Virtual delivery
This course opens with a self-directed module (Module 1) that focuses on the information and strategies that participants will discuss and practice throughout the virtual classroom modules (Modules 2 and 3).
• Course participants are required to complete Module 1 independently (about two hours in length) before continuing to Modules 2 and 3. Modules 2 and 3 are virtually led with the facilitator on the scheduled date. (More information about delivery can be found at this link.)
• Further details will be provided to you after registration.
• Because of the required pre-work, there is a hard registration deadline of one week prior to virtual course delivery.
• The Mental Health Commission of Canada has stated that only those participants who attend all 3 Modules in full will be eligible for a certificate. If you do not complete Module 1 in time, or are late
to Modules 2 or 3, you will not be granted access to continue.
• Missed Modules or lost access codes will not be eligible for a certificate or a refund.
