I want to train with the Nonprofit Learning Lab.

We are always looking for qualified and engaging trainers to collaborate with. Click here to find out how to serve as a trainer. Some of our trainers are paid and some trainers volunteer their time. The length of the workshop determines if the trainer is paid. We support those volunteering by providing plenty of free marketing. We are looking for trainers on a variety of topics.

If you are obtaining CEUs through the Nonprofit Learning Lab, please read through the policies and regulations of the accrediting organization related to the percentage of CEUs that can be online, asynchronous or in-person. Policies change from year to year, so please check with the accrediting organization to confirm if they allow in-person, live online or pre-recorded webinars as part of their CEUs. The Nonprofit Learning Lab offers CEUs through various entities. We cannot be held responsible for knowing what percentage of CEUs you have completed; you are responsible for tracking your own CEUs. If you have questions about CEUs, please follow up with the accrediting organization.
