Course Methodology


CHBA BC is transitioning to a new education website. In order to ensure that all student information, enrollments and course records are transferred to the new system, course registrations will be temporarily unavailable.

If you have any questions, please contact

Registration will re-open shortly.

Thank you for your patience.
All courses are made up of two distinct sections. Section One is self-paced learning and is designed to allow participants to set their own timeline for completion. Section One courses are available online, with a workbook, and online participants can log on and off as often as necessary to successfully complete Section One. The self-paced Section One includes post-chapter tests and a final assignment (see important notes below) that must be sent to the instructor as a prerequisite for the one-day workshop.

Section Two is a one-day in-class workshop that all participants will be required to attend before they can successfully complete the entire program. This in-class workshop will be delivered throughout the province. Those wishing to complete the program can attend anywhere the in-class workshop is being conducted, regardless of where the participant lives.

The one-day in-class workshop, which builds on the learning developed in Section One, will use scenarios and problem-based learning to reinforce concepts and explore shared experiences. Attendees will work in groups and individually. Attendees are required to bring their workbooks and assignments from Section One. A final exam will also be written during the afternoon.

Important Notes:
1. Successful completion of Section One, including the completion of the post-chapter tests, is a prerequisite to attending the in-class workshop. Should a student fail to meet the minimum standard on the chapter tests they will be notified and be required to register to re-take the online chapter tests before they can attend the one-day in-class session. (fee applies)
2. Before confirming registration for the in-class workshop, participants must complete Section One, and their final assignment must be received and graded before they can attend the one-day in-class session. Students will be notified via email whether or not attendance at the in-class workshop will be permitted. Re-registration may be necessary if the assignments are not submitted as required. (fee applies)
3. The post-chapter tests and the final assignment in Section One constitute 50% of the final grade
4. Participants are required to write a final exam that represents the remaining 50%. Re-registration is required if a student fails to achieve a final grade of 80% on their final exam that is written in the afternoon of the one-day in-class session. (fee applies).

Class size will be limited and seats are available on a first-come/first-served basis.
