IECA's educational Webinar Series will focus on the issues affectingIndependent Educational Consultants and allied admission professionals. IECA's monthly webinars will provide professional development covering admission issues in college, secondary school, and therapeutic placements, as well as learning disabilities and broad adolescent issues including depression, anxiety, and more.
Our webinars are designed to meet the needs of Independent Educational Consultants and we believe many school-based counselors will find the topics equally compelling, as well as admission representatives, school administrators, and program and private therapists. The presenters are chosen for their expertise and experience as online instructors. Webinars will be offered live on the second Tuesday of each month at 12:00 noon EST, 9:00 a.m. PST. All sessions will last one hour, including a question and answer segment with the presenter. In addition, IECA will archive all webinars, which will then be available for one year. Those who register for the live broadcast, or for an archived segment, will be able to view the presentation up to three times over the course of the year. For more details, check our webinar FAQs.
Participants must pre-register for each webinar, in advance.
