Want to learn how to index for Christian Periodical Index (CPI), or would you like to brush up your indexing skills? Join CPI Team members for a series of training sessions in February. Sessions will cover descriptive indexing, identification of proper subject headings, and practice indexing. The first three sessions are introductory. The final session will cover more advanced indexing skills. By the end of these sessions, everyone will have completed indexing that will become part of CPI.

Participants will be entered into a drawing for a $50 Amazon gift card once for each live session attended, with the drawing to occur after the third session on February 16.

Participants who attend all three of the first three live training sessions will also be eligible for CEU credit. Participants desiring CEU credit must complete and submit an evaluation form by Friday, March 1.
