Electronic Handouts

Complete course materials will be provided electronically. Electronic handouts may be downloaded from the web; electricity will be provided in meeting rooms for laptop use.

Paperless handouts offer participants a variety of benefits:

  • Course handouts will be e-mailed two weeks prior to the course.  This allows last minute and current OEHS information to be incorporated.

  • Handouts will be distributed as a full color PDF, which allows participants to view detailed images and content on each page.  Handouts will have comment- and typewriter-enabled capacity.

  • Bookmarks provide a “table of contents” to better navigate materials; information will be completely searchable.

  • Live links provide instant access to additional references.

  • Ability to add comments to the electronic handout.

  • Convenient, portable handouts are easily stored, referenced, managed and retained.

  • Negative env​ironmental impact is reduced by giving participants an option to save, transfer files to a laptop or other device, or print all or a portion of the material.

  • Electronic handouts are included in the course fee.  If you opt to have AIHA print and bind the handout for you and have it available for you on the first day of the course, there is a $75 fee.

Next to the convention center, the Arena District is home to the Blue Jackets NHL and Clippers Triple-A Baseball teams, concerts and restaurants.
