Register for an Institute

Registration for 2022 institutes will open on December 15, 2021. 

FAQs below are from our 2021 virtual institutes.

The name and email for each host is listed below, scroll to the right.

Because events are synchronous (live), you will need dedicated space and time for the instruction. We cannot certify those who are taking courses remotely from a stock show, another concurrent PD event, etc. The time zone for each institute is the time zone that the host site is located in. You will need to be in a space that allows for materials to be laid out and internet access during these times:
  • 9-11 am: Synchronous meeting
  • 11 am-1 pm: Lunch,; asynchronous work time
  • 1-3 pm: Synchronous meeting
  • 3-4 pm: Asynchronous work time, Lead Teacher office hours
The price is comparable to an in-person event because the amount usually allocated to hotels/meals will be spent on materials that will be sent directly to you.
Every effort should be made to attend all training, as your certification will not be finalized until you complete all activities. This may require you to attend the missed portion later in the summer with another event, or pay extra to compensate our Lead Teachers to instruct you individually.
As long as the institutes don't overlap, we do not limit your amount of institutes in one summer. If your funding, time frame, and schedule for self-care/ non-work time this summer allow for you to take 2 or more institutes, we look forward to seeing you!
CASE Institutes will be facilitated through Google Classroom and Zoom/Google Meets. There are no in-person events in 2021 unless otherwise noted on registration.
We anticipate returning to in-person events in 2022. If a virtual event works best for your schedule and lifestyle, 2021 may be the perfect year for you to be trained.
