Our proprietary online education model provides a rich and flexible environment to learn. Courses engage all participants by using leading-edge content and collaborative functionality. 

Each course involves a weekly live session where participants from all over Canada and the world, together with the professor, collaborate to develop understanding and promote ideas. 

There are eight weekly sessions per course (except Golf Club Governance, with six sessions). Each course will be evaluated on the basis of experiential assignments and/or tests, which ground your knowledge in the subject area. Work can be completed with the flexibility to satisfy work and family commitments. Some courses will be more involved than others.
We offer two courses every 10 weeks, some of which can be completed independently. The fee for each course is $649.
We trust that you will find our unique online courses to be both educational and enjoyable. 

To register for a course, click the “register” button to the right of the course, fill out your contact information and then click “submit.” You will receive confirmation via email.

If you have not previously provided information about yourself, please complete a short form.
