Why do you request a secondary email? 
Many school filters will block incoming messages sent from CASIE's registration system. By providing a secondary private email, you will help us ensure that you receive all CASIE correspondence relating to your workshop attendance, including your official IB course completion certificate.

 

Can an IB coordinator register more than one teacher at a time?
Yes.  Complete a registration for the first teacher as the Primary Registrant and add all your other teachers to the same order.  To do so:

  • Click the “Add a Registrant” button at the end of the first registration. 

  • Enter the name, email, and other profile information of the additional teacher(s), being sure to select the appropriate category and workshop for each individual.

Upon completion of your multi-person registration, CASIE will follow-up with a single invoice reflecting the total charge for all registrants.

 

I need to send some people to training, but I don’t know who can go yet. Can I just hold some places?

How do I join a waitlist if a course if full?
If a course is full at the time of your registration, you will have the option to join a waitlist. This option is a link located at the top of the course list page.  

  • If space then opens for that course you will be notified and given the option to accept the seat.  

  • If waitlisted, you are not obligated to submit payment until you are notified of, and accept, a spot in the class.  

  • Full payment for registration is due immediately upon acceptance of a waitlist spot.  

  • Please note, you should not move forward with travel plans until you receive communication from CASIE that a firm space in the workshop has become available and you have paid for your registration in full.

 

If I accept a spot from the waitlist, what is the payment policy?

Payment will be due immediately at time of acceptance notification.

 

How do I cancel my waitlist registration?
To cancel, simply email the CASIE staff at
 registration@casieonline.org stating your name, course, and that you want to remove yourself from the waitlist. No cancellation fees apply if you cancel your waitlisted registration PRIOR to accepting a spot. You will automatically be canceled if CASIE offers you a spot and you do not respond in a timely manner. All registration and cancellation policies are applicable upon verbal or written confirmation of accepting a workshop spot through the waitlist.

IB Workshop Questions

Can I get a copy of my certificate of attendance?
CASIE will provide one digital Certificate of Attendance emailed to each participant at the close of each workshop. If you have not received your certificate within two weeks of the workshop’s end, please email 
registration@casieonline.org to let us know.  A complimentary digital copy will be reissued for up to 12 months following the workshop. Following this period, a $20 research and processing fee will be charged to fulfill all requests.

 

School/District registration & attendance history reports are available upon request from 2011 to the present. All reports are subject to a processing fee of $50 per each year included in the report. Please note that we are only able to provide reports for PD training received at a CASIE event. Reports require a minimum processing time of 2 weeks.

 

What if I need to leave the workshop early?
The IB and CASIE assume that all registered participants, as adult learners participating in professional development workshops, attend all 3 days of training to meet the IB requirement of 15 hours of instructional contact time.

  • The official IB course certificate of attendance participants receive certifies that the bearer has met the IB-required 15 hours of instructional contact time.

  • We do not adjust certificates to reflect actual hours of attendance should you fail to meet the IB minimum requirements.

 

Can I receive graduate credit for attending the workshops?
Yes! We have partnered with Kent State University towards this very purpose! Click HERE for information.
