Please fill in the AQ registration form (or the AQ mentoring registration form if you are registering for WLU1801: Mentoring) completely, including payment information. Incomplete registration forms cannot be processed. You will find information at the bottom of the registration form about submitting your form by email, fax or Canada Post.

Within five business days of submitting your form, you will be sent an email confirming that your form has been received and outlining any further information required. All correspondence will be sent to the mailing and email address that you have provided on your form so please notify the AQ office if there are any changes to this information.

The confirmation of teaching experience form is required for part two and specialist courses. You should allow sufficient time for the form to be completed by your supervisory officer and submitted to the AQ office well in advance of the start date of the course. This process can take a number of weeks. You will be registered with condition until that time and cannot begin the course without this form on file with us. A new form is required for each part two or specialist course. Forms from previous courses cannot be used to satisfy this requirement.

Courses run based on sufficient registration numbers. Shortly after registration closes, you will receive an email letting you know if your course is running. If it is, you will receive follow-up emails with location and parking information, the student handbook, contact information for your instructor and procedures for online course modules. If you have indicated on your form that you are interested in a second choice if your first choice is not running, you will receive an email asking you to confirm that you would like your registration transferred to the alternate course.
