Eleven different English-language programs are offered in our 4 vocational training centres across Western Québec. These programs can lead to a Quebec Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS or DEP), sometimes in as little as a year.
Teaching staff in our vocational training centres bring a wealth of expertise and experience from the field to their classrooms, labs and workshops which are invaluable and inspirational to our students. Graduates enter hospitals or care facilities, dealerships, government offices, or businesses as skilled, qualified and competent individuals, who are equipped with the expertise to further advance themselves in their career of choice.
The Charter of French Language, or Law 101, does not apply to our Adult Education or Vocational Training programs. These English-language courses and programs are open to everyone, regardless of their parents’ mother tongue.
