Understanding the difference between facilitated and self-guided courses


During facilitated courses, clients will work with an instructor. One of our instructors will work with you to guide you through the course and answer your questions. SOPA instructors located in the province of your destination. That means an additional information that our instructors provide you with, in each course, is tailored to your province of destination. SOPA instructors will help you improve your resume, answer questions on Canadian workplace culture and much more. You will get personalized one-on-one support.


Self- Guided

If you need flexibility or prefer studying on your own, then our four self-guided courses are just for you! Self-guided courses are without an instructor, but that doesn't mean that you will be completely on your own. Our self-guided course monitor will be there to help you with your enrolment or any other questions that you may have during your self-guided courses.
