Please Note: CFNHMP Course Refresh (Names and Descriptions)

Over the coming weeks, we will be working to refresh the Certified First Nations Health Manager Program course titles and descriptions. Until this work is complete, please continue to register for courses 100, 200, 300 and 400 under the existing names.

We have included both the current and refreshed names and descriptions below, for your information.

Thank you for your patience as we complete this important and exciting work!

 

Spring Semester

We are now accepting registration for Course 500: The Professional First Nation Health Manager!

Course length: 8 weeks
Winter semester: May 4, 2022 – June 22, 2022

Course cost: $1800 members, $2250 non-members (+applicable taxes)

 

Due to Covid-19, we are unable to offer intensive courses anymore for the foreseeable future. We are pleased to share that we will be replacing the previous intensive and online courses with a new and exciting hybrid course that combines real time interactive sessions with your group and the ability to work online – all without travelling or taking time off work.

This new course will continue to include the high quality content that our students appreciate in an all-new user-friendly online format. Each  course will incorporate an orientation session, online postings, group chats, weekly real time discussion activities led by an experienced instructor, TA sessions, and ongoing guidance from your instructor.

This improved format offers you the chance to “meet” your instructor and course mates weekly and discuss scenarios and situations collectively and in real time. It also gives you flexibility to work on your online postings on your own time. No travel time or travel expenses and no time off work required!

FNHMA is excited to be living its values of continuous improvement and looks forward to welcoming you into our new hybrid courses!

The FNHMA offers an educational program leading to the Certified First Nations Health Manager (CFNHM) professional designation.

The professional designation is based on five courses in the Certified First Nations Health Manager Program (CFNHMP). The courses are based on building and supporting key competencies; information about each of the courses can be found below.

This program is for you if you are working in First Nations health management or aspire to a career in this area.

Many employers will encourage their employees to enroll in the Certified First Nations Health Managers Program and will assist with the cost of course tuition and annual FNHMA membership dues. Additionally, inquiries related to educational assistance can be made to Indigenous Services Canada and a number of other federal and provincial departments and agencies that promote and support educational activities.
