CAIB Immersion

A CAIB Immersion course is a 5 business day (Monday to Friday, 8:00am – 4:30 pm) intensive, instructor-led course held in downtown Vancouver. We email you the location at the time of registration. An Immersion course is a supplement to self-paced study, and you're expected to read the textbook and have a working knowledge of the course content when you get to the first day of class. The paper exam is written on the following Wednesday after class ends. You're automatically enrolled for the exam immediately following the class, unless you specify otherwise. There are 5 courses per year. Tuition costs includes the following:

  • Five days of instruction ($305 for members/$375 non-members)
  • The textbook ($295 for members/$395 for non-members)
  • Supplementary course materials (resource guide and a practice exam with marker's guide­)
  • The paper exam fee (First attempt $395/Rewrites $195)
