How to Enroll in IVS-PD

Step One:  Create an IVS-PD Account

Step One is completed only once. You will need an email account to create the account and complete the application. Be sure to use email that is checked regularly.

Once the account is created and the application submitted, the IVS system will automatically send an email containing your credentials. Look in your inbox for an email from [email protected] Please keep these credentials on file.

Step Two: Request (and Pay) to Take an IVS-PD Course

Many IVS PD courses are free and do not require you to pay a fee. In this instance you will request the course and then be automatically enrolled in the course.

For courses with a fee, you will request and then pay for the course. PayPal is enabled to allow electronic payment of course fees.

For help requesting a course, please use the following help guides:

Note: PD Participants will not have immediate access to a course once enrolled, in particular if the start date was selected for the same day as requesting to take the course. There is a 12-24 hour delay between the time you register and enroll to the time you can access the course.

If you click the "Launch Course" button before the course system and registration system talk to each other, you will receive an "unauthorized" message. This will go away and you will have access once our two systems sync up.

Step Three: Prepare Your Computer and Complete Orientation

Before you start your course, IVS highly recommends that students take the time to go through the Orientation to better prepare for successful completion of online courses.

In addition, take the time now to prepare your computer to ensure that you are using the recommended operating system and supported web browser, allowing pop-ups, and clearing your cache so content will be accessible.

Step Four: Access the Course

On the course start date or 12-24 hours after selecting the start date*, the Course Widget and the Launch Course on your Personalized Dashboard will become active. Use the Launch Course button in the widget to access your course in a new window.

If it seems nothing happens when you click the Launch Course button, you need to enable pop-ups
