About Training Courses
IAIA pre-conference training courses are presented primarily by IAIA members. The courses are open to all participants but require advance registration and payment.

IAIA15 pre-conference training courses will be held from 09:00 - 17:00 on Saturday, 18 April, and Sunday, 19 April. The courses will be held at the congress center.

IAIA's 2-day courses cost US$475. One-day courses are US$275. This fee includes course materials, light lunches, and coffee breaks. Participants in the training courses who are not registered for the IAIA conference will be assessed an additional US$75 fee. Course fees must be paid in full before you will be enrolled in the training course.

Please register early! Courses will be cancelled if they do not reach the minimum number of paid participants by 28 February 2015.

Minimum/maximum class sizes are noted. If the training course for which you have registered does not meet the minimum number by 28 February, IAIA HQ will notify you and provide refund information or offer to transfer you to another course.  Course registration after 28 February is possible but is subject to availability, instructor consent, and receipt of payment.

If you must cancel, your course registration fee will be refunded minus a US$75 administration fee and contingent upon a written notice of cancellation received in HQ by 30 March 2015. After 30 March, no refunds will be issued.
