Where the pursuit of knowledge comes alive

School owners, administrators, and organizers of state and national associations can host their own on-site training and events. Or they can choose from Milady's library of on-demand trainings—or work with us to create an engaging live virtual event.

Live Events with Milady

For live, in-person events, Milady will fly an experienced educator to the event location to teach a one- or two-day Milady Master Educator Class. In-person classes are taught by experienced educators and academic trainers by means of colorful and dynamic presentations. Classes are highly interactive, participant-centered, and offered in a variety of settings throughout the year.

Sixteen teaching methodology classes are available to choose from. Click here to view the class list. (Note: The pandemic forced us to pause live events in 2020. Moving forward, we will continue to follow state guidelines and recommendations.)
