Your Learning Plan

Certification of each course must be achieved to receive the diploma. Students enrolled in the program still have the option to complete one course at a time just as they would enrolling one at a time. The only differences are cost, and the advantage of having all of the books for the program on hand for ease of transitioning from course to course.




If you have paid upfront for courses in a diploma program, you are required to finish the program within the maximum number of weeks provided for that program.

If you are taking courses one at a time on an individual basis, you can earn your diploma as soon as all of the applicable courses of that program have been successfully completed. Students have 5 years to complete the required courses, from the start date of their first course, to the completion date of the final course in their particular program.



Regular cost when enrolling in one individual course at a time: $1996.

Special Pricing when enrolling as a Program:  $1800 plus GST/HST (if applicable)
