Our classroom based courses are offered during three semesters in the calendar year (January – April, April – June/August, and September – December). The format of these courses typically calls for you to attend class one night a week, for three to four hours over 12 to 15 weeks. We also offer weekend courses and accelerated courses that call you to attend class two or more times a week over a three to nine week period.
Our online-based courses also follow the semester system (with a set starting and ending date) and allows you to study in a virtual classroom over the Web. This environment enables you to interact with other students as well as the instructor.
Our correspondence courses can be studied at anytime throughout the year as you have 30 weeks from the time of registration to complete the program requirements. During your period of study you also have access to an instructor to help assist you.
Each course offering has limited seating and we recommended that as soon as you decide on the specific course offering that you would like to attend that you register for your space as soon as possible as seats are offered on a first come, first served basis.
Not only do our courses offer flexibility, industry and professional designation recognition, they offer you a path to build upon your education from starting with a Management Certificate (Finance or Professional Accounting), moving on to your Senior Certificate, then to your Diploma and ultimately right up to our Bachelor of Technology in Accounting or Bachelor of Business Administration.
