RESPTREC® is Canada's leading continuing education program which offers courses geared to all disciplines of health care professionals who are involved in chronic disease management.
All courses are independently offered and can be completed in any order based on what is relevant to the learner.

RESPTREC® is an important resource for building and enhancing competencies, skills and knowledge towards becoming effective educators and valued members of an integrated environment of chronic disease management care. Our continuing education opportunities provide RESPTREC® students with lifelong mentorship and learning.
RESPTREC® provides learning that works for you.
All of our courses consist of specific components which must be fulfilled in order to receive a diploma for successful completion. This diploma will be located in your learning centre profile for you to print or save electronically.
We offer two streams of education:
Your application will be reviewed and confirmed by RESPTREC® administration. You will receive a confirmation email when the course officially begins, at or near the registration deadline.
When registering for a Combined Online and Workshop Course, please note the importance of the registration deadline. This deadline is in place to ensure that you have ample preparation time to complete the online learning centre pre-workshop component.
The Spriometry course follows the same format as the other Combined Online + Workshop Courses, with the following exceptions:
Your application will be reviewed and approved by RESPTREC® administration. You will receive a confirmation email which will indicate that you can proceed to the online learning centre to begin your course.
You will have 6 months to complete the Online-Only Course from the date you begin your work in the learning centre.
Throughout the online-only course Independent Learning Activities will be recommended. These activities are designed to enhance your learning. As an independent learner it is critical that you take time to practice the skills necessary to become a competent respiratory educator.
As with other educational institutions, our program requires that each learner complete assignments independently. Plagiarism, the use of material received or purchased from another person or prepared by any person other than the individual claiming to be the author, will result in an incomplete program status.Adapted from the University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Policies and Regulations, 2007
