Please be advised that we are actively rescheduling all training and events being held in March and April 2020. We remain focused on delivering impactful learning experiences for all. For events further out, we are looking at the possibility of rescheduling or setting up a virtual alternative to help members that need certification renewals. We are happy to work with those unable to attend rescheduled events to provide a refund or credit towards a future event.
The health and safety of our members remains our top priority. There is still much we do not know about the impact COVID-19 will have on our communities and industry. We are closely following the guidance of our provincial and federal health experts and will be complying with their recommendations regarding public events and gatherings.
As we work out the details regarding a rescheduled date, we appreciate your patience and will be in touch in the coming weeks.
Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
