What is the price of each self-paced online course?
Prices are posted on the e-store site at store.thtcentre.com.
Once I register how long do I have to wait to get access to the course(s)?
Participants are given access to self-paced online courses immediately after registration and payment.
All purchases through invoice are THTC staff approved and as a result there will be a delay in accessing self-paced online courses.
Once the request has been approved by THTC staff, registrants will then receive an email confirming course access.
I am a THTC member but I have not received a discount.
The status of the agency/ individual at the time of registration is what is considered regarding THTC/ Non-THTC rate course payment.
For example, if the agency/individual becomes a THTC member after the registration date the agency/individual will not be reimbursed the difference between the Non-THTC and THTC rate.
The agency/individual pays the course rate equal to their status at the time of registration.
For more information, please see the Membership section of the website.
How do I apply for a refund?
Participants registering for self-paced online training are eligible for a full refund provided they cancel their training within 7 business days of registration and have not accessed the online course.
Due to the increased number of registrations being cancelled shortly after the registration requests are received by THTC, cancelling self-paced online training in under 7 business days from the date of the date registered, will result in an administration charge of $40. Beginning September 1, 2019, THTC will be charging $10 on all refund requests for payments made online through PayPal or using the Centre’s in person debit machine.
The $10 administration charge will be deducted from the amount being refunded.
Are discounts available?
From time to time the training centre will offer per person discounts that are for the exclusive use of the specified recipient.
Can I be invoiced?
Payment by invoice is only available to selected THTC member agencies.
Individuals are not eligible for payment via invoice.
All purchases through invoice are THTC staff approved and as a result there will be a delay in accessing self-paced online courses. Once the request has been approved by THTC staff, registrants will then receive an email confirming course access.
How much time will I have to complete the self-paced online course(s)?
Each course could take 6 hours or more to complete. Participants are encouraged to plan their schedule accordingly.
Is it necessary to finish the self-pace online course in one sitting?
No. The courses are designed so that you can complete them one module at a time and take breaks between them. You can even complete part of a module and return to it at your convenience. The course will remember where you left off. Once you complete a quiz, the module will be marked complete in the LMS.
It is recommended that you take breaks but keep in mind that you have thirty (30) days to complete the course.
How many modules are there in each self-paced online course?
Each course is different but there are between 4-7 modules in a course.
How many quiz questions are there in each workshop?
Each course has 4-7 modules and each module has 5-10 quiz questions, so there could be anywhere from 20 – 70 questions in a course.
Participants will have an unlimited number of tries to achieve a passing quiz mark.
What is the format of the quiz questions?
Quiz questions are either Multiple/Choice, True/False, or Drag and Drop format.
When will I get my certificate of participation?
As soon as you complete your self-paced online course you will receive a certificate by email in pdf format.
Will I be able to save a copy of my certificate?
Yes, you will receive a certificate in PDF format once you have completed the course which you can save to your PC or print.
I am unable to complete my self-paced online course before the course deadline. What do I do?
In order to request a course extension, you must contact THTC within at least seven (7) business days before the 30 day course completion deadline.
Please note, holidays and weekends are not included within the seven (7) business day deadline.
Once the course deadline has been reached, the course cannot be extended as participants are automatically un-enrolled from their course and will no longer have access to workshop materials.
How do I report my completion of training?
Your completion details will be tracked on the Learning Management System.
I have not completed my course but was automatically un-enrolled.
Participants will be automatically un-enrolled from their self-paced online course(s) once the completion deadline has been reached.
Participants will no longer have access to workshop materials after the completion deadline.
It is the participant’s responsibility to track their course completion deadlines.
The Toronto Hostels Training Centre is not responsible for managing participant’s course completion deadlines.
To reinstate one’s course, participants must return to the e-store and purchase their course again following the course registration steps.
How do I reinstate my self-paced online course(s)?
The process to reinstate is the same as registering for a new self-paced online course.
Participants must return to the e-store and purchase their course again following the course registration steps. In this case, participants no longer have access to their prior course materials as they have been automatically un-enrolled.
The course has not been completed within the 30-day deadline.
Will self-paced online courses count toward a THTC certificate ?
Yes, they will. If you are working toward a THTC certificate, email firstname.lastname@example.org to confirm the completion of your course.
