Announcing "Elevate", NOSM’s New Automated Registration System!

In 2011 CEPD instituted a registration gateway called Instant Enrollment. The system allowed registrants to self-register for courses, however it has had its limitations with respect to new users and payment and we’ve heard your feedback!

The new ‘Elevate’ registration system will allow you to truly self-register, select all options related to a particular educational activity and complete payment with no follow up required – a seamless experience in one transaction. You will receive an email confirming your login details and an additional email confirming your registration.

We hope that you will be pleased with your experience and welcome your feedback! 

After reading the instructions below, please scroll down to select the course you would like to register for and initiate your registration.

Please read the following in order to optimise your registration experience:

For your first registration:


  • We encourage you to set-up the same username and password that you have created for other NOSM access, for your own ease and consistency.

Please review the terms and conditions when prompted.

You will be asked for your date of birth. (We understand and respect that this information is highly confidential and it will only be using it as a unique identifier for your personal records.  This will ensure that your NOSM transcripts and financial records are recorded accurately.  Date of Birth is protected information under FIPPA Privacy Legislation and NOSM will adhere to these standards.)

If you are registering for a conference, there may be core components pre-selected for you with other optional events that you will need to select. Please ensure that you read each page fully.

If payment is required for the educational activity, you will be forwarded to the secure TouchNet payment system where you can enter your credit card information. Note that if payment is required, your registration will not be complete until the payment is made.

**Please be advised that Upcoming CEPD Activities are as current as possible**
