The Premier Benefits Education Program. 

Online, Anytime.

Gain a practical working knowledge of the benefits field delivered by industry experts. 

Register for 12 months access to this comprehensive online program and earn CE credits in one of three ways: BPHA Basics (5 sessions), BPHA Advanced (5 sessions), or the full BPHA program in 10 sessions. Earn up to 35 CE credits (in most provinces) when you complete the full program and earn your BPHA designation. Renew your membership after 12 months for ongoing access, plus new content and additional CE credits.

All registration fees include access to live BPHA at Lunch sessions, our member Resource Library, and Ask the Expert Q&A.

“This program, designed by an advisory board of seasoned professionals, is unlike any other benefits education program in Canada today. Not only will you develop a practical working knowledge of group benefits, you will learn about the challenges, complexities and trends in our industry. After you receive your BPHA certificate you will have access to regular updates and ongoing education sessions.

Join the growing list of benefits and private healthcare professionals earning their BPHA.”
