Introducing GCAAR's Profession Sessions

GCAAR is excited to introduce the Profession Sessions! While you are practicing "Safer at Home," join us for virtual sessions designed to help you hone your craft, earn a new certification or designation, and get answers to questions you may not have even known you had. The Profession Sessions is a series of webinars, events and classes offered virtually through the month of May and beyond, including a few CE classes for DC and Virginia. Our Class and Events Calendar provides the current list of subjects, dates and times. Be sure to set a reminder to check back weekly as new offerings will be added throughout the month!

GCAAR CE classes now available through live streaming

Given the recent executive orders in both Maryland and DC temporarily ceasing all non-essential business activities, GCAAR will continue to postpone its in-person classes and events until the orders are lifted. In the meantime, GCAAR will be able to offer live-streamed Continuing Education (CE) credits for Maryland, the District of Columbia and Virginia using the Zoom platform. Take a look at our calendar for a list of classes and webinars offered through this platform.
