Class Schedule and Registration

NEOWTP classes are designed to assist registrants in meeting their professional goals as well as satisfying regulatory requirements. Our classes, offered virtually and in-person, are approved for continuing education credits by regulatory agencies in Rhode Island, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, and New York.

The 2023 class and training schedule is now available and open for registration. Additional classes are expected to be added to the schedule by Spring 2023: please check back often for updates. We will continue to offer both in-person and online classes via Webex. Please review the schedule carefully to determine whether the class is online or in-person before completing your registration.

Online Training Information

NEOWTP classes are delivered online using WebEx, an application-sharing and conferencing service that may be used for presentations, demos, training and support and is provided in a cloud-based, hosted format from Cisco’s WebEx Communications, Inc., Santa Clara, CA.

WebEx is free for you to use and lets you participate in NEOWTP’s classes. When you join a WebEx session, everything that the presenters see and manipulate on their computers can be viewed by everyone in the session. WebEx works well from both Windows and Mac systems and is also available via portable devices such as iPad and Android-based systems.

Program Policies

Courses are open to all interested parties, but please recognize that some courses have prerequisites (see course descriptions for details) to ensure that participants have appropriate background knowledge and context for the content. Registration must be completed using our online registration platform.  Please note many classes have a minimum and maximum number of registrants and we encourage you to register early. Should the minimum number not be reached, we reserve the right to cancel the class. Registrants will be offered the choice to transfer to another class (different fees may apply), obtain a refund, or receive credit for a future course. Any participant unable to register online should email neowtp@uri.edu  or call 401.874.5950 for alternative registration instructions.

Every class is assigned an early fee and regular fee. Please check the course schedule for individual class fees, which will also display during online registration. The early fee is reserved for those registrations recorded by the NEOWTP at least 14 calendar days before the scheduled class.  All other registrations will be charged the regular fee, unless submitted within 48 hours of the scheduled start of class. Registrations submitted within 48 hours of the scheduled start of class will be assigned an additional $25 late fee. Please note some courses have a participant limit and late registration may not be possible.
