About MAA Virtual Learning Center
Welcome to the Michigan Assessors Association's Virtual Learning Center. The MAA Education Committee has developed a series of virtual learning courses for members during the months of August, September and October. As new coursed are developed, and receive approval from the State Tax Commission, information and registration will be available here.
MAA Webinars are currently limited to 45 students (this may change in the future) and recognizes that these classes may have more demand than available space. Depending on the demand and availability of instructors, MAA may offer additional webinars dates if the first dates are filled. Members will be notified via email when new classes are added.
We use the Zoom Webinar application to present our webinars. Attendee should download and install the ZOOM application on the device they intend to use to participate in the webinar (we do not recommend using your phone for MAA webinars).
However, participants who are unable to install Zoom can attend a webinar using the Zoom web client on their desktop web browser. When joining the webinar, the participant can click on "Join from your browser". They will be prompted to enter their name and then be able to join the webinar. A class moderator will be available 30 minute prior to the start of a webinar to assist attendees with any communication difficulties once they have joined a webinar. However, moderators will not interrupt the class after it begins to assist someone logging in late.
Continuing Education Credit
The State Tax Commission, at their meeting on August 18, 2020, adopted a policy regarding virtual education requirements. This policy requires that ALL students have two-way video communication capabilities for attendance in virtual learning webinars. Therefore, you MUST have a video camera on the device that you will attend the webinar from so that we can see you. If you do not have two-way video capability, you may still attend the webinar but, you WILL NOT receive continuing education credit.
Each attendee must to submit a completed short “quiz” at the conclusion of the webinar comprised of key points and an authentication code provided during the webinar. After successful submission the quiz, the attendee will receive a certificate which may be used to register CE credit on the State Tax Commission's CERTS application. Note that each attendee must use the unique webinar join link assigned to them. Due to attendance logging, attendees cannot share their device or login link or share computers to attend these webinars.
