Each module includes one weekend classroom workshop (Saturday and Sunday). Core 1 includes an orientation workshop during the first weekend of the module. Attendance at workshops in their entirety is mandatory. CPA Ontario does not tolerate any instances of absences, lateness, or early departures including lateness/early departures. Any instances of absences, lateness, or early departures may result in the student being withdrawn from the module and 100 per cent of their fees withheld.

Due to COVID-19, there are two online delivery formats of the workshops: virtual and asynchronous. Format of delivery of the workshops will be noted on the PEP schedule and are subject to change in light of developing current events.

Virtual workshops will be held at pre-determined times. Students will attend their workshop through an online platform with a Session Leader leading the workshop in real time. Students must complete pre-work prior to the workshop and fully participate in the activities during the live sessions. Session Leaders and students will work through and debrief activities together during the live sessions.

Asynchronous workshops can be completed at the student’s own pace. Students will be responsible for watching instructional videos and working through activities during the scheduled workshop weekend. It is mandatory for students to watch the videos and submit responses for ALL activities by the submission deadline. Refer to the Dropboxes in D2L for the official deadlines for each specific module.

LOCATION CHANGES CAN BE MADE UP TO ONE WEEK BEFORE THE MODULE START DATE FOR A $50.00+HST FEE.

Please pay careful attention during enrolment and select the location and dates that works best for you; otherwise, you will be placed in a default location/workshop. Location and alternative date changes are not permitted after this period has passed.
