On Demand seminars may also include technical modules where participants are provided seminar materials as well as a range of online interactive learning activities. Participants can share ideas or pose questions to other participants and an expert seminar facilitator with this format.

In-House Presentations
It may be more practical and/or economical for your organization to offer seminars on an “in-house” basis.

Some advantages of such presentations are:
• Cost effective, flexible and convenient
• Opportunity for frank discussions about how matters will be treated “in-house”
• Team-building through discussion groups

You can arrange for an in-house presentation of most of the seminars offered in the professional
development program. CPA Manitoba supplies a master copy of the seminar materials and you supply the location, instructor, etc. The basic fee for most seminars is $500 plus $140 per participant for a full day session ($75 per participant for a half-day session).

Acquisitions of In-House Rights
The purchase of in-house rights gives you unlimited right to use the seminar material within your
organization, in any format you choose. You will receive one master copy of each of the instructor materials and the participant materials for your use. The cost of acquiring the rights starts at $3,000.
