UPCOMING SCHOOLS

 

 

Fall Virtual Operator School
Online - Remote Delivery

 

With the ongoing risks associated with Covid-19 we have decided to deliver a number of our courses in a new online format. In an effort to make these as close to an in-class experience as possible, these courses will be delivered by a live instructor in real-time and they will run for the same lengths and times that the in-class course would have. So a 5 day course that would run from 8-4 pm from Monday to Friday will still run the same way with the same instructor, you'll just be listening and interacting with your live instructor from the safety of your computer instead of being in a physical classroom. Keeping you safe while providing opportunities to acquire your CEU's is our top priority.

 

**Registration Cut-off will happen 2 weeks prior to the start date of each class.

Nanaimo Operator School

 

The BCWWA has been working with the Vancouver Island Conference Centre to create an Operator School that ensures appropriate physical distancing and attendee health. Class sizes will be kept to a minimum and proper sanitization and protective guidelines will be in place. More information on specific safety guidelines will be sent to students prior to the event.

 

Please note: If provincial safety guidelines change prior to the event, the Nanaimo event will convert to online-remote delivery with live real-time instructors. We will evaluate the recommendations of the provincial health officer at the start of November.
