PASS offers courses through 3 venues:
- Live Online
- Video Online
Courses are offered in-class sessions in both Toronto and Edmonton. The classes in Toronto are at the University of Toronto which is accessible by Subway. Students who enjoy face to face interaction with an instructor and live close enough to a city in which in-class sessions are offered, should take the in-class version of a course.Live Online
The live online courses are offered electronically; students can therefore take the courses from any location. All they need is a computer.
The live online courses will be held on specific dates. Students will log-in using the internet to access a web site and will follow the live sessions on their computers; the sessions are conducted by a live instructor. Students will have the opportunity to ask questions orally or using a chat box as the sessions are conducted in real-time.
The online courses will be ideal for students who cannot attend the in-class sessions, i.e. live too far from a city where the in-class course is offered, cannot attend the in-class course or simply enjoy the online experience.
The sessions will be recorded and students will have the ability to access the recording at any time after the session, allowing students who missed a session or want to review a point, to go back and access the session.
All sessions are recorded. Therefore students in both the in-class and live online classes who miss a session or want to review a session, can view a recording of the session at any time that is convenient.Video Online
PASS has been teaching candidates how to pass the CA/CPA exams for over 25 years. Our experience has taught us that students learn best in class or live online. In the past, the vast majority of our students chose the in-class or live online option, as nothing can replace a live instructor who can answer questions, interact with students and clear up misunderstandings. This applies when teaching technical and when teaching case writing.
Therefore, our recommended options for the various courses we offer are either the in-class or live online option. For those students who cannot attend the sessions in-class or cannot make the live online sessions (due to scheduling issues or work related conflicts etc.), we offer an online video option, whereby students can watch videos of all of the sessions rather than attend sessions live. Enjoy Flexibility
To offer full flexibility, student who take a PASS course that is being offered both in-class and live online can enjoy the best of both worlds – the in-class and online worlds - by mixing and matching. For example, students can sign up for a particular format – say the in-class format –and then attend an online session to make up for an in-class session they miss. Note
For some course offerings, only the in-class or online venues will be available. Please consult the schedule to identify what venues are available for a given offering.
