Lifestyle, Community, and Professional Education

The Lifestyle, Community, and Professional Education Department serves a broad population of learners committed to Lifelong Learning. Some are developing skills to take their career to the next level, others are training for a new career, and still others simply want to learn something new for their own personal growth and development.

Our individual courses cover a wide variety of topics valuable for both personal and professional growth and development. Current highlighted courses include:

  • The Psychology of Food/Eating
  • Nutrition and Mental Health
  • Inter-professional Team Leadership for Allied Health Professionals
  • Workplace Violence Prevention
  • From Grit to Grace: Cultivating Resilience and Coping with Stress
  • Medicinal and Culinary Herbalism and Plant Medicine
  • Your Personal Myths: The Stories You Live By

We also offer non-credit, CEU approved certification programs in subjects such as:

  • Workplace and Healthcare Violence Prevention
  • Inter-professional Team Leadership for Allied Health Professionals
  • Urban Critical Incident Response
  • Integrative Nutrition and Health Science

We’re adding new courses and certificate options all the time so be sure to sign up for updates and latest news.


Course Delivery
Our CEU approved courses are delivered online to accommodate our learner’s varied schedules and typically run for eight (8) weeks or less. Exact schedules are identified in the individual course descriptions. Most courses are instructor led, however, there are a few Independent Study options. The course description explains what the course is about to help you choose which courses are for you that will change your life!

Instructor-led courses can include synchronous and/or asynchronous activity; discussion forums, webinars, and live chats occurring within particular time-frames, which are identified in individual course descriptions.

Independent Study courses are learner paced and have ongoing registration.

Courses are accessed through Moodle, Casa Loma College’s e-campus. Upon registration, Learners will be provided a profile and account/course access.


CONTINUING EDUCATION UNITS (CEUS)
Casa Loma College awards Continuing Education Units (CEUs) to those who complete designated courses, workshops and seminars. The Continuing Education Unit (CEU) is a uniform measurement of individual participation in non-credit programs. One Continuing Education Unit represents 10 contact hours (ex. for a designated course 30 contact hours = 3 CEUs). Records kept for those students who accumulate CEUs will be available upon written request from the Registrar’s Office.

CEU’s are offered in accordance with approval from identified professional organizations.
