Courses & Events Policies


Career Professionals of Canada (CPC) is up and running during the Coronavirus crisis. We're doing our very best to maintain full access to courses and member benefits for our community. We are primarily a volunteer-based organization that relies on membership and course registration income to support our programs and services, but we also know that we need to do what we can to help you through the coming weeks.

  • We have now extended a $50 discount on membership until April 30, 2020, and depending on the situation, may extend it indefinitely. CPC members always receive 50% off online courses. Any certified members who are unable to renew at this time, may renew their membership when they are able. At that time, we will reinstate certification.
  • For students who have registered and paid for upcoming courses, we are unable to provide refunds. If you cannot take your course, let us know and we will apply a full credit towards a future course on your account. We will also waive the usual $100 administration fee. If you feel that you cannot commit to completing a course that you have already paid for, contact us for your credit.
  • Until further notice, for students who are mid-course and find they cannot complete and submit the final homework assignment by the last Friday of the course, an extension for homework completion may be granted by the instructor upon written request. Please email your instructor directly to request the extension.
  • We are aware that some of our members and students are concerned about their financial situation at this time. The Government of Canada has released a series of measures to mitigate issues for Canadians.

Thank you for your understanding. Stay safe and keep well.


Withdrawals & Transfers: Requests for withdrawals and transfers must be made in writing by email.

Transfer Credits: No refund of tuition fees is provided for courses or events. If a registrant withdraws or transfers before the start of a course or event, the registrant will receive a credit (fee paid minus $100 administration fee) towards a future CPC course or event. Transfer credit will not be provided if withdrawal occurs after the start of a course or event. 

Course Start: Students are expected to download course resources and introduce themselves on the general forum on or before the first Monday (course start date). Students are expected to spend a similar amount of time on this course as they would in a classroom-based environment of 15 hours over each week.

Course Extensions: Homework and forum entries must be finished by students by the end of the day on Friday (course end date). Access to forums are closed at this time. Upon receiving prior approval by the course instructor, a student may be granted an extension to complete his or her homework over the following weekend, but there will be no access to the course or the forum.

Changes & Customization: We reserve the right to modify or cancel parts of a course if necessary. We can accommodate special online training programs for large organizations and groups; please contact us directly for more information.

Fees & Discounts: All course fees listed are in Canadian dollars and taxes will apply based on the student’s province of residence. CPC Members receive a 50% discount on all professional development courses.
