• New Training Session Sign In Process

    We will be beta testing a barcode based sign in process (replacing the physical sign-in sheets) for our monthly training sessions. The barcode that will be used for the sign-in is at the bottom of the registration confirmation email. You can use your cell phone or a paper print out of the registration confirmation email to sign in. This will enable us to track attendance better and also enable uploading of session CPEs directly to ISACA International.
