COVID-19: April 24, 2020 Update


We're committed to keeping you informed

Fitzgerald is working aggressively to keep you up to date by presenting free Covid-19 webinars and articles from today’s thought leaders (see resources section below).

And to help you continue your educational growth, we’ve also created new innovative Livestream Review and CE courses.




Live Courses Update

Like many of you, we're closely monitoring coronavirus (COVID-19) and its impact on our nation. The safety of our students, instructors and employees remains our top priority.


Live courses will shift to Livestream courses through the end of June 2020

To maintain our commitment to safety, we have decided to further extend the course shift for all of our Live in-person courses through the end of June to Livestream courses using a video conferencing tool called Zoom.

We will continue to monitor the situation and address future courses in a timely manner. Find more information about Zoom at Livestream Reviews.


Fitzgerald will communicate specific course changes with you via email

We will send communications to each student impacted by this change. Please be sure to check your email inbox for important messages regarding your classes from cs@fhea.com. If you do not receive a message, it may have gone to your junk folder. Rest assured that you may contact Fitzgerald’s Customer Service Line at 800-927-5360 and we will be happy to assist you.
