The Torch: Opportunities

Canadian Defence Academy


(Does not work on DWAN) 


This section is designed to assist members with finding free or inexpensive learning opportunities for their continuous / lifelong learning.  It also outlines some education and training opportunities for members transitioning from the CAF as well as some Executive Education programs for senior leaders. Finally, it also provides a link to information concerning the new CAF Self-Development Program (CAFSDP) which provides military members with financial assistance for education upgrading, professional development, and preparation for career transition. 


But, we start first with some inhouse DND / CAF opportunities:

Learning is not on hold! Renewed focus on virtual training delivery and advice for Defence Team members.


Note: The CAF does not specifically endorse any of these sites and it is NOT responsible for any funding required for any of them. While several of the links provided in the 'Online Courses' section below offer 'free' learning opportunities, there might be some additional costs. That said, this does not stop members from applying and potentially being reimbursed through other means such as the Education Reimburement  (ER) program.
