Weekly RPEL workshops

Whether you are at the beginning or near the completion of your application, it is suggested that you attend at least one RPL workshop. These workshops are offered during the day, evening and online in order to be as flexible as possible. 

No special technology is required to participate, just a mobile device or laptop and a set of headphones with microphone. Applicants will log in as guests and do not need special login details.
