  • May 2021 graduates: remember that you must have completed the program by the end of January 2021 in order to earn the LBC certificate.
  • If you have submitted a report, check and see if you have been asked to supply more information.  If you find that you have received “0” points on a report, click on your score and you will see what questions you have been asked to answer.  Resubmit your report with the required information so that your LBC points can be updated.
