Pre-Event Short Courses

IFT's short courses deliver in-depth, practical education with only a modest investment of your time. Nine Pre-IFT17 courses will be held at the Venetian Sands Las Vegas including a mix of new and previously held successful offerings:*

If you are a confirmed registrant, you should have already received an email prior to the course with additional details including when and where to pick up your badge and materials.  If you did not, please contact Alex Schultz at aschultz@ift.org.

Eight courses are already sold out, and space is extremely limited for the remaining one.  It is very unlikely we will be able to accommodate additional registrants in sold out courses, and the waitlist has been closed.  If you have not already received a course registration confirmation, we discourage you from showing up onsite expecting to secure a seat.
