Making courses available for institution and non-institution users

I work at a K-12 School District.  All of our professional staff have CANVAS accounts generated via our SIS, but other users do not have accounts (e.g., charter school employees, para-professionals, janitors, lunch ladies, etc.). With state testing coming up, our district test coordinator created a CANVAS course to supplement training and house resources.  This is great and easy to manage for our professional staff, but has challenges for our charter schools and para-professionals.  What is the easiest and most efficient method to have non-CANVAS users access a course in a secure instance (e.g., https://myinstance.instructure.com vs. http://canvas.instructure)?  I know how to generate a link and generate a self-enrollment code for a course, but this does not seem helpful if a user doesn't have an account.  Thoughts?
