Addiction Education

Bridging the gap between theory
and practice.

New! Pilot Instructor-led Online Course ADD 827 Intro to Addictions available this winter

Courses, Schedules & Fees

Students registered in online self-study (OSS) courses have four months or six months to complete course requirements depending on the class. Students may complete coursework ahead of posted schedule. Online self-study courses begin on the first of each month.

Student fees of $7 per unit of credit have been included in the listed tuition fee.

With the change-over to the Mosaic enrolment system, course numbers have changed but course titles and content have not.

In-person and online formats now share the same course number. Take care to choose your desired format when enrolling.
