  • Easy access to workshops from home or work computers, including mobile devices.
  • Every 60-to-90-minute session is recorded and available for on-demand viewing.
  • Downloadable reference material from recorded sessions.
  • Workshops may include exercises and/or labs.
  • Workshops may be recognized by other institutions for Continuing Professional Education (CPEs) credits.

Up to 100 students may log in to a workshop. Most sessions are offered twice a day to accommodate students working in a broad range of time zones.
