Workers Compensation Board of Prince Edward Island

Online certificate courses and resources in multiple languages now available

May 24, 2024

The Workers Compensation Board (WCB) is pleased to announce it is offering free online certificate courses that cover a variety of compensation and occupational health and safety topics. Courses are available now, to anyone, at the click of a button on the WCB website.


“As part of our 2024-2026 strategic plan, we have identified the need to adapt our outreach and communications to the growing diversity in our workforce,” said Dan Campbell, CEO of the WCB. “By providing these courses free of charge to Island workers and employers, our goal is to empower each and every one of them with knowledge and understanding of topics that affect them in the workplace, both individually and collectively.”


Five courses are currently online, with a plan to add more as they become available. All courses are tailored to PEI workplaces as the content is built on existing PEI legislation. Learning is self-paced and when a participant finishes a course, they receive a completion certificate from the WCB. Courses can be taken as standalone learning opportunities, or they can be integrated into a worker’s safety orientation or a workplace safety program. The course catalog is available by going to the WCB website and clicking the “FREE Online Courses” button.


In addition, the WCB has an updated series of resources now available in multiple languages to enhance the health and safety of workers and employers on the Island. These resources include safety responsibility related posters, a fact sheet about what is workers compensation coverage and a fact sheet about what to do if a work-related injury or illness happens. These resources are offered in English, French, Chinese simplified, Punjabi, Filipino and Spanish, and can be downloaded from the WCB website by clicking the “Resources in Various Languages” button.
