The IWC Continuing Ed Workshop program is designed to provide practical information that includes a basic understanding of the topic as well as detailed case studies.

Workshops are presented by experts in the field and are loaded with technical content, not sales information. Each workshop will provide an opportunity for a technical exchange between the students, the instructor and other workshop participants. IWC workshops provide attendees four professional development hours (PDHs) and a certificate of completion.

The fee for workshops is $275.00 each ($325.00 without Conference Registration), with a $100.00 discount for 2 or more.
