 New Policy



The TEACH Project has implemented a new policy affecting all participants who have completed and obtained their University of Toronto Certificate in Intensive Cessation Counselling (i.e. completed the Core Course and one Specialty Course) and wish to attend an additional TEACH specialty course. This new policy (effective July 1. 2012) stipulates that travel, accommodation, & course fees for any additional specialty courses will no longer be subsidized by the TEACH Project. We do strongly encourage past participants and Certificate Program completers to return for Specialty courses to continue learning specialized tobacco interventions for specific populations, however the costs associated with attending these courses will need to be absorbed by the participant and/or their organization.  

Those who would like to return for an additional Specialty course will be required to pay a $500 course fee along with all costs associated with travel and accommodation. The $500 fee will be paid directly to the TEACH Project upon acceptance, and travel and accommodation must be booked by the participant. This policy will not apply to those who have yet to complete all mandatory requirements and obtain their Certificate (i.e. have taken the Core Course and still need to attend a Specialty course) or to new students.
We thank you for your cooperation in observing this new policy.
