Since many adults will return to the classroom at various stages in their lives, educators can benefit from specialized training that helps adults refresh their skills or change careers. The Adult Education program is designed to give educators the tools and skills to help adults realize their goals. Learning is a life-long endeavour, and the program is suited to those interested in enhancing their skills as:
Industrial and business training specialists and consultants
Students must take 30 credits, including five core courses (15 credits: ADED 201, ADED 202, ADED 220, ADED 496 and ADED 497) and 15 credits chosen from Adult Education (ADED) offerings and 3 credits chosen as an elective from cognate courses with the permission of the Programme Director.
All credits earned in the Certificate Programme may be transferred into an appropriate Bachelor's/Baccalaureate degree.
United States students: A U.S. Federal Student Aid-eligible version of this program is offered. This version meets all U.S. regulations (such as no co-operative education or e-courses) for eligible programs.
Minimum cut-off averages should be used as indicators. The cut-off data may change depending on the applicant pool. Applicants who meet the stated minimum requirements are not guaranteed admission to these programs.
