BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Event Planning Professionals may need to plan sustainable or "green" events as part of an organization's corporate social responsibility (CSR) goals. This course will introduce you to the new international sustainable event standards, and how to measure the environmental impact of an event. You will use these tools to develop a sustainable event for a simulated client.
Students are permitted to register up until the first week without approval. This is not a self-paced course, it is online synchronous. You will be expected to be available and online on the posted days and times shown on your registration schedule. It is important you have a stable and consistent internet connection to access course content.

To be successful in this online course, plan to spend 7-10 hours per week on your studies, or more for a condensed course, starting Week 1.
