Announcing Virtual Classrooms

Thanks to our friends over at Camp Bowen Innovations, we are excited to announce that as of the week of Monday, April 20, 2020, the PTCB will be moving its classes to virtual classrooms. At that point staff will not be calling students but will instead meet them in a virtual classroom.

How to Join

There are three ways to access virtual classrooms: on the web, by landline phone, or by smartphone. We ask students who are able to connect using the website to please do so as it leaves our phone lines open for students who cannot use the classrooms through the website at this time.

To join a virtual classroom, students can go to:

ptcb.ca/classrooms

Or call:

+1 (778) 817-0482 and press option 5 at the main menu

Or tap:

+17788170482,5

When the virtual classrooms are accessed, students will be prompted to enter their student pin. If you are a current PTCB student and don’t yet have your student pin, please reach out to one of the instructors.

Student Pins

It is important that students get their student pin as soon as possible as the pin will be needed for absence reporting, the virtual classrooms, and accessing other PTCB services.
