Registration Information

TSBVI Outreach uses two different computer systems to deliver your training: 

ESC-Works is the system that records all of the CEUs that you have earned through TSBVI courses, webinars, and conferences.

Bridge LMS is the system that delivers e-learning course content and tracks your completion of e-learning courses.

To register for one of our e-learning courses, and to earn CEUs for completing that course, you must complete two forms:

The first form registers you for the course in ESC-Works.

The second form notifies TSBVI staff of your request for access to Bridge LMS.
