Entrance Requirements

Prerequisites: COMP 1002 or equivalent knowledge of file management using an MS Windows based PC.

  • Students are expected to have English and Math skills at a BC high school Grade 12 level or equivalent.
  • Participants will be required to make written and verbal presentations, plus be able to work in groups.
  • We recommend some other post-secondary education or work experience in either business or computing.

Each course in this program also has prerequisites, be sure that you have the required knowledge and skills before enrolling.

AWD was not designed to be completed in a full-time delivery, as each course has prerequisites and Flexible Learning/PTS scheduling varies from term to term.

Some students capable of a heavy course load over days, nights and weekends may be able to fast-track AWD over 3 terms or 1 year, depending on the electives chosen.

Most Flexible Learning students are working, and complete AWD with 1 or 2 courses per term.

Please contact the department for course planning details.
