Are you looking for more flexibility and enjoy learning at your own pace? Are you a self-disciplined and self-driven learner?

 

If so, you may want to consider taking one of the BC Water & Waste Association's (BCWWA) online courses. The online content covers the same material as the in-class course, and earns the same number of continuing education units (CEUs).
 

Online learning doesn't have to be lonely learning. All of our courses include access to a course instructor who is available to answer questions and guide your learning - a great safety net for your investment.

 

Online courses are offered in 12-week sessions throughout the year. You can expect to study an average of about three hours per week. Visit our class calendar and register today.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

Can I complete the course at my own pace?
Yes, for the majority of the time you set the pace. You decide when you want to view the presentations and complete the course work. However, every course has an end date and you are expected to have competed all reading and assignments by the time the course closes. If you do not complete the course work on-time, you will not be eligible to receive CEU credits.

 

What if I prefer to read the manual and study offline, on my own?
The online courses are structured to provide you with learning modules that build your knowledge and competencies. The presentations, student forums, exercises, case studies, and quizzes are important components of the learning experience, and you are encouraged to take advantage of these tools.
 

Do I need to complete all the course work to pass?
Yes. Successful completion is defined as completing all of the course work by the time the course closes. If you do not complete all of the work, you will not pass.
 

How does the BCWWA monitor and report to the Environmental Operators Certification Program (EOCP) on CEUs?
Our online courses are hosted on a learning management system that keeps track of when you log in, which pages you look at and how much time you spend on every activity. It also keeps a log of which quizzes you work through and the portion of the quiz that you complete. Following the course end date, the BCWWA notifies the EOCP regarding the students who have completed the course in its entirety.

When you submit an application for CEUs to the EOCP for completing an online BCWWA course, the EOCP will contact the BCWWA to verify that you have completed the course.
