2020 PAES Lab Upgrade Now Available

  • If your lab is getting old, has gotten a lot of use, has never been upgraded, or could just use some refreshing; you may want to consider purchasing this upgrade. No need to panic, it's just fine to keep using the version of PAES that you originally purchased if your budget doesn't allow, or if your lab is still working for you and your students.
  • If you do upgrade, you might want to also consider the brand new PAES Scan App. The PAES Scan App works best with PAES Lab 2020 Edition or the 2020 upgraded lab.

      2020 PAES Video Staff Training Now Available

      • Introducing a new series of PAES videos intended for training the PAES job supervisors who evaluate the PAES employees, supervise or assist in the PAES lab. The first video can also be used by itself as an introduction to PAES. This video can be found on the PAES video section of this website labeled "Video to Learn About PAES".
      • Persons previously trained in person by an authorized PAES trainer are considered trained evaluators, but would benefit by going through the video series as a refresher training.
      • Videos can be watched remotely, and users can go at their own pace.
      • The 15 videos and review quizzes can generally be completed in less than 4 hours.
      • Each one year subscription includes the option for one trainee to complete the online Authorized PAES Evaluator Assessment to receive an Authorized PAES Evaluator Certificate which will be issued via email to the trainee upon gaining an assessment score of 100%.
      • One year subscriptions are $125 each and include one certificate. Renewals are $50 per year ongoing if you choose to renew your annual subscription. However, this login can be shared amongst other PAES and school staff, and the videos can be viewed together in groups either in person in your lab, or by using google hangout, zoom, or the like.
      • To order a training, contact Heidi Johnson for a quote. Let me know how many subscriptions you would like included.
