The Provincial Instructor Diploma (PIDP) provides the instructional skills to teach adults in private and public post-secondary institutions in BC. The PIDP consists of eight core courses and 7 electives for a total of 30 credits. Vancouver Community College (VCC) School of Instructor Education (SIE) offers these courses.
