  • What’s the difference between Classroom and Virtual?

    You choose to attend the class face–to–face or face–to–screen. Participants seamlessly interact with each other, take part in the same polls and view the same whiteboard. Same instructor, same instruction. The course is streamed live from IBAO’s classroom, so no matter which format you choose, you’re not missing out.

    For students who select the classroom option, you’ll attend class at IBAO’s office in Toronto. Due to public health advisories, the number of seats is currently limited to 19.

    Virtual is the broadcast of the classroom course via Zoom. Students can stay at home or the office, with no travel time. Through Zoom, you can chat with the instructor and your peers, view class slides and participate in the same group/breakout activities as classroom students do. Note: classes aren’t recorded.

  • What’s the difference between Weekday and Weekend programs?

    Weekday courses are 10 days, Monday to Friday, 9:00AM–4:30PM, for two weeks. It’s 9 days of lessons and exam practices, with day 10 being the exam. Weekend is 6 days over 3 consecutive weekends. There’s no exam on the last day as part of this class. Both options come with the same textbook and workbook (handed out in class or digitally distributed beforehand). These courses can be taken in the Classroom or Virtually.

  • What’s the difference between hardcopy textbook and eBook?

    The hardcopy textbook is the paper textbook. It’s perfect for people who prefer using pen or highlighter on the pages they read. Our eBook is a digital version of the exact same textbook and works in the Kortext App you can view on your tablet, smartphone, eReader or computer. It allows you to make notes, highlight text, change font, font size and paper colour, so you can customize it to exactly how you like to read. You’ll be required to sign up for a free account with Kortext, but the textbook will be yours as long as your account is valid. Download instructions will be emailed to you after you make a purchase.

  • Is the eBook accessible offline?

    If you download the Kortext App, you can view and have full functionality of your eBook offline. If you’re viewing the eBook through a browser, you’ll need to be online.

  • Can I print my eBook?

    No – the eBook is only available digitally.

  • What are my RIBO exam options?

    You have two options: an in person paper–based exam or an online exam. Exams are the same content, written on different platforms. You must select which exam option you prefer when you register for the course.
