For $175 + HST you have full access to either Virtual or Weekend Warrior classes and instructors, including recorded sessions, but you're not required to attend classes, complete assignments, or write the midterm. Your final grade will be based solely upon the final exam.

5. Auditing a Course: Do you already have your CIP or FCIP, but one of the CIP classes would be helpful in your current position? Auditing may be the answer for your. You aren't required to write the final exam, and you won't receive a CIP credit, but you will benefit from quality instruction. Cost is $175 + HST, plus the cost of books if required, but no examination fee.
