Self Paced On-Demand Courses

Historically, we have provided live, online delivery of courses. More recently we have offered on demand versions based on recordings of previous sessions. These self paced courses have become the most popular, by far!

Dozens of participants are currently working through the on demand courses, at times that fit your busy schedules.

Accordingly, we do not have any live deliveries of the entry level courses this Autumn. Stay tuned for live deliveries of some of the advanced courses, but note that the advanced courses are also available in the self paced format.

To support the on demand participants, we provide live Zoom sessions, every two weeks, alternating Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6:30 - 9:00 pm. These have been well attended, very helpful, and an excellent opportunity for questions and discussion. They also provide the instructors with an opportunity to identify the commonly misunderstood learning concepts and to add additional content. Students from any previous courses are also invited to attend.

Contact us to 'get on the list' for the EQUIP Live Support Sessions for On Demand Courses.

To register for the on demand courses, have a look at the COURSES tab and scroll through to the Add to Cart buttons or go directly to the SHOP tab.

We encourage one-on-one contact. We invite you to contact us for a conversation about your training needs and the industry in general, before you commit to taking courses.
