Important notes for the 2017-18 program (some new, some reminders)
- Enhanced training must be 3+ hours in length and cover one subject area
- Course outlines and details will be required and indepth information and other details may be requested (especially from in-house trainings that do not have a great deal of information)
- In-house training will be more heavily scrutinized, so make sure you design specific eligible training that meets the criteria and the hour requirement
- Enhanced training must be for certified PSWs
- Food and refreshment costs are not eligible for courses that are less than 6 continuous hours of training
- No conferences are eligible
- Late submissions are at the discretion of MOWL and the ministry to accept or reject. The ministry is trying to get funding out as fast as they can, and receiving submissions later will slow the process
