Welcome to the BCRPA’s E-Learning web page!

The BCRPA is pleased to now offer learning opportunities in an online format. The advantage, of course, is that you can take the courses whenever, and wherever is most convenient to you. And, if you have to stop part way through a course and come back later, it will remember where you left off! You will find our courses very easy to follow and will learn a lot that you will be able to apply in your workplace.

Getting Started

You will need a BCRPA website account in order to register for and access the courses. There is no fee for this. Having an account will let you keep track of the courses you take and will enable the courses to record where you last left off, if you didn’t finish the course during your last online session. To create a website account, just follow the prompts on the right side of this web page. Then, come back to this page and click on the course you are interested in.
