Professional Development Courses


AIHce presents several professional development courses (PDCs) before and after the conference. These courses are formalized learning experiences that, through in-depth instruction by field experts, enhance technical competence and provide practical tools and skills for the modern workplace.

PDCs will be held on Saturday, June 3, Sunday, June 4, and Thursday, June 8 and available as half-, one-, or two-day courses. There is a separate registration fee for each PDC. Boxed lunches are provided for all full-day courses as well as for those who register for two half-day courses occurring on the same day.

Full PDC descriptions are available now in the session search listing.​
