Choose a certification option below:

  • Course: An instructor teaches a course that includes an open-book test. 
  • Course - Separate Exam: If the date-town in the list below states "course" "separate exam", this means that we are offering two options on that date:  1) a full day course that includes the test, or 2) a test only writing time, no instruction.  When registering, please indicate your choice.  
  • Refresh and Write: Refresh & Write courses are half a day where you study on your own and come prepared for a short review before writing the test.  Everyone is welcome, even a person certifying for the first time. 
  • Online : A 5 day "non live" online course, available at specific dates throughout the year. Available dates can be found in the table below. If you would like more information on how this works - please see our demonstration video of the online course.

Sort the table to narrow your search by location ("online" or by county) and course type then click "Update Display". If your county/region is not listed, there are currently no offerings for your area. Select a neighbouring county/region.

All sign ups are received regardless of payment. A automated confirm email will immediately follow with an official payment receipt if a credit card payment is made.  If paying by cheque, they are payable to the 'University of Guelph' and mail to OPEP, University of Guelph, 120 Main Street East, Ridgetown, ON  N0P 2C0.
