About Our Diploma Prep Courses
Our Courses are offered in three different formats: in person, livestreamed, and on demand. For all formats, there is teacher lead instruction that will cover the curriculum through notes and diploma exam style questions, including guidelines and test taking strategies. The course materials students receive contain notes and practice questions.
Our In Person courses are held at the University of Calgary and are the best way to experience the prep. It is easier to communicate with students to clarify issues and to give help. Being part of the live experience is more stimulating and engaging, and students benefit from the structured format. There is time for one-on-one help before, during class, and after class. Room locations will be next to your option number at least five days before the start of your class.
If you can’t attend in person, then the Livestreamed option is still a good choice. It is run at a scheduled time and has live instruction and interaction throughout. Just like the classroom format, there is time for one-on-one help during the breaks, and before and after class. The course materials are only viewable online and cannot be printed or downloaded but will be available to you until the day of the diploma exam (for January and June, there will be an option for students in the Calgary area to pick up a hardcopy of the materials).
The On Demand format is pre-recorded video instruction viewable anytime during the specified four-day period. The course materials are only viewable online and cannot be printed or downloaded but will be available to you until the day of the diploma exam. For January and June, there will be an option for students in the Calgary area to pick up a hardcopy of the materials. The videos and the materials will be available to you at 5pm the day before the first date indicated on your option number. We use the Thinkific platform for our on demand courses. Some on demand options include three to four hours of live teacher help. This will be indicated in the description of the course on our Thinkific page.
