How to Create a myPLTW Account & Register for PLTW Core Training

We know you’re eager to register for PLTW Core Training, and we can’t wait for you to experience it. To register for PLTW Core Training, teachers must have a myPLTW account. This account gives teachers access to curriculum, the PLTW Store, Community, announcements, and more.

In the process of creating an account, the teacher will request to join a school site, which their Program Coordinator or Site Coordinator will approve from their own myPLTW account. Note that a teacher must join a site to pay for PLTW Core Training with a purchase order. Teachers can check out as a guest without joining a site, but they must pay for the event with a credit card.
