We believe your life’s work is education. By considering the cumulative knowledge of training and experience, we create a personalized education pathway for you or your organization.
The APPL MethodThe BCIT SITE Centre uses the Advanced Placement & Prior Learning (APPL) method to create personalized education pathways.
APPL - Advanced Placement & Prior Learning is an innovative approach to translating experience into BCIT credits. The APPL method relies on traditional course-by-course equivalency of the Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR) as well as assessing for direct placement into an upper level of a BCIT business program. This model builds on the assumption that “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts“.
APPL evaluates an individual’s combined:
- Workplace training
- Experience (employment, volunteer work, etc.)
- Previous education
