Back-to-School Series: OTAN Trainings

Posted on 09/22/2022

This is the second in a series of news items that will provide information about essential features of OTAN for you to know as you and your colleagues begin the new school year.

OTAN offers trainings on a variety of educational technology topics in both face-to-face and online formats throughout the school year. The workshops fit a wide variety of skill levels and can even be customized to meet the respective needs of a program or site. All workshops are free for California adult educators and staff, hosted by WIOA-funded agencies.

To learn more about OTAN trainings, click on the Training menu at the top of the OTAN website.

Click on What's Here to learn more about the trainings that OTAN provides and training requirements, or view our Face-to-Face and Online workshops and other offerings for ideas for trainings to have at your agency.

Another way to learn about trainings from OTAN, CASAS, CALPRO, and other agencies is to visit the California Adult Education Professional Development Training Calendar from the same Training menu. Use your OTAN account email address (or create an account as a new user) to register for open trainings that are listed on the calendar.

One additional training opportunity to be aware of is our monthly OTAN Tech Talk, a quick look at a technology tool, technique, or tip specifically designed for busy adult education teachers. On the second Friday of each month, a new topic will be covered during a one-hour webinar where participants get information and a chance to get individual questions answered. You can listen to previous OTAN Tech Talk recordings on our Video Presentations webpage or our YouTube playlist. Register for upcoming OTAN Tech Talks on the California Adult Education Professional Development Training Calendar.

If you have questions about any workshop or would like to schedule a training, you can call our office at 916-228-2580 or email us at We update and add training titles throughout the year, so make sure to check the Training pages and Training Calendar regularly.

Please join us at an OTAN training (and invite your colleagues as well)! We look forward to seeing you online (or hopefully face-to-face at some point in the 2022-23 school year)!
