Since IESBC or Vancouver would like to be more environmentally and fiscally responsible, the BC Section of the IES has changed how we provide course material. You will be required to purchase and download the IES course material or purchase and order a hardcopy from the IES website (please be aware that the hardcopy takes about 2 to 3 weeks to arrive:

Follow the instructions on the IES website to download and open the files. The total number of pages is in excess of 1,000. We suggest that you minimize printing the material and so, you will need some type of device (laptop, Surface Pro, IPad, etc.) to use in class. We will also have other supplementary files available through Google Classroom.

In order to pass the course, you will have quizzes throughout the course and a take-home exam given out on the final day.
