The NAFSA On-Site CEP Workshop Program is currently unavailable. Please review our 2021 virtual CEP Workshop and e-Learning Course schedules for upcoming NAFSA Core Education Program Trainings.

Please reach out to NAFSA’s Professional Learning Services to learn more about your education and training needs.

Coordinating training for staff is always a challenge. You can provide NAFSA Core Education Program (CEP) workshops right in your area—when you need it—anywhere in the United States.

Now you can offer the same quality training to individuals unable to attend CEP workshops offered at NAFSA's regional or annual conferences. If travel is difficult from your area or scheduling is an issue, you can coordinate a high-quality NAFSA training opportunity that fits your schedule.

If you are interested in offering CEP workshops at your site, please contact Professional Learning Services.

Who Participates

  • You select the group
    • The group can be private to your institution or organization

  • You set your own workshop fees to participants (at any amount above $159)
