Courses and Certification


Annual In-Person Courses

Wheelchair Skills Program full-day practical workshops have been held annually (usually in mid to late October) in Halifax since 2004.

Additionally, we put on a variety of practical workshops in various locations each year, ranging from 2 hours to 5 days in duration. For further information about dates and locations, please contact

For 2021, assuming that COVID restrictions do not necessitate cancellation, the full-day in-person Course will be held Monday October 18, 2021 at the Nova Scotia Rehabilitation and Arthritis Centre in Halifax.
