The teacher training course registration process has been moved online for Institutes this summer, and, if all goes well, will be implemented for all teacher training venues: workshops, apprenticeships, etc.
What does this mean for teachers?
Most of all: less paperwork to remember! Your training this summer will be registered with the SAA automatically by the Institutes—no need for you to mail forms or fees to the SAA. As soon as your training has been registered, usually a few weeks after your course, you will be notified by email. You can then go online and view/print an updated record of SAA registered training. By drastically reducing the amount of paper and postal mail, this new registration process is also environmentally friendly.
You can always view your registered training and other membership records online—just click on “Log In” at the top right.
While you’re there, you can add a picture and bio for the online directory, sign up for the public teacher location service, or change your address.
If you have not already done so, you will need to set up a website user account. Just click the “Create An Account” button on the login screen to begin.
