Please use the buttons below only if you are enrolling and plan to take courses one at a time rather than all together at once as per the buttons above. If you are taking individual courses, please ensure that you have already completed the pre-requisites for the course, which you identified on the course page. In this option, students enroll in the program but take one course at a time, each with its own tuition and deadline. The tuition for each course is $130 CDN / Approx. $99 USD and the time allowed will be 2 weeks per course. Pre-requisites must be observed. If you select a course for which you have not finished a prerequisite, we will enroll you in one of the pre-requisite courses that have not been covered instead so check pre-requisites. Please also note: this option ends up being much more expensive than taking the program as a whole and is more time restrictive as well. Tuition may change at any time as well but with the program as a whole, everything us al locked in upon enrollment so there would be no further fees.
