Part-time StudiesDo you need flexibility? Our part-time courses are offered at night or on weekends, or by distance or online learning. You can take one course at a time, or work towards a diploma, certificate or degree.
If you meet the prerequisites and there’s space available, you can simply register for a course immediately. No applications are necessary.
Dual Credit Programs
Do you want a head start on your studies? Our dual credit programs allow you to take BCIT programs while you’re still in high school. When you complete the program, you receive a BCIT credential as well as credits both towards your high-school diploma and for apprenticeship training.
Talk to your high-school career transition coordinator or counselor for more information about dual credit opportunities in your school district.
