Athabasca University in partnership with the Business of Hockey Institute now offers single course registration within the Certified Hockey Professional Education Program (CHP-PrEP).
Students registering in single courses will be considered “visiting students”. Should a student wish to later enrol in the MBA CHP-PrEP or CHP-PrEP, after completing a single course(s) as a visiting student, they may be eligible to do so provided they meet all entry criteria of the AU MBA and/or the CHP and apply for admission within a reasonable time frame.
Registering for a CHP course as a visiting student
The CHP requires three years of management experience (managerial experience: experience managing people, projects, and/or budgets) within hockey-related organizations. Ideally, members should be working within hockey-related organizations.
To register in a single CHP course, applicants must submit the following:
- A completed application form, including the $200 application fee.
- Resume which clearly indicates management experience and experience in hockey and hockey-related organizations.
- A brief essay or cover letter which clearly states why you wish to complete one or more of the CHP courses (to a maximum of five courses).
Once your application package has been received, you may be contacted by the Business of Hockey Institute for a phone interview as part of the admission decision.
There are a small number of openings in each course for visiting students (single course takers). Priority will be given to those with experience working in a hockey-related industry, then to individuals with strong hockey backgrounds, and finally to those who are able to demonstrate that the course will assist them in pursuing a career in hockey.
Prior to beginning any online courses, students are required to take a one week orientation to ensure you are prepared for the online learning environment and set-up for success.
There are five single courses that are available to take within the CHP-PrEP program:
