OD Schedule


In 2020 OAO will be adding 6 Category A/COPE continuing education courses to its eLearning platform.

These sessions are being recorded at the 2020 Symposium. Sessions that are being recorded are identified (* This lecture is being recorded) on the Symposium OD schedule.

Member delegates registered for the FULL 3-day 2020 Symposium will be able to access these eLearning courses FREE for six months after the courses are posted to the eLearning platform, as part of their 3-day registration fee. Three-day registered member delegates may still access these courses after the six months on a fee-basis at the member rate of $45 + HST per one-hour course.

NOTE: As this is a member promotion, non-member delegates registered for 3 days are not eligible.

OAO members not attending Symposium; OAO member delegates registered for part of Symposium (one or two days) and non-members may access the eLearning courses once they are posted to the eLearning platform on a fee basis.

eLearning Course Rates: Members: $45 + HST; Non-Members: $60 + HST (per one-hour course)
