Professional development right from your desk!

Live and recorded webinars are a quick and convenient way to expand your mind and learn new skills without leaving your desk. There's no travel or time out of the office required - all you need is a computer and a telephone. Through the virtual learning environment that WICT provides its members, you are able to interact in real-time with recognized subject matter experts in leadership and management who will help you enhance your professional competencies.

Since tuning in live isn't always an option, WICT records each of its webinars, and links to the recordings are made available to WICT members through WICT.org, our online community.

The schedule of live sessions for the upcoming year will be posted soon on the website at WICT.org. Stay tuned for more information and be sure to register early, because space is limited and each session tends to fill quickly.
