Due to the changes in personal and professional policies that have been affected by the COVID 19 pandemic, we have cancelled several in person classes and halted our educational schedule.  Headquarters has taken up the daunting task of creating a safe virtual reality space, so that our members can continue meeting their training and certification needs.  So how do we move forward?

If you need a class, headquarters has a calendar of virtual classes that are coming up.  They are located at IRWA Virtual Classes Calendar.  Please note that the current maximum attendance capacity for these classes are 20 students

If time is not on your side and you cannot wait for a scheduled VR class or if a class has reached full capacity prior to your registration, then there are several courses that can be taken on demand.  They can be accessed by going to IRWA U.

*When you are registering for these virtual and on-demand classes, please make sure to identify yourself as a chapter member*

If your company would like to host a closed/ private course, we will be happy to work with you on scheduling the instructor and help coordinate the class.  Just send us an email.  https://irwachapter36.org/Education

For the 2020 – 2021 year, we are happy to have the following individuals volunteer their time for the Education Committee.

Chapter EDC Coordinator – Gina Phalen
Chapter EDC 3rd Year – Lauren McCarthy
Chapter EDC 2nd Year – Dorrien Himes
Chapter EDC Chair – John Bennett

How to Register

There are several ways you can register. To take advantage of discounts that are only available to Chapter 36 members, fill out the registration form in the links above and send it to the listed course coordinator. Region 2 Young Professionals also receive a discount on Chapter 36 courses and to receive it, you must fill out the registration form in the links above and send it to the listed course coordinator. You can register online through the International Education page but you will not receive any Chapter 36 discounts if you do. Where the registration form references "member tuition" that refers to the tuition rate that all IRWA members receive, not the discount that you get for being a member of Chapter 36. Not all chapters offer discounts and those that do have varying discounts, so International cannot credit you with discounts through their registration website.

Are we providing the classes that you need? What classes do you need for your recertification, SR/WA, specialty certification, or to help perform your job? If the classes that you need are not being offered, reply to our education chair.

Discounts and Fees

In addition to the reduced tuition rate for being a member of the IRWA, Chapter 36 members qualify for additional discounts, but you MUST send your completed registration form to the course coordinator listed for the class. No discounts are available if you register through the International education page. The following class discounts are available if you qualify. Chapter 36 members receive a $50 discount for one-day classes or an $85 discount for multi-day classes. Region 2 YPs (under the age of 40) also receive an additional $50 discount for on-day classes or an $85 discount for multi-day classes.
