To create your student profile click "LOGIN" in the upper right corner of the homepage.  Select Student Login.  If you already have an account you can login from this screen.  If you have an account, but cannot remember your username or password you can click on "forgot username" or "forgot password".  If you are new to the system and do not have an account, you can create your profile by following the instructions under "Create a free account".  Once you have created your account you will receive an email with your username and password.

Training Program Discounts:

If you are an employee of a Technology & Leadership Center program partner company, you will need to select the appropriate discount as you complete your registration and transaction.  To receive the discount, you will need to first associate yourself with your group in your student profile.  To begin the association process add your company email address to your profile.  The system will then recognize that you are part of a group that is qualified to receive training discounts.  Please note: you do not need to use your company email address as your preferred method of contact and you can have multiple email addresses on file.

Once you have added your company email address, you will need to scroll to the Group Affiliations section of your profile, "Accept" the company that you are part of, and save your profile.  When you add a course to your cart and begin the checkout process you will see "Available Discounts".  This will allow you to select the LTP discount for Boeing employees or the Educational and Training Services discount for all other members.  If you are not sure if your company is a member company, please see our Corporate Program page to view our current list.  Please contact us at 314-935-4444 and we will be able to assist you with any questions you have.  

Payment Options:

We accept Visa, MasterCard, Discover, and AmEx credit cards through our website.  If you are a program participant that qualifies for training discounts, please be sure to associate yourself to that company in your Student Profile.  "Invoice my Company" options will appear if you are part of an organization that has requested this as a payment option.

History of CAIT:

Today's CAIT was founded more than 35 years ago, when a group of data processing managers from key St. Louis companies approached Washington University asking for help. They convinced the University to provide local training in COBOL, mainframe hardware, and other needed skill sets, so they could reduce the cost of sending staff to Chicago, New York, and other remote locations for training. From this beginning as the region's original and most respected IT training center, CAIT has extended its mission and activities over the years to become, in every other way, the true center for IT leaders in the region.

The Technology & Leadership Center Mission Statement:

The Technology & Leadership Center (formally known as CAIT) is an organization within Washington University in St. Louis that serves as the center for information technology (IT) leaders in the St. Louis region.  Our purpose is to help organizations make continuous advancements in productivity and enhance the region's competitiveness as a thriving, world-class IT community.  We accomplish this by providing the forum for IT executive interaction and the highest quality IT training & professional development opportunities, leveraging the resources of Washington University, local IT leaders, and experts and vendors throughout the country.
