Training

Training is a fundamental priority of the IACA. We offer three different types of training courses: in-person, online and webinars. 

All IACA classes award a certificate of attendance or completion for those students who attend/pass. We will not send certificates for in-person or online classes until we have received payment.

Each class has information regarding the difficulty level/intended audience. These are guidelines only to ensure you have the best experience but are not rigid requirements. We will not be checking your experience level prior to enrollment.  

These classes are $395 for members and $445 for non-members. We provide in-person training as requested by local agencies/regional associations. If you’d like to bring a particular class to your area, please review the hosting requirements

Note: In person instruction is currently on hold. Instead, we offer classes in a “live online” format. We currently have no “live online” or in-person classes scheduled. 

All 12-week classes are structured the same and cost $395 for members and $445 for non-members. Students should expect a time commitment of 3-5 hours per week, per class to gain a pass grade. All courses will be graded as a pass/fail. They are not self-paced; each class will advance as a group. Students can login anytime to work as needed. We will use a variety of ways to allow for student participation and interaction.

Webinars are 1-2 hr long sessions, usually held once a month, via our GoToWebinar account that can either be stand-alone topics or a series of topics that connect from one to the next. The sessions can be taken independently, but for a webinar series, the material builds on itself as the year goes on so we encourage people to take the whole series. Each webinar costs $10 for IACA members, $20 for non-members. If a session is free, it will be noted in the description. Some (but not all) webinars are recorded and can be viewed by IACA members after 45 days have passed from the original air date.
