As with all Additional Qualification Courses, the Ontario College of Teachers regulates the content, delivery and number of hours that must be dedicated to each course.  Upon successful completion of a course your results will be uploaded to the OCT database.  Although the Ontario College of Teachers regulates the course, you do not have to be a certified teacher to enrol in our additional qualifications offerings - however, you must understand that your results will not be sent to the OCT, nor will they be applied in the future if you happen to complete your teaching qualifications and become an OCT member.  You will have to retake the course at that time if you wish to have it appear on your OCT record - no exceptions.
