Webinars and Online Courses

Can I pay for a webinar or online course with a Purchase Order?

customerservice@fredjones.com (831) 425-8222




If I register with a Purchase Order, how will I login?


When we process your P.O. we will manually enroll you in the course using the name(s) and email(s) you provide. You will then receive a confirmation email that will include any further instructions, such as setting up a password of your choice.




Can one Purchase Order be used to enroll multiple students?


Yes, we can process as many students as you need via a single P.O. We will ultimately require a student/participant list with first names, last names, and emails. We will then manually enroll your group in the course using the names and emails you provide. Each student will then receive a confirmation email that will include any further instructions, such as setting up a password of their choice.




Is there a discount for registering a group?


Yes, we offer discounts for groups of 5 or more. Please contact our office for specific pricing.




I want to train my entire school/district. What options do you have for large groups?


If you have a large group, we encourage you to contact our office and we can discuss options. In addition to a discount, your group may want to explore a private webinar or hosting an in-person workshop at your site.




I've enrolled in a webinar, how do I get my copy of the Tools for Teaching ebook?


An ebook copy of Tools for Teaching is included wtih your webinar enrollment. Download instructions and your coupon code can be found in the first lesson of the webinar course.

Is there follow-up training after a workshop?


Yes, the Tools for Teaching Video Toolbox is designed to continue the skill building begun in a workshop. We realize that there is a lot of information in a workshop and processing it all at once can be overwhelming. Our Video Toolbox provides structure for practice and development beyond our workshops so teachers can gradually feel comfortable and ultimately master these skills. If you'd like more time with our trainers, please contact us and we can discuss personalized in-person or virtual follow-up training.





College Credit

Can I get college credit for Webinars and Workshops?


Yes. Our webinars and workshops cover the same topics and meet the same academic requirements. Our credit provider, the University of San Diego, recognizes our 2-day webinar and our 2-day workshop for 1 graduate level unit.




Who provides the credit and how much does it cost?


We partner with the University of San Diego to provide graduate level units. They charge $75 per unit and all transactions are directly through the university. Fredric H. Jones and Associates, Inc. does not receive any payment, in any form, from the University of San Diego and only provides courses as a service to our customers.




Is there a test?


Yes. In order to meet USD's requirement for a course you must submit a test to Fredric H. Jones and Associates, Inc. The link is provided during the workshop or webinar you attend. There are approximately 50 questions and should take just over an hour to complete. It is an open book test.




How do I sign up for the credit?


Each Workshop and Webinar page has a link to our USD course enrollment page. You can also go there directly here. Once at our USD page, add a course to your shopping cart from the right hand column. You will be prompted to create a user login upon checkout. **Be sure to double check! Many times we will be offering multiple courses at the same time so be sure to click the right one.

How do I know I've received the unit?


After the workshop or webinar ends, you will have approximately 1 week to complete the test. After the test completion deadline, we will confirm your course and test completion and submit grades to USD. Once they process your grade, you will be notified via email by USD that your units have been approved. USD will contact you via email once your grades have been processed. If you need to access those grades, use the login you created at checkout to access your student account from the USD site.
