Distance Delivery

Complete the entire certificate (30 credits) through part-time distance study at your convenience. Course delivery is flexible, allowing you to balance family, work and learning.

What Is Distance Delivery?

  • Studying at you own pace from home.
  • Learning materials are provided by mail or online, and instructor support is available toll-free over the telephone.
  • Dedicating approximately 20 hours per week for readings per course. Assignments and examination study time would be extra.
  • Completing practical examinations in performing skills such as audiometry, spirometry, vision screening and venipuncture. With instructor consultation, most examinations can be arranged to be completed in your own area.
  • Taking the initiative to help your instructor identify potential sites for courses that require field visits. This is very important if you reside outside of Alberta.

As a nurse committed to lifelong learning, I found this program to be the best one I have been involved with. The courses were well-organized and the instructors were very helpful. ~ Lynn Brambilla, BN Manager (OHS) St. Boniface General Hospital
