Dear Member,

In recognition of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we will again offer a virtual self-directed, self-paced training program that satisfies Transport Canada training requirements and enables the issuance of the required competency certification.  This virtual training program will allow us to reach more members than would the in-person only training. We are planning to hold this training in late October.

At this time, we are assessing the demand for DG training. Interested members are asked to contact the undersigned by October 1st.

The approximate time commitment of this virtual program will be as follows:

  • The training window (review of all modules) : 1 week
  • The quiz window (to complete and submit) : 3 days

This timeframe will vary based on each participant’s unique remote working conditions and individual availabilities.

The cost for Federation members will be $175+tax or $250+tax for non-members.

Director, Marine Operations
