If you are logged into your ION account and a course is open for registration, it will be listed below. Selecting the Register Now button will start the registration process.

Course Administration Notes

  • Due to the workload of ION courses, we advise you to limit yourself to two concurrent registrations.
  • The decision to allow a scheduled course to run is usually made by the end of the Wednesday preceding a course start. All courses must have at least 7 registrations to run.
  • Your registration is subject to verification by the institution/agency with which you are affiliated if an affiliation discount is involved.
