Eligibility & Fees
POPARD is funded by BC’s Ministry of Education to provide training for employees of BC School Districts and BC independent schools that follow the BC Ministry of Education’s curriculum.
BC School District and BC Independent School Employees should register for POPARD training using their personal school district email address. The school district email address allows POPARD to confirm that registrants are employed by a BC school / BC independent school.
There is a non-refundable administration fee for all courses and most workshops provided by POPARD. Please refer to the specific course or workshop page for more information and specific fees.
Registrants of POPARD courses who are not employed by a BC school or BC independent school must pay a $300 tuition fee (in addition to the admin fee). Note this tuition fee applies to POPARD courses only – there is no tuition fee for POPARD workshops.
All admin fees are non-refundable and non-transferable. Tuition fees will be refunded if notice of cancellation is received at least 2 weeks before the first day of class.
