To register for a class, you must have an EFA account. Paid members receive an automatic 20% discount on all education offerings. You can also register for classes/webinars by setting up a free guest account. To join, upgrade from a guest to a member, or set up a guest account, go here.

Advance online registration and payment with a credit card are required for all EFA classes and webinars. Transactions are conducted on a secure PayPal/Verisign server. To register, sign in to your member or guest account and follow the registration links in the course catalog. Please register with the email address at which you wish to receive course emails.

Registration for webinars closes two business days before the webinar takes place. Registration for online courses closes two business days before the start date of the course. We cannot accommodate late registrations.

Classes with too few registrations will be canceled two days before the first class date; registrants will be notified and their money refunded.

If you are paying for a student other than yourself, have them log in and register with their own EFA account (Member or Guest), and you will have an opportunity to enter your billing information on a subsequent screen.
