Interactive Alternative Delivery Courses

As a result of Covid-19, all winter session courses will only be offered by interactive alternative delivery. This adaptive delivery will be online through RRC Polytech’s learning management system (LEARN), entailing approximately 80 % voice over PowerPoint presentations and video resources, and 20 % interactive sessions through WebEx with the course instructor. All participants are required to have access to a computer and high speed internet from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm for each day of the course time frames, as outlined below. As with our face to face courses, some self study is required outside these time frames. Course costs have been reduced as a result of the change in delivery format to reflect the move off campus to remote delivery. Access to the material on LEARN will be available for 3 weeks past the course finish date, as exams do not always directly follow the course. ** The CEU’s credited from MB Environment, Climate and Parks (formerly called MB Conservation and Climate) are the same as for RRC Polytech’s existing face to face training.

The associated certification exams are available to be written in person at 215 Garry Street, Winnipeg (Ricoh Plaza), on a variety of dates outlined below. Exams are also available in Brandon and other Manitoba locations upon request. The listed fees are for the RRC course only; you must register for the exam separately thru Manitoba Conservation and Climate.
