Important Notes:

  • Register for courses through the IPAI Student Portal (click the "Account Login" button above).
  • Registration for most courses closes one week before the start of the workshop. Check the Student Portal for exact dates.
  • There are no hotel blocks for workshops.
  • There is no formal check-in; your instructor will distribute a sign-in sheet.
  • Exams are available for some workshops courses, but they must be taken online.
  • No coffee or refreshments will be served. Students are welcome to bring their own beverages. Please plan accordingly.
  • A one hour lunch will be taken each day around noon. There are many sit down and fast-food restaurants within a few minutes of each workshop location.
  • You must attend the entire class to receive credit. Students arriving late or leaving early will not be given credit for taking the course.
  • See IPAI Academic Policies for a full list of policies and expectations.
