RRS offers educational workshops through the North Carolina Research and Education Network (NCREN) videoconference system at twelve sites across the state. We also offer the opportunity to participate remotely from your desk by streaming the videoconference live.

Attendees may earn 0.3 CEUs towards professional certification such as CPRP for approved workshops. Videoconferences are held from 9:00 am – 12:00 noon on the first Wednesday of each month from September through May (except for January 2017).
