Frequently Asked Questions
Q. What is the PIA shopping cart?
PIA has upgraded its education registration system to allow you to securely register for multiple courses online using a credit card. We will store your personal information to streamline your registration process and we'll be able to keep track of the programs you attended with PIA.
Q. How do I register online using the shopping cart?
It's easy! First, pick your program or programs:
Scroll through the online education schedule and select the course and location you're interested in.
If you want to register for multiple courses, click “Register for another program”
Changed your mind? Click “ remove” and the course you've highlighted will be taken out of the shopping cart.
Next, update your account information:
Q. What if I haven't already registered for the PIA Web site?
That's easy to do.
Select “I am a new customer” and click “sign in.”
You will need your member number to access pia.org member benefits, including registration fee discounts. (Don't know your member number? Call the PIA Industry Resource Center at (800) 424-4244 or e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, and we'll get it for you right away.)
And note that as a member who has registered for the PIA Shopping Cart, you'll be able to access ALL of the member-only sections of the PIA Web site—be sure to do so to take full advantage of your member benefits.
Q. Can I still register and pay with a check?
A. Absolutely. When you hit ‘register' on our education schedule, you'll have two options: “Pay by Check—print a registration form that you can mail or fax to PIA” or register using our Shopping Cart feature. Registering with a check, or with a credit card by printing and completing the registration form is always an option for you. Just print the form, complete your identification and payment information, and mail to PIA with your check, or fax it with your credit card information.
Q. Can I register without my member number?
A. Yes, but you will be charged the nonmember rate if you use our Shopping Cart. If you don't know your member number, we'll be happy to get it for you—just call the Industry Resource Center. Or, you can print a form and send it to us without the number—we'll check the system and update your record to make sure you get the PIA member discount you're entitled to.
Q. I'm still having trouble using the Shopping Cart. What do I do?
A. We're here to help. Simply call PIA at (800) 424-4244. Tell the operator that you need help registering for an education program, and we'll help you do so, step by step.
