How to Enroll in Privacy Training

The training can be completed individually or as a group. 

It is recommended that training be completed individually as a self-directed on-line course however special arrangements can be made to have a group complete the training. The course is module-based and takes approximately one hour to complete.

The training is a one-time only requirement so if an individual has already completed the privacy training while working for a ministry or another service provider, and they can provide proof of completion, they do not need to retake the privacy training. Please note that the training is a requirement for all new hires.
