Courses

Please be advised due to COVID-19, the courses will be offered in a virtual format. Offering courses virtually enables AFM to continue meeting students’ needs during this time. The course material will be modified so that it can be delivered in a virtual setting and courses will be of a shorter duration. While this will be a different learning experience, we are confident that we will be able to provide you with quality and relevant information in this format.

***Please be advised that the AFM course, Older Adults: Substance Use and Gambling, originally scheduled for Nov. 30 and Dec. 1, has been postponed.

The course has been rescheduled to Feb. 23 and 24, 2022 from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. We apologize for the inconvenience.

If you had already registered for the course on its originally scheduled date and would like to remain registered for the new dates in February, no further action is required.

If you have any additional questions, please contact wpgcourses@afm.mb.ca.
