General Information

Continuing Education offerings consist of Continuing Education (CE) courses and Computer Technology Workshops (CTW). The courses cover a range of topics including topics that may have been missed in graduate school, such as survival analysis or sampling, or those that are considerably more current, such as data mining and computational aspects of Bayesian data analysis. Courses are offered in two-day, one-day, and half-day formats on Saturday, Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. Computer Technology Workshops are offered in two-hour intervals on Wednesday. An hour and a half break beginning at 12:30 p.m. is provided for attendees to have lunch on their own. The ASA will provide beverages for midmorning and midafternoon CE course breaks.

The CE Program seeks monitors for its educational presentations. Monitors will be allowed to audit one course of equal length for every course he/she monitors.

Monitors are expected to:

  • Process registrants - check them into the course, hand out required materials and respond to inquiries
  • Be available for the entire presentation
  • Pick up materials, etc. for presentation
  • Distribute and collect evaluations

If you are interested in participating, provide your name, current and summer mailing addresses, email and phone number to Rick Peterson, Education Programs Associate. Send your information by email to Monitor positions are limited and will be accepted on a first come, first served basis.

Monitors will be sent notification of acceptance. They will also be asked to select the presentation to audit and which day they would like to monitor a course. (*Note: the course being monitored must be a different course from the one being audited).


Registration will depend on seat availability and be handled on a first-come, first-served basis. Registering early is the best option to ensure a place for any CE offering. If seats are available after the advance registration deadline, on site registration will be offered in Miami. To participate in CE Courses and Computer Technology Workshops attendees must register for the Joint Statistical Meetings.

Course Participation Certificates

The ASA provides course participation certificates upon request. In order to receive a certificate, attendees must complete a request form that is provided by the monitor at the completion of the course. The certificate will be mailed within thirty days of the close of JSM. Be sure to indicate the title and number of each course for each certificate. Attendees must attend the entire course to qualify for a certificate.
