The ACS Department of Professional Education offers two options for online training at your convenience. Online Courses take place once a week, live online, during the course of several weeks. However, attendance at the live sessions is not required, and session recordings are available. On-Demand Courses are shorter and focused on a particular topic area in depth. You have access to play the lecture at your convenience anytime during a seven-day access period. Both course options give you an opportunity to communicate with the instructor for the duration of your course or access period. For more information, please visit our website at

The next Online Course circuits start the week of April 10, and you can access On-Demand Courses anytime!
