Course Delivery

Courses are offered every week in both Western and Eastern Canada and begin the Monday of each week. Please get in touch if you would like to discuss a customized schedule.

The course is delivered through presentation of a series of lectures and in class exercises, supplemented by further self-study exercises. The course is delivered over 4 days and includes IWCF written assessments on the final day.


The following certification options are provided and are made up of compulsory and optional components:

Candidates must attempt both compulsory components and one or more optional component in a combined certification programme.
