Leadership and Project Management Training

IEEE Canada offers two courses that can be presented in your local area or at our annual conference (CCECE/CCGEI). The volunteer trainers donate their time, but Sections are expected to cover any costs involved.

These courses can be given to Section, Chapter, or Student Branch volunteers, or offered as professional development programs to IEEE members.
