There is no application process. You register for each workshop as you’d like to take it. We track your progress and grant the certificate when you’ve met the requirements.
There are no documents required.
We transitioned to a new online registration platform and student portal in December 2020 so you may not yet have an account in our new platform. First, try to request a new password using the steps above. If you do not have an account in our new system, you will get a message indicating that there is no account associated with that email address. To create a new account:
Unfortunately, no. At this time we can only accept MasterCard, Visa, AMEX and Visa Debit.
Is there a discount for seniors or students?
We do not offer a senior’s/student discount on our Professional Development program.
No. However, if you have a number of staff that you would like to attend the same workshop, you may want to consider customized training, which can be more cost effective. Contact Lynne Jordan at email@example.com for more information.
Yes! We offer a 10% discount when you register for four or more workshops at once*. Once you've added four or more workshops to your cart, click Apply a Discount under each workshop and select FSWPD 10% Discount from the drop-down menu. If you experience any issues with the discount, please contact the Professional Development office at firstname.lastname@example.org before registering as the discount cannot be applied retroactively.
We also offer a 50% discount on additional CBT Level II courses. Once you've completed the CBT certificate (both Level I and Level II) you are eligible to take other CBT Level II courses at a 50% discount. Contact the Professional Development office at email@example.com to request the discount code.
* The CBT program is exempt from the 10% discount. This includes the CBT Certificate, CBT Lunch and Learns, the Masterclass in CBT Supervision and the Supervision and Consultation Groups. The CBT Boot Camps are eligible for the discount.
According to CRA guidelines, only our online CBT courses are eligible for T2202 tax forms. See the T2202 Tax Receipts page for further information. If you have not received your 2020 T2202 tax form, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Unfortunately, no. This is a non-credit professional development program and is not eligible for OSAP funding.
No. All workshops and courses offered by Professional Development are non-credit, meaning that they do not appear on a Laurier transcript.
You can register for your Level II course before completing your Level I course, but the dates cannot overlap. Your Level I course must have ended, and you must have successfully met the requirements, before the start date of your Level II course.
No. Some workshops are cross-listed between one or more certificates, but you can only use that workshop towards the requirements for one certificate.
Our online courses are fully asynchronous, meaning you never have to be online at any particular time. You do need to log on each week to read the course material, complete a short quiz and participate in the discussion questions but when you do that is up to you.
Remote workshops are the same as our in-person workshops, except instead of being in a classroom on campus, the training is live streamed through Zoom. The training is interactive and held in real time (9 a.m. to 4 p.m. ET).
Our online courses are completely asynchronous; you never need to be online at any particular time. You do need to log on each week to read the course material, complete a quiz and participate in the mandatory discussion questions, but when you do that is up to you. Your instructor will participate in the discussions and will be available by email to answer additional questions.
Log in to your student portal at continuingeducation.wlu.ca. From the menu on the left select "Access MyLearningSpace." Your online course will be available at 12:01 a.m. on the start date.
