Training

Training is a core element of Committee Week. This year, the SAIA will offer five different classes through its internationally acclaimed SAIA University (SAIAU) Training Program. We recommend that you register early in order to allow plenty of time to study beforehand. Please bring the textbook with you on the day of class for review. Please note that all training classes are separate events from the SAIA Committee Week and incur an additional fee.
