Elder Planning Counselor Program (EPC), is a course offered in partnership with the Canadian Initiative for Elder Planning Studies (CIEPS).
The EPC is the first all-Canadian elder educational designation program in Canada which was designed by Canadians for Canadian professionals. The comprehensive modules which make up the program are designed to enrich the knowledge and understanding of professionals working in the 50+ age group through education on the evolving and specialized needs of Canada’s citizens as they age.
Canada’s population is aging. According to the Government of Canada, approximately 15% of the national population is now 65 years of age or older. Canada’s elders represent a specialized market with particular needs and concerns. The Elder Planning Counselor (EPC) program is intended to enrich the knowledge and understanding of professionals on topics focusing on the evolving and specialized needs of Canada’s citizens as they age.
The next course offering runs from September 26 – September 29.
