Considerations:

  • The course is asynchronous, so students will not need to adjust their timetable. However, this is a rigorous post-secondary course and is the equivalent of one, 5 credit semester course
  • Students must submit a Personal Learning Schedule (see application checklist for details) to support the minimum of 5-8 hours of course work per week
  • Students will be expected to communicate with both their supervising teacher and SAIT instructor on a regular basis

Program Del​​​iv​ery and Location
