Upcoming CDME Courses

See upcoming courses!

The CDME Board has determined a standard rotation of courses to improve course planning, travel, and budgeting for our participants. This rotation applies to the three Learning Week sessions (typically in February, July, November). Special sessions, such as those held in Alberta, are not guaranteed to occur, and are variable based on the needs of involved partner groups.

Please note: Courses and instructors are subject to change. To receive CDME credit for a course, you must be in attendance for 100 percent of the scheduled course time.
