  • Participation with ASC Ambassadors — members in addition to primary event instructors — in break-out rooms for discussions and daily social sessions.
  • Panel discussions with ASC members on select topics.
  • Presentations by leading equipment manufacturers 


Registration is now open for students worldwide.  All instruction will be in English and conducted via Zoom.

The price of participation in this two-day event is $900.00 USD.

A complete, final day-to-day schedule will be emailed to participants the week before the class.
