FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS(FAQs)
Where will the program be held?
IAML conducts seminars, conferences and workshops in the hotels printed in our brochures. The meeting room information for your program will be available at the hotel (at the front desk or posted in the lobby).
Does IAML arrange discounted room rates at those hotels?
Yes. IAML negotiates a certain number of rooms at a discounted rate for all of our seminars, conferences and workshops. These rooms are available on a first-come, first served basis. The discounted rate will always expire 35 days prior to the program start date, or when sold out, whichever comes first. When reserving a room at the hotel, you must give the reservation agent the program name, dates and our company name to receive the discounted rate. If you attempt to make a hotel reservation and our group rate is no longer available, please call IAML, we may be able to assist you with arrangements. You should register for the program with IAML before reserving your hotel room.
When will I receive confirmation of program registration?
Confirmations are sent via e-mail, usually within 48 hours of receipt of your registration.
Does IAML require pre-registration for programs, or can I "walk-in"?
Walk-ins are accepted, but we recommend you call IAML first to ensure that we have space and materials.

4½ day programs are 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday-Thursday; 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Friday. 2½ day programs are, depending upon location, 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Monday-Tuesday, 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Wednesday or 8:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. Wednesday-Thursday and 8:00 – 12:00 p.m. Friday.
How should I dress for the program?
Business attire is not necessary. We recommend that you dress casually and comfortably and anticipate varied temperatures in the meeting rooms.
Will I receive any study materials in advance of the program?
No. All materials are distributed during the program and can be quite voluminous so we recommend that you consider space when packing, or make arrangements to ship the materials from the hotel to your office via your organization’s overnight mail account or your credit card.
Will I receive a Certificate of Completion from IAML?
Yes, if you complete the full 4½ day seminar or 2½ day conference or workshop, you will receive a certificate from IAML approximately four weeks after the program ends. If you attend only a portion of a seminar, you can still earn your certificate, if you complete the remaining blocks of the seminar within a two year period. When you are at the program you must sign the attendance sheet every day. If you do not sign in daily you will not receive a Certificate of Completion.
Is homework assigned or are tests given during the program?
For the most part, the answer is no. There may be some instructors who suggest some minimal reading over one or two evenings of the program.
Are IAML programs approved for continuing education?
If you are working towards a degree or need credit for a professional designation (PHR/SPHR/GPHR, APA, WorldatWork, IHMM, ABIH, etc.), you may be able to receive credit for your participation. Attorneys seeking mandatory continuing legal education credit (MCLE) may be eligible as well. Please call for details.
