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 school district employee email address. The employee email address provides confirmation that registrants are employed by a BC school / BC independent school. Visit our Upcoming Training Dates page to see all currently scheduled courses and workshops.
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.
A limited number of seats are available to registrants who are not employed by a BC school or BC independent school. Non-school attendees must complete the appropriate registration form (including explaining why they are interested in taking the training) and pay the respective training fee.
Cancellation Policy & Refunds
All fees are non-refundable and registrations are non-transferable. Tuition fees will be refunded if written notice of cancellation is received (by email, to POPARD’s training coordinator) at least 4 weeks before the first day of class.
