Effective February 1, 2012

If you register for professional development activities through the Northwest AEA online registration system, you will notice some new choices and several security features.  You will still be able to browse the professional development catalog without making any changes to your account profile, but once an activity is added to the shopping cart, a new login screen will appear.  This login screen is where you will begin to create a unique passcode (password) and establish security questions and answers.

Instructions for New Security Features
If you have previously registered for a Northwest AEA professional development activity, please enter your first and last name and the login method that you previously used, either your Social Security number or your driver’s license number.  Then enter the set-up passcode, eduCation2010.  Now click the LOG IN button.  You will be taken to a screen where you will create your unique passcode and choose from several security questions.  Once you have selected and answered the two security questions, click on CONTINUE.  The new screen will allow you to update your account records.  You will have the option of including three possible login identification numbers: Social Security number, driver’s license number or Iowa BOEE folder number.  In the future, you will be able to log in with any of the numbers you have provided along with your unique passcode.
 
If you have never registered before for a Northwest AEA professional development activity, please enter your first and last name and the login method that your prefer to use.   Then enter the set-up passcode, eduCation2010.  Now click the CREATE NEW ACCOUNT button.  You will be taken to a screen where you will create your unique passcode and choose from several security questions.  Once you have selected and answered the two security questions, then click on CONTINUE.  The new screen will allow you to set up an account.  You will have the option of including three possible login identification numbers: Social Security number, driver’s license number or Iowa BOEE folder number.  In the future, you will be able to log in with any of the numbers you have provided along with your unique passcode.

If you forget your passcode, there is a button on the login page that you can click.  An e-mail will be sent to the e-mail address on record with instructions on how to reset your passcode.  Northwest AEA’s Professional Development Registrar will not be able to tell you your passcode if you forget it; they will only be able to reset it to eduCation2010 after you provide them with the answers to your security questions.  You will then be able to create a new passcode. 

If you have any questions, please contact Joyce Vander Wilt, staff development specialist, at 800/572-5073 ext. 7805.
