The didactic portion is completed on-line with an instructor using our Learning Management System (LMS) and Virtual Classroom software. This format allows you to attend the program from anywhere you have access to the internet and provides live interaction with the instructor and fellow classmates. As such, students will require access to a computer, internet and a must have a microphone. The skills and scenario based portions of the program is done as in-class sessions at either our Dartmouth or Moncton campus.
Prior to beginning the program there will be an orientation session that will need to be completed by the student followed by two weeks of self-study and preparation. The program itself is conducted over approximately 11 weeks.
