Online Education

Unifor offers a number of introductory courses online via our e-learning platform. These online courses cover everything that a newly elected local executive needs to know to develop skills as a leader. 

Unifor offers two types of online courses: 

1. Scheduled live courses when Discussion Leaders and participants engage in a mix of online and off-line materials throughout the course. These courses are 1-3 days in length. 

2. Self directed courses that allow the member to advance on their own at their own pace. These courses are faster modules, and are designed to be completed in 30-90 minutes.
