Covid-19 Related Event and Training Status Update Hub

As COVID-19 (Coronavirus) diagnoses continue to increase worldwide, ISA is committed to providing a safe and healthy environment for our members, customers, and staff.  

The World Health Organization (WHO), the US Centers for Disease Control (CDC), and other global health organizations have universally recommended the cancellation or postponement of gatherings to slow the spread of the virus. 

We are complying with those recommendations. As a result, several events and training classes have been impacted. For the conveniences of our members, students, and customers, we have consolidated lists of those events in one location.  

While we are all working together to come out of this unprecedented situation stronger, we encourage you to take advantage of this additional time for training and education. ISA has an array of online solutions that are designed to help your teams close knowledge gaps, stay up-to-date on industry standards, and adapt to the changing workforce with flexibility.
