Do I need to register to access resources (or “products”) on IDFA Learning?
For items that are available to you at no charge, such as the free monthly IDFA webinars, registration is complete once you click the “Register” button. You can access the item by clicking the blue box with the arrow next to the item overview. The free item will appear in “My Cart” if you have any products waiting to be purchased.
If a product costs a fee, you’ll need to register to become an IDFA Member and complete the transaction in “My Cart.”
Why are some IDFA Learning materials (or “products”) free, and others cost money?
IDFA Members have free access to all Learning “print” materials (articles, reports, sample documents and templates), live webinars, DFA journal access, etc. Select learning “products” such as IDFA Marketing Materials, may be offered at a discount. IDFA Members also receive a discount on conference registration.
Non-members may purchase IDFA Course Modules and the DFA Journal, view the “For the Public” resource pages, as well as register for the annual conference, but are ultimately encouraged to become an IDFA Member. You can become an IDFA Member here!
