Welcome to the Code of Practice Course

Hello and welcome to the Code of Practice course!

We are so happy to have you with us – joining our new Horse Portal!    You have joined our learning community to learn about Canada’s Welfare Code of Practice, and we hope you find very helpful knowledge to be gained from your participation in this course.

In The Horse Portal, the online environment is the “classroom”.  I will be using the announcements to communicate with the class each day, and we encourage you to join in the discussions for the different units and respond to the posts of others as well.

Our course is 2 weeks in length.  Each day (Monday through Friday) there will be a unit for you to cover. When you have completed the unit, mark it as completed and then continue to the next one.  There will be quizzes at the end of each week, which are required for completion of the course and to make each student eligible for the Certificate.

Now – let’s get started with unit 1!
