You can enter the program already meeting the 3-year work experience requirement. You can also earn it during the program or after completing the program. You will not receive the CM designation until you have earned the necessary work experience.
Using online sharing tools and resources (i.e. DropBox, Email, etc.), you will have to work remotely with your group members that will be assigned by the facilitator. Your facilitator will organize this through the online learning platform.
In extenuating circumstances, a deferment may be requested. Requests for deferment should be made in writing (email is acceptable) stating reasons why a deferment should be granted. All deferment requests must be received prior to the start of week 5. Students may only defer to the next available semester.
At this time, we are only accepting candidates from an accredited Canadian university or college with a diploma or degree.
This program is intended for working professionals to be a part-time professional development program. Each course requires 4-8 hours per week of course work to ensure it is achievable for those working full-time.
