Equity is please to announce that PD funding is available to stage managers who are full members of Equity and who wish to take a first aid or CPR training class from a recognized training provider.

Members must be registered in the stage management discipline and must be in good standing to qualify for a tuition rebate. 

A member's rebate is capped at $40 towards tuition costs. In order to receive a reimbursement, members must remit an original receipt for a first aid or CPR class, along with up-to-date contact information and a current email address. Please photocopy your receipt for your own records. 

First aid or CPR training classes must be supplied by a recognized training provider (see provider list below). 

Receipts should be mailed to:
Canadian Actors' Equity Association
Communications Department
44 Victoria Street, 12th floor
Toronto, ON  M5C 3C4

Please mark "First Aid / CPR rebate" on the outside of your envelope. Rebates may take up to three weeks to process and will be sent by cheque to the member.

Tuition fees are subsidized as part of the Association's professional development funding mandate to support high-quality professional development opportunities for Equity members. Support for this subsidy was an initiative of Equity's Stage Management CPAG (http://www.caea.com/EquityWeb/Regions/Stagemanagement.aspx).
