CSHBC online learning courses cover essential knowledge about regulatory requirements to support registrants. Completion of free CSHBC-authored courses earn credits toward the required Continuing Competency Credits (CCCs). Completion of UBC IPC on the Run courses and a San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training course also earns CCCs.
CSHBC-authored Online Learning Courses
There are currently three free CSHBC online courses available via the CSHBC Online Courses portal:
- Jurisprudence: Mandatory for new registrants, optional for other registrants.
- Client Consent: Mandatory for new registrants who registered with CSHBC on or after June 29, 2020. Read the Notice to the Professions on the Client Consent course.
- Documentation and Record Management: Optional for all registrants.
For each course completed, you earn 3 credits toward your CCC requirements under CCC Category A3. All CCCs must be self-reported in the Registrant Portal.
All new registrants must complete the Jurisprudence and Client Consent modules in order to be eligible to renew their registration for the first time.
UBC Online Learning Courses
There are also free courses available through UBC’s IPC on the Run portal. To access the courses, you must first create an account. Each hour (or portion thereof) for courses completed will be counted as 1 CCC (if a course takes 45 minutes to complete it will be counted as 1 CCC). Registrants must report these credits in the CSHBC Registrant Portal.

RAUDs, RHIPs, and RSLPs can enroll directly via the San’yas Indigenous Cultural Safety Training website, on the registration page for the course.
When completing the registration steps, registrants must ensure they select the course titled Core ICS Health, Indigenous Cultural Competency Training for Health Care Providers. Other courses offered by San’yas are not approved for CSHBC CCCs.
