McMaster University Continuing Education is pleased to announce the NEW Multi-Competency Certificate of Completion. On the completion of five full days of ANY Essentials course work, and the submission of the required evaluation components, participants may request a Multi-Competency Certificate of Completion to acknowledge they have completed the Essentials program requirements. 

In addition to offering the Multi-Competency Certificate of Completion, participants may also transfer up to two full days of Essential courses to be eligible for receiving an additional Essentials Certificate of Completion. This transfer can be done only after demonstrating that an individual has completed 5 days of coursework including an evaluation component for each course within a specified Essentials program.

The course evaluation method is described in each course outline which is distributed in class.  All courses are graded on a pass/fail basis. 

When enrolling in courses, participants should identify that they are enrolled in the specified Essentials Program

Individuals have a maximum of three years from their first eligible course to complete an Essentials Certificate of Completion.
