The CEC offers a wide range of professional development workshops in administration, communications, marketing, media relations web/social media and writing that respond to individual and organizational training needs. All CEC workshops are available via live, instructor-lead, online delivery. The majority of our workshops are offered on an open-registration basis up to three times per year. Further, all CEC workshops are available for in-house delivery. This means you can secure a time and location convenient for your group and we'll bring the workshop to you. In-house workshops allow for content to be customized to meet your specific needs and provide added value when learning as a team to achieve pre-determined goals. If you are interested in a workshop that has not been scheduled or would like more information on booking an in-house workshop, please contact us.
