Our Educational Advisors are part of our admissions team. They are trained to help guide students through the application process with their extensive knowledge about our admission requirements as well as the details of all of our programs. They can help answer your questions about applying to a program, what the costs are, and whether you should pick 1 diploma program over another.

We are a private institution, so we are not funded by the government. We still follow government requirements and guidelines, like PTIB and BC EQA, to ensure we are providing the highest quality education to our students.

Our tuition and fees can be found here. Tuition and fees vary depending on course duration, program type, and certification accreditation.

Our 2-year diplomas are shorter than a 4-year degree program. They are like standard diplomas from other colleges, where you have a large portion of in-class instruction and training, and may include a practicum or co-op work experience component. They are meant to help students learn skills to get hired into their chosen industry and gain experience before deciding whether getting a degree is the right option to help further their career.
