Responding to requests from government ministries, community agencies, and private sector organizations, we develop face-to-face and online courses, programs and simulations in a wide variety of content areas. From initial needs assessment to post-program debriefing, we work closely with clients to ensure educational content, materials and delivery meet desired outcomes and reflect the reality of learners’ contexts. Our educational services are intended to blend into our clients’ overall educational approach and align with existing programs.


Our award-winning Praxis (computer assisted) simulations provide students with an immersive, interactive first-person perspective of an unfolding scenario or event. Critical thinking is required, as learners apply theories and lessons learned while encountering challenging decision points. Learners gain valuable insight and understanding as they experience the outcomes and consequences of their decisions. The experience and knowledge gained can be transferred to inform better decision making in the future.

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue Partners with JIBC

Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue

Since 2013, Royal Canadian Marine Search and Rescue (RCM-SAR) has partnered with JIBC to offer courses for its volunteers who handle about 800 marine emergencies each year along B.C.’s coast.

The volunteer organization is a key part of the marine search and rescue system in the province. It operates more than 40 marine rescue stations in one of the most challenging search and rescue regions in the world.

RCM-SAR turned to JIBC because of the Institute’s reputation for providing effective and relevant courses. “The training team at JIBC are excellent to work with,” said Cheryl Caldwell, RCMSAR’s Director of Training and Operations. “The courses are current and the instructors are knowledgeable and professional.

“These courses have been an excellent opportunity to further the level of training at our stations,” said Caldwell, they have helped to provide standardized operating procedures and a consistent response to incidents.”

The organization has also increased its support of critical incident stress management among members by offering JIBC’s Introduction to Critical Incident Stress Management, which is one of the core courses in JIBC’s CISM. Through the course, members learn about the factors and vulnerabilities they may experience that can contribute to a heightened response to a critical incident.

“RCM-SAR recognizes the tremendous benefit of critical incident stress management for members who have taken part in particularly demanding or stressful missions,” said Caldwell. “I’m pleased that RCM-SAR is partnering with JIBC to provide an opportunity for members to take their critical incident stress management certification to the next level and increase critical incident stress support to members at our search and rescue stations.”
