How do I register for a workshop/webinar?
Clients can use the secure online registration. Please complete your registration online and submit your choice of payment as stated below. Nonclients should request a PDF registration form by emailing michelleb@sscal.com and follow the instructions to pay by check or credit card.

  • If paying by check, mail the check to our "remit to only address"—P.O. Box 516613, Los Angeles, CA 90051-0599.
  • If paying by credit card, provide the credit card information when completing your registration online.
  • If paying with a purchase order (clients only), note the purchase order number when registering online and email a copy of the purchase order to michelleb@sscal.com.

When will I receive my Fast Pass (for in-person workshops) or Zoom link (for webinars)?
For in-person workshops, Fast Passes are available to download approximately two weeks prior to the workshop. Those who registered early will receive an email notice directing them to go here to download and print the Fast Pass for the workshop. A link to this page will also be available on the registered user's My SSC page under "Upcoming Workshops." A printed Fast Pass is necessary to bypass the registration desk. Registered attendees who do not bring a printed Fast Pass can stop by the registration desk to check in and receive any workshop materials.

When you register for any of our subject-based webinars hosted by Zoom, you will need to complete your registration by clicking on the link provided in the webinar confirmation email. The link will take you to Zoom where you will be asked to enter your name and email address to complete the webinar registration process. Once your registration has been confirmed, you will receive an email with your personalized link to access the webinar. Note that the email will be from Michelle Berge SSC Webinars (no-reply@zoom.us).

A subsequent email reminder will be sent one week before the workshop or webinar, with a final reminder email sent a day or two before the workshop or webinar. 

What if I am registering on behalf of someone else and they will be attending the webinar?
When you register someone else, you are asked to enter the individual’s name and email address. They will receive a webinar confirmation email at the email address you provided. From that point, they should follow the instructions for receiving their Zoom link included above under When will I receive my Fast Pass (for in-person workshops) or Zoom link (for webinars)?.

How can I access workshop and/or webinar resources?
Resources for all of your registered workshop and webinar resources can be found on the user’s My SSC page under “My Workshops.” 

You can access your My SSC page by clicking on the “My SSC” link located at the top right corner of our website next to the “Login/Logout” button.  If you do not currently have an account for our website, you can create an account using your local educational agency email address by clicking on the Login button and selecting “Create New Account.” If you need assistance accessing the resources or creating an account, please contact Rebecca Arent at rebeccaa@sscal.com.

What if I cannot attend an in-person workshop and would like to send a substitute?
Email michelleb@sscal.com, with the organization name, person(s) attending, and the name of the workshop or webinar. Please note who will not be attending and include the name and email address of the person substituting. Note that webinars are available to be viewed on demand for 90 days from the webinar date and all webinar resources are available online for download.

What if I only want to change the location for an in-person workshop?
Email michelleb@sscal.com, with the organization name, person(s) attending, and the name of the workshop. Please indicate your registered location and indicate your new desired location.

What if I need to cancel my registration for a subject-based webinar?
If you are unable to attend the live webinar(s) during the scheduled date and time, it will be recorded and made available to you for 90 days from the date of the webinar. You can access the on-demand webinar and download the presentation and other workshop resources through the My SSC page of your account and view the webinar at your convenience—including the question and answer portion.

If you would still like to cancel, please email michelleb@sscal.com with the organization name, person(s) cancelling, and the name of the webinar. You will receive a reply with a cancellation number that should be retained for your records. Please note that cancellations received after 5:00 p.m. the Friday before the first webinar will be charged the full webinar fee. Please call Michelle Berge at (916) 446-7517 or send an email to michelleb@sscal.com if you have any questions.

What else do I need to know?
At times, we have to change dates and locations of certain workshops or webinars. Always check our website for updates on date and/or location changes.
