FPMA Partners with UF and Industry Leaders for Free CEUs and Business Education
FPMA and UF partnered for two weeks of free CEUs in CORE, GHP, L&O, and WDO. The classes were highly attended and attendees found them very useful. We were able to provide everyone who attended the full sessions with their CEU certificates electronically. If you still need CEUs, please email us at info@flpma.org and let us know what you need. If there is enough interest, we will try to set up another round of classes. 

Please watch your email and check our website frequently to keep up-to-date with free CEUs and Business Webinars. We'll be adding new opportunities all month.
