About ITEA Tutorials:  ITEA offers 4-hour tutorials the day before the Workshop begins (Tuesday). This allows individuals to take advantage of increasing their continuing professional education credits. Tutorials require a separate registration from the Workshop. Instructors receive a complimentary registration to attend the Workshop; a secondary instructor will register at the full rate.

To help you to maintain, develop, or increase your knowledge, problem-solving, technical skills, or professional performance standards, these tutorials are often directly mapped to our CTEP certification and the four domains that have been identified by our Board of Examiners.  As a bonus, ITEA offers members an option to sit for the CTEP exam when choosing two tutorials per event.


Commercial, academic, and government exhibits will play an integral part in this Workshop. We will put you in the right place at the right time. Increase your visibility, network with key players, and show your support and commitment to industry and the community!
