We don’t have prerequisites. However, there is a progression in our schedule. If you want to take several learning events or a certificate, consider beginning in September and working through core learning events before the advanced ones.
Our training is delivered remotely using our online Learning Space and video calls. Custom training can be delivered in-person.
Our trainers live in North, work in recreation, and know how to facilitate learning online. Our trainers understand the realities of Northern and Indigenous communities and take a learner-centred approach making training useful and relevant.
Fees are set based on the type of learning event or certificate. Fees are discounted for individuals living in the Yukon, NWT or Nunavut who are members of their territorial recreation and parks association.
Apart from the fees, there may be other costs such as Internet, use of a computer and smart phone, or a membership with your territorial recreation and parks association.
If cost is a barrier, please contact your territorial recreation and parks association.
Learning Events are scheduled over 2 weeks with 2 video calls and 2 required learning activities (RLAs). We know that life happens so we allow an extra 2 weeks to complete. Some of the advanced learning events take place over 4 weeks.
Plan to spend about 5 to 7 hours on core learning events and 7 to 10 hours on advanced learning events. Certificates can be completed in a year (September and May) or over two years.
Not at the moment. We offer community-based learning that is based on current competencies and trends within the field of recreation.
