This benefit allows you to potentially save on many forms of education - as long as it’s related to your job. This includes registration fees for courses, seminars, and conferences.
These professional development expenses must be connected with your current employment activities, and be required for you to maintain or improve relevant skills or knowledge. Payments can be made directly to the provider or as a reimbursement back to you.
