missing out on a workshop they want to attend.

I’ve registered for a 99-Minute Workshop and haven’t yet received a confirmation email.

An email confirmation should be sent to you within a few minutes from hello@ministryoftesting.com. If you haven’t yet received it, check your spam folder and if it’s not there, contact us on masters@ministryoftesting.com.

When will I get the login instructions for my 99-Minute Workshop?

We will send you the login details for your 99-Minute Workshop 2 to 7 days before the workshop date, so keep an eye out on your emails.

I can't make the 99-Minute workshop I'm interested in, will it be repeated?

Each 99-Minute Workshop repeats 4 times throughout 3 different time zones. We have selected 3 different time zones to evenly split the workshops, which means that you might be able to attend more than one time zone. A good way to check which time zones suit you best is by checking online for the most up to date time zone converter, but we like using this time zone converter.

Will I need to have a microphone and a camera to attend the 99-Minute Workshop?

The 99-Minute Workshops are instructor-led, so you don’t need to have a camera or microphone available to attend the workshop.

My Pro Membership runs out before the workshop date, will I still be able to attend?

No, you need to be a Pro Member on the date of your workshop, so make sure you renew your subscription or purchase another month for when the workshop date is due.

Is there a limit to the number of attendees per workshop?

Most of our 99-Minute Workshops have a limit of 100 attendees per workshop, with some exceptions. For more information on your workshop, check it’s description for more details.

I’ve registered for a workshop and can no longer attend, how can I cancel my registration?

Yes, to cancel your registration, just head over to the 99-Minute Workshop event page, select the workshop you can no longer attend, scroll down the page and press ‘Unregister’. You will need to be logged in with your Pro MoT account to do this.
