This promises to be an engaging and informative day where you can earn a professional learning certificate from the comfort of your home! And you can access the training at your leisure for six months after the event.


Come join the fun! (Yes there will be prizes!) Reserve your spot now, to save $25!

One great feature of an online event is that YOU get to decide the setting that's most comfortable. Break out the standing desk or yoga ball while you watch. Recruit your pets to keep you company. Camp out around the kitchen table with a handful of snacks. Outside on the patio with a stiff iced tea? No judgment here! Has there ever been a more relaxing (or fun!) way to earn a professional learning certificate?

Learn wherever you like.

Lisa Murphy, Diane Kashin, Brenda Robinson, Rob Matthews, Tammy Morris and Stephen MacEachern are top educators in our industry and have so much to share! 


Learn about some of the latest techniques and resources in the ECE world, in a setting where everyone has a front-row seat! Best of all, we've developed an interactive format so you'll have a chance to raise your hand and ask questions.
