CAIB Immersion Course

CAIB Immersion Course is a five-day, instructor-led class held in downtown Vancouver.  Classes run from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., Monday to Friday.

Students are expected to read the entire textbook before the immersion course starts to be ready for in-class discussion.

Course Fee:

  • $599 for IBABC members
  • $799 for non-members

For the fee you get:

  • Intensive classroom instruction
  • The textbook (mailed to you before the course starts)
  • Supplementary course materials (resource guide and practice exam with marker's guide­).

If you already have a current textbook and don't need to purchase a new one, we will deduct that cost from your CAIB Immersion Course fee. 

We offer several CAIB Immersion Courses each year. There’s no CAIB 1 Immersion Course.
