  3. Once you get the go-ahead from your learning coordinator, register for the approved course through our online registration system.

  5. After you successfully complete the course, submit your Record of Completion to your learning coordinator. You may also print out your homework marks before you leave the course for your own files or to substantiate your successful completion of the course to your learning coordinator.
