This online course is a terrific value for IHEA members and non-members alike, considering no travel expenses are involved and there is no time out of the office.  Take advantage of the online tools provided and benefit from the ability to learn almost anywhere.  A former online student remarks, “Because of balancing an extremely busy workload and family life, I am not able to
be on a regular schedule or take time in the evening to travel to a class. The advantage for me is that I can check in when time permits and still stay up-to-date on all activities. The course information is directly related to my work and I found it to be very beneficial.”

Registration for the Fundamentals course is now open through April 6, at  Click the Training and Events tab on the top menu bar then scroll down to Online Course.  Cost for IHEA members is $700 or one member voucher, and cost for non-members is $875, which includes an electronic course handbook, course instruction, quizzes and projects, class forums and the opportunity to contact the instructor throughout the course.  Printed materials are available for an additional fee.
