The need for ongoing professional training presents a significant opportunity for associations to provide valuable benefits to their members. By offering accredited continuing education materials in an online Learning Management System (LMS), associations can effectively and efficiently meet the professional needs of their members.

An LMS is a completely self-contained mobile learning environment. It supports both the learner and the educator by offering a consistent integrated learning experience where:

1) groups can easily interact

2) robust content can be generated, presented and customized

3) tests can be securely administered and scored

Connecting members to the collective knowledge and experience of the association helps create a synergy that enhances professional learning and growth for association members.
