Who can use the EFAP online course library?
All UBC staff, faculty, and their eligible dependents who are enrolled in UBC’s medical plan, and their families, can access the e-Course library. It is also available to UBC retirees and survivors at their own cost, if elected at the time of enrollment in the RSB. To determine if you are enrolled in EFAP, log in through the UBC Staff and Faculty Self-Service portal.
Accessing the EFAP e-Course library
Accessing the e-Courses is easy. As a UBC employee eligible to participate in UBC’s medical plan you are likely already signed up for this benefit upon commencement of your employment. All you need to do is click here, enter University of British Columbia as your employer, register some basic details – and you will automatically gain access to the members-only, extremely in-depth e-Course Library.
The information you share with UBC’s EFAP provider is confidential, and will not be shared with UBC. The University is not told the identity of those using EFAP services, including online services.
