There are many advantages! For example:
- No travel costs
- The ability to learn on your schedule
- Access to topics and presenters regardless of your location
- The ability to start, stop, and review as needed
- The ability to connect with other learners across the country and beyond
The flip side is not being able to connect in person with colleagues – if you prefer learning in a group, consider combining online learning with regular meetings with others. As well, CPA’s courses offered through Vocalmeet can be purchased at a discount for groups of 5 or more.
There are a variety of steps you can take:
- Schedule your learning (as you would any other appointment)
- Take breaks after every hour or so of content
- Discuss the content with others
- Take notes and refer back to them in a few days/at regular intervals
The course registration rates are available in the catalogue. As a benefit of membership, CPA members and students receive significantly reduced rates. APA members can receive the CPA member discount by becoming a CPA member, which is possible at a 50% discount. Please contact membership for more information.
