Professional Development Opportunities

IBET has partnered with Mitacs to offer professional development courses to IBET fellows

About our curriculum:

This curriculum contains 8 course bundles covering a variety of subjects. Each course bundle has two courses (except the Research & Development course); the first is a self-paced online course, and the second is a facilitated session with an instructor over Zoom. The first course is a pre-requisite for the second and must be completed before you will be able to choose a date for the facilitated session.

You can learn more about the courses Mitacs offers on our website: Training Courses | Mitacs
