The technician seminar series begins on Wednesday, February 28, 2018 at the Elks Lodge, 8421 Arlington Blvd., Fairfax, VA, and at four remote sites in Bowie & Gaithersburg, MD and Leesburg & Winchester, VA (see below for more information about remote sites) from 9:00 am to 2:30 pm. Individual seminar attendance cost is $65 and is payable at the door only at the Elks Lodge in Fairfax.

Those technicians registered for the entire series will receive meeting announcements by email and have access to seminar handouts on the DC Academy website in the Technician section. Also, the DC Academy will archive continuing education credits for series-registered technicians.

Mr. Kenichiro Yagi, BS, RVT, VTS, has informed us that he will be doing a special interactive portion of his presentation in the 1:30-2:30pm session.  As this will be a new process, we want to let you know that this interactive portion may be more informative if you attend the seminar at the Elks Lodge in Fairfax.  We want those folks who are planning to attend at the remote sites to be aware of this potential issue

  • Shock
  • Respiratory Emergencies

Technician Program Chairs

Remote Sites
The DC Academy has opened four remote viewing sites for its technician seminar series.  These sites, listed below, will be live on the same day as our regularly scheduled seminars.  The sites will have the same slide images and presenter audio as the main seminar site in Fairfax, along with a site facilitator.  Remote viewing site attendees will be able to text questions to the presenter by sending a text to 703-733-0556.

Remote sites will provide coffee/bagel/Danish in the morning and a boxed lunch at noon.  Attendance at these sessions provide the same CE hours as attending the seminars at the Fairfax site, five contact hours maximum, three hours for the morning session (9:00 am to noon) and two hours for the afternoon session (12:45 pm to 2:30 pm).  There are no printed handouts at remote sites so you must download/print the handout from our website (when posted) or from the email we send out the week before the seminar.

Pre-registration is required for attendance at the remote sites regardless if you have registered for the full series as space is limited and to provide the appropriate food/beverage service Note: Walk-in registration is not permitted at remote sites.  Pre-registration for single seminar attendance is not required for attending at the Elks Lodge in Fairfax.  Please download, complete and return the Technician Remote Site Registration form by fax 703-742-8745 or email.

Download the remote site registration form (word doc).

  • No walk-in registration will be available at the remote viewing sites. Pre-registration at remote sites is required by Friday, 5:00 pm, before the seminar on Wednesday. The registration fees for remote sites are as follows:
    • Free for paid seminar series registrants or student registrants
    • $65 for single seminar attendees

All payments must be made by credit card. Credit cards will be charged on the day of the seminar and an emailed receipt will be sent. NOTE TO ALL REMOTE SITE REGISTRANTS: If you are unable to attend the seminar and do not notify the DC Academy 48 hours prior to the seminar (e.g. Monday, 9:00 am prior to the seminar), you will be charged a non-refundable $25 administrative fee.
