Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology Makes All Online Courses FreeThe Foundation for Dental Laboratory Technology, a 501(c)(3), not-for-profit educational foundation, dedicated to furthering dental laboratory technology education, is announcing that it is making all of its Foundation Learning Library courses available to the dental laboratory community at no charge on an ongoing basis.
“We know that CDTs and RGs are seeking virtual continuing education right now, more than ever, with meetings such as DLAT, MDLA and WSDLA being rescheduled and LMT West being cancelled,” said Sean Siegel, Foundation Chair. “We also know that educational institutions are being asked to go virtual and are looking for high-quality online education to supplement their curriculum.”
The Foundation Learning Library at www.dentallabfoundation.org/courses, offers almost 100 on-demand courses, available 24/7/365, covering topics such as occlusion, esthetics, implants, sleep apnea, digital dentures, CAD/CAM, 3D printing and much more. “Many of these courses have been generously underwritten or donated by our wonderful supporters and we felt this was a great way to give back to the community that has given so much to helping dental laboratory technology education,” said Gary Iocco, Foundation Vice Chair.
Most courses are approved through the National Board for Certification in Dental Laboratory Technology for CDT/RG credits and courses are available to stream for 90 days once purchased. “As of now, we have opened the entire platform up on an ongoing basis,” said Shawn Nowak, Foundation Fiscal Officer. “We will continue to monitor new developments, however, and pivot where (or when?) we need to.”
