During the Interactive Sessions, Candidates discuss problems and cases both in small groups and in the large group, with presentations to the full group. Candidates are expected to be able to discuss the issues, share their views and insights and provide relevance to the topics through personal experience in their individual organizations. At the start of Year Two, Moderators will assign Candidates to permanent small groups of 3-6 candidates within the large group to work on the group assignments as well as the Board Report. Each of the Modules requires approximately 75 hours to complete. To develop the
Candidate’s integrative, analytical and report writing skills, a variety of assignments are included. 2. 3 Session Locations & Meals The Interactive Sessions are held in major centers throughout the province. All sessions are held in hotels and learning centers as indicated on the schedules included with the enrolment information for the Program. Locations are subject to change. Confirmations regarding the exact location and time, as well as any pertinent instructions, are posted to the Professional Programs (CUP site) discussion board at least two weeks prior to each Interactive Session.

National marking team for marking and feedback. Other assignments during the Modules consist of on-line discussions, business application reports, preparation for and participation during the Interactive Session, and are evaluated by the Moderators. (See section 3. 13). Assignments that require submission to the CUP site must be uploaded in order to be accounted for and marked. It is strongly recommended that students ensure that their assignment has been successfully uploaded to the CUP site, as CAM Ontario will assume no responsibility for assignment upload errors. Submission of assignments is mandatory in order to remain in the SLP.
Late reports will be subject to assessment reductions. Candidates who submit an assignment substantially after the deadline may be subject to a late marking fee. Candidates who receive an assessment of “Below Expectations” on two reports will be required to perform remedial work including re-submitting the assignment to the Moderator’s in order to remain in the SLP. Candidates experiencing difficulty in completing an assignment may request an extension of the due date. Extensions are only granted in unusual circumstances such as illness or bereavement. Normal employment related obligations (I. , month and year-ends, tax season, special projects) will not be considered. Candidates must submit in writing a request to CAM Notation’s Candidate Support Representatives at least 48 hours before a due date to request an extension. If an extension is warranted, supporting documentation may be required. Permission to submit a report or assignment late affects only that report.
