What is GPA eLearning?
GPA eLearning is an adapted version of our standard GPA Basics Education curriculum. It allows participants to learn at their own pace, at times that are personally convenient. GPA eLearning guides participants to better understand dementia and its responsive behaviours in order to respond effectively, respectfully and safely in the health care setting.
IMPORTANT! GPA eLearning is not intended to replace the full-day GPA Basics curriculum. The GPA Certified Coach Delivery Model is the preferred/recommended method.
What are the timelines to complete the GPA eLearning program?
The program must be completed within 4 weeks from start date. For the most integrated, immersive experience, we recommend finishing the course in one session (2 to 3 hours).
