Registration fee is refundable, less a $30 processing fee, prior to October 11. Substitutions and transfers are permitted. If you can no longer attend the program but would like a transfer of your registration, please contact us. Registration confirmations will be emailed. (Be sure to accept email notifications to receive communication for this event).

All attendees who are registered the Friday before the course (October 11) will receive an email that day which will include an access link to the course portal. All course materials are digital and can be accessed as soon as you log in.


Attendees should plan to be available for the course on all three course dates from 10am Central Time to 4:15pm Central Time. Brief (10 to 15 minute) breaks are built in between sessions each day, with one slightly longer break half-way through the day. Because this event is offered nationally and we will have attendees from several different time zones, the longer break may not fall over your lunch hour. There is no specific break for lunch. Please plan accordingly.
