Frequently Asked Questions

General Questions

When is it and do I have to attend both conferences?

There are two in-person conference dates running, Layton, Utah, April 27–30, 2020 and Salzburg, Austria, May 21–24, 2020.

You can attend both in person, one in person and get recordings, or get the recordings for both (IVA Teachers only). So you could attend the USA in person and watch Salzburg recordings, etc.

What credit do I get from IVACON?

For teachers in the IVA Teacher Training Program, IVACON covers the credit for your Teacher Training and Virtual Pass requirements for the year. If you choose to take any Private Lessons, you can also credit those to your requirements for the year.

Where can I find the IVACON schedule?

The full schedule will be published shortly as we confirm guest speakers and sessions.

Will I get to choose which classes I attend?

If you are not in the IVA Teacher Training Program, you can attend all classes that are marked for you on your schedule.

If you are a teacher in the IVA Teacher Certification Program, you can attend all classes that are marked with your specific level or with “All.” Classes marked as "Any" mean you can choose what class you wish to attend.

Can I choose whom I have my Private Lesson with?

When registering for a Private Lesson, you may request a specific teacher you DO NOT want to have lessons with, and we will do our best to accommodate you. However, due to the scheduling demands of IVACON classes, we cannot guarantee that your lesson will not be with that person.

Can I do mock testing/interactive teaching at IVACON during my Private Lesson with an MT?

If you are in the IVA Teacher Training Program, you can do mock testing/interactive teaching during your Private Lessons at IVACON. However, if you would like to do mock testing/interactive teaching, you must be sure that you have another teacher willing to miss classes to help you out as a student.

When will the Private Lesson schedule be posted?

The Private Lesson schedule will be available in advance. Announcements will be made during the conference, and you will be responsible for finding out when and where your lesson(s) will be.

When will the recordings be available?

We hope to publish recordings from each conference within 2 months of the conference taking place, if not sooner. Given the volume of data involved in recording all the classes, it can take some time to process them and upload for online viewing.

What payment plans are available?

There are a number of payment plans available to help IVA Teachers spread the cost of attending:
  • 1 payment of $747 USD
  • 2 payments of $400 USD (either two consecutive payments or one now and one in April 2020)
  • 4 payments of $200 USD
