With training classes being postponed or cancelled we understand the concern to still achieve your renewal training credits. NYWEA has a link on our website for distance learning options that you can complete without attending any in-person training. The link for both pre-approved courses and distance learning appears below. Be sure to check out these options. Distance learning is a viable option during this period of social distancing.
