VPPPA strives to provide training throughout the year through educational webinars. Since it is not always possible for employees to leave their worksite for a week, these online educational sessions are an excellent alternative. VPPPA webinars are usually one-hour sessions and provide a convenient way for the workforce to continue learning while on the job.
VPPPA webinars are open to members and nonmembers and require access to both a high-speed internet connection and a phone line. Registration is per computer, so VPPPA encourages attendees to invite coworkers to sit in.
