AECENL is offering self-paced workshops online! 

Once we receive your registration form you will be sent a username and password for your workshop by e-mail - if you have not received your username and password within 2 weeks of mailing your registration form and fee check to make sure it has not been sent to your junk mail folder - then, if still missing, please call (877) 579-3004 to make sure we received your registration! You can log-in using the link in the sidebar to the left or go to our Links section and use the "AECENL On-Line Workshops" link to take you to the log-in page.

You will have 2 weeks from the date you first log-in to a workshop to complete the workshop at your leisure ... you can do it all in one sitting or visit regularly over the 2 week period. When you successfully complete the workshop you will be able to print off a personalized PL certificate!

When registering for AECENL Online workshops, it should be noted that they can only be completed once as PL hours towards certification renewal.
