  • Facilitated courses: the deadline to register is 11 business days prior to course start date. If interviewing/screening is required for the program, it must be completed prior to registering. A minimum number of 7–8 participants must be reached for a facilitated course to run. If you are interested in taking a course and there are not enough participants your name will be placed on a waiting list.
