NEW for 2019-2020: Foundation Seminar: $85

Foundation seminars are now offered to scale technicians with less than three years of experience. This format provides a deeper understanding of presented material and the opportunity to have questions resolved prior to moving on to the general session and scale training. Seminars meet for four (4) hours prior to the general session and scale certification training and are adapted to each scale category (small, large, or retail computing). Foundation seminars do not replace the general session or the KDA Scale Technician Licensing Continuing Education (CEU) sessions.  Technicians attending the foundation seminars must also register for the general session and CEU session for the scale category they wish to be licensed.
