Education Your Way!
This spring, the EAP will offer continuing education in a virtual format only. 

Fees:
2 Hour Webinars: $75.00 Members / $95.00 Non-members
IEEE PDH: Additional $25.00 per student 

Education Refund Policy:
EAP classes/webinars are held based on projected attendance therefore once a student registers, there are no refunds. However, there are a few exceptions to this policy. If class is cancelled or postponed by EAP, EAP will issue refunds in the case that the new date is not suitable for the student. If an extreme circumstance arises for the student, such as a death in the immediate family, severe illness, etc., a refund will be processed. A decision will be made on a case-by-case basis by the Executive Director. EAP will allow a company to substitute a student (e.g. change the registrant to someone else in the company) without penalty.
