COVID-19 Update: Please note that CPCO AQ courses will continue to be offered as scheduled, transitioning face-to-face sessions to virtual platforms such as Zoom, Google Meets and/or Microsoft Teams during periods of closure as directed by the government.

When required, face-to-face courses will transition to alternate schedules decided collaboratively by instructors and candidates.

Upcoming sessions

 

CPCO Principal's Qualification courses are offered through the calendar year and in three ways (Online, Regional and Board Partnership).

All courses are 125-hours in length and courses are open to all qualified teachers who wish to apply.

Online courses are composed of 15-hours face-to-face via Zoom, plus 85-hours online independent plus 25-hours independent. Participants are required to be active, engaged and online for all scheduled sessions via Zoom software. Candidates must have the technology required for full participation (reliable internet connection, webcam, and audio headset; hardwire connection is preferred).

Board Partnership courses are offered by CPCO in partnership with local Catholic District School Boards on individualized schedules that are advertised on the PQP website as they are finalized.

Note: These courses are open to all qualified applicants regardless of Board affiliation.
