After you set up your free lynda.com account, register using the form below to receive an activation code from lynda.com via email (administered by CLRC).  Please allow up to one business day to receive your activation.

We are currently offering activation periods of two weeks or one month. During that time-frame, users may view as many training videos as they wish on as many topics as desired. Did we mention that this is free?

CLRC has purchased a limited number of activation codes, so registration will be rotated on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you need contact hour credit, CLRC will endorse your certificate of completion.  Please email a copy of your certificate to CLRC (process described here) and we will electronically “stamp” it and return it to you.

Any Questions? Contact Déirdre Joyce for additional information.
