During the 2018-2019 school year, SSWAA will be offering 3 webinars, each available for 1.5 CEUs. In order to improve the service and allow for storage of the webinars, SSWAA has purchased a webinar platform and contracted with a university to provide CEUs.
SSWAA certainly hopes you will attend the live webinar – the best way to receive the information and interact with the presenter and other attendees. But, what if you are unavailable at the time of the live webinar? No worries! You will receive a link to any webinar you purchase and be able to access it after the webinar airs. See the SSWAA website for additional webinar information. www.sswaa.org
