Professional Organizers in Canada is the premier source of education when beginning or developing your organizing business. We offer a comprehensive mix of both recorded courses, along with live Zoom classes, and cover a wide range of business development and organizing topics. These informative and dynamic classes have been developed by industry experts and are taught by experienced POC members. While these courses are an excellent educational tool when taken individually, they are designed to be taken together as part of the Trained Professional Organizer Program.
