We heard you! You want more classes throughout the year, in more locations near you - and we want to provide that. Our members have told us that access to SCAA education programs at a regional level will help reduce some of the travel-based costs associated with the current options, and we are working to widen the accessibility of our educational programs to increase local access to these programs.

North America Students


SCAA education classes will now be available throughout the year within a network of SCAA Certified Teaching Labs in North America. Every SCAA class that is offered can be applied to one or more SCAA professional Certificate. For more information about SCAA Certificate and Credential programs and to view a list of requirements for each individual program, click here. To find descriptions for all classes in the SCAA Certificate programs, please visit the complete catalog of SCAA Skill Building Workshops.
