COMING SOON - Newly Designed Online Learning System

We have outgrown our current online learning platform and will soon be upgrading to a new system. To benefit our users, we elected to delay the shutdown of our current system to minimize the transition time between our old and new systems. At noon [12:00 PM (CST)] on April 19th the current system will stop accepting new users, and existing users will be unable to enroll in new courses. You will have until noon [12:00 PM (CST)] on April 25th to complete any remaining courses and purchase, download, or print course certificates. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work hard to provide you with high quality professional development training.
