How do I decide which career is right for me?
Academy of Learning has introduced several new programs to complement its well established business-oriented diplomas and certificates. These choices give students a wide variety of options for their future career. Students should determine where their aptitudes and capabilities are and then meet with a college representative to discuss alternative program options. Students can then select the field that will satisfy their interests and allow them to achieve their personal goals.
How often do programs start?
Enrolment for any traditional Academy Integrated Learning™ System program is continuous, which means that individual courses start every day. This allows students to begin their studies immediately. Selected specialized programs such as Medical Office Assistant (MOA) and Resident Care Assistant (RCA) do have established start dates due to classroom set-ups for lecturing purposes. Start dates are woven into students' schedules to maximize the efficient use of their time and combine the classroom with the more independent Academy method of instruction.
What are the admission requirements?
Admission requirements include a Grade 12 diploma or equivalent or Mature Student status. In addition, a satisfactory command of the English language and the ability to work with the Integrated Learning™ System are necessary. Additional requirements may also be necessary for certain specialized programs. All applicants must attend an initial interview process and receive a positive recommendation from the College Director. Foreign students who are not Canadian citizens or permanent residents must obtain a Study Permit with their Visitor Visa from Citizenship and Immigration Canada.
I work part time. Are the course hours flexible?
Academy of Learning’s Integrated Learning™ System gives students the freedom to customize their schedules to suit other factors in their lives. Flextime scheduling allows each individual to choose the most convenient times to learn, including weekdays, evenings and Saturdays, subject to workstation availability and college hours of operation. Selected specialized diploma programs do have set hours for a certain portion of the program, which are instructor-led. This means that some course hours are fixed. College representatives can provide you with more information on these programs.
I was employed in dead end jobs for most of my working life, moving up to manager at a fast food restaurant in the last few years. I suddenly realized that without going back to school to upgrade my skills this would be my career for the next 25 years. I needed help fast!
I researched all the school options but loved the Academy of Learning from my very first visit. It just seemed like everyone was pulling for me to succeed from day one. Also, with their flexible class schedule I was able to both work and attend school full time, something no one else could offer.
The best part? I had a job offer TWO MONTHS before I had completed my Computerized Accounting diploma. I now go to work everyday knowing I have a career I can be proud of that will grow with me for years to come.
