What makes us different?
Our programs uniquely prepare students by allocating more instructional hours for the application of concepts that the big schools simply don't have time for. Our small class sizes, individual attention, and additional instructional hours, all contribute to student success and employability post-graduation.
For the 2017-2018 academic year, the Accounting Technician program is offered at the Cold Lake campus only.
