Learning Teams

Multi-Company Training
Multi-company training is ideal for companies that are looking to provide a broader management exposure to their employees than just the perspective of their industry. Participants in these sessions are at similar stages in their careers but come from non-competing companies in various industries. This allows participants to speak frankly during the lessons and enriches the learning experience as the managers realize that despite the differences in their industries, many of the challenges they face are universal.

Sessions are held monthly in person in downtown Vancouver.

Private Company Training
Private company training is ideal for companies that would like the training delivered to their company only. They must have ten or more employees that wish to participate in the management training program. Courses can be held at Bellrock or client facilities.

Continuing Professional Development

This course is pre-approved by BC Housing for continuing professional development credits. Participants will earn CPD group A points and CPD group B points.
