In the meantime, please refer to the information below for more details about registration.

Registration

  3. Submit the documents listed below to CEC and your assigned coach at least 3 working days in advance to secure your consultation.
    • The video, slides or outline of the presentation. These videos, slides or outline should be complete.
    • The assignment/presentation instructions

Please note:

  • The communication coach will go over the emailed presentation with you during the session.
