Health Professional Development

Given the directive from Douglas College dated March 16, 2020 the Continuing Education Health Sciences department will be transitioning to online learning effective immediately. We are making every effort to continue with our course offerings as planned as to minimize any disruptions to registrants. If an upcoming course offering is going to be cancelled we will contact you directly ahead of time to let you know and to review your options. Although the BREV 1100 course is traditionally a face-to-face course, it will temporarily be offered as a live-instruction, online course. Details are still being finalized and will be provided to registrants ahead of time. 

Regular updates on COVID19 are being posted on the main Douglas College website. Thank you for your continued patience and understanding. The health and safety of all of our instructors, staff, registrants, and the public remain our utmost priority. As a CEHS team we are doing our best to adapt to this rapidly changing situation.

In Continuing Education Health Sciences, we're dedicated to providing high-quality distance, classroom and workplace-based education, training and services for people and organizations. We view training from a global perspective, training tomorrow's leaders today.

We believe professional development is an essential part of maintaining ongoing competency and skill training in health and human services fields. Our health courses, programs and customized training are designed to meet the learning needs of the future as identified by professionals, paraprofessionals, health care workers and employers.

We provide academically approved courses and certificate programs, recorded on your Douglas College transcript.

We’ve been making some changes to support you and your learning better by streamlining processes, and developing new courses and programs.  You will find the Student Handbook and information about our updated registration, extension and examination processes in the Registration and Administration section, and detailed descriptions of our new courses are added as they become ready for registration.

Detailed information about each of our programs and courses is available through the links in the column on the left of your screen.  Please review the listings and check back frequently to see what’s new. 

If you are an employer and are interested in organizing specialized workplace training, please contact Angela Heino, Coordinator of Continuing Education in Health Sciences at 604-777-6528 or

Come learn with our dynamic instructors, and let us be your partner in continuing education.
