Start anytime and work on courses anytime, at your own pace.  All courses are free and customizable. 

Adults (over 19) who didn’t finish high school or who have been out of high school for a while and need to refresh or gain the prerequisites to enter a college certificate or diploma program, will find the support they need.  Students can also work towards their Academic and Career Entrance (ACE) Certificate, a Grade 12 equivalent for entrance to post-secondary, apprenticeship registration and employment.  Students can gain new skills or refresh their skills before looking for work or entering an apprenticeship.  In all cases, participants expand their options for work and education.

Students can access a variety of subjects including math, computers, communications, and sciences.  Students are supported in making decisions and setting goals and developing an individual training plan, with the help of a Student Advisor.  Individual student questions are answered by instructors. Upgrading clears the path to admission to a post-secondary program, an apprenticeship or employment.
