Education

The AABC offers a range of educational opportunities including distance education courses, workshops (in-person and online), instructional webinars, and roundtables scheduled throughout the year. These diverse professional development opportunities are both valuable for those new to archival work but also offer practicing archivists the opportunity to refresh their skills or delve deeper into a particular type of archival record or specialized topic.

Courses, workshops, webinars and roundtables may also be of interest to colleagues in the wider heritage community who find themselves working with archival records or members of the public who are interested in learning about archival topics.


Registration Deadlines & the Fine Print

Most AABC education opportunities are open to any interested participant. However, if space is limited or if demand is high, the AABC will give priority to its members. 

Any request to cancel an active registration will be charged a $15.00 administration fee. Any refund requests must also be received in writing at least 21 days prior to the workshop/course unless otherwise indicated. After that date, registration fees are non-refundable.

For distance education courses, registration fees are non-refundable once the course has begun.

Should the AABC cancel a workshop, all registration fees will be reimbursed in full.

All workshops are limited to twenty (20) participants, unless otherwise indicated in the workshop description. Members are strongly advised to Register Early as courses with inadequate registration will be cancelled. Participants are asked to ensure they arrive on time for the start of workshops and not to leave before the full completion of the course.

Member institutions can send a maximum of 3 employees/volunteers to a workshop at the reduced membership rate.

For more information on our courses or workshops please contact the EAS Coordinator at aabc.advisor@aabc.ca.
