WELLINGTON – As of September 2018, Collège de l’Île will offer a variety of online courses in different program areas.
These courses are offered to the public and the only admission requirement is to have a high school diploma or its equivalent.
“Our mission is to offer learning and development opportunities which contribute to the success and well-being of individuals and communities,” said Collège de l’Île president, Donald DesRoches.
“Choosing to take courses for personal interest, for professional development or within a part-time program is an investment in one’s future.”
Fourteen courses are offered online in the fall including business, early childhood and social services. Courses are held Monday to Friday, at various times during the day and in the evening. The cost ranges from $210 to $420 per course, depending on the number of course hours.
Furthermore, the college recently upgraded its videoconferencing system which enables students to study from anywhere, on their preferred device: smartphone, tablet or computer. All that is required is an internet connection.
“The ability to acquire and put new skills into practice is essential in today’s workforce,” added DesRoches.
“Continuous learning is a considerable advantage for employers and employees alike.”
The current list of courses and the registration forms are available on the college website . (www.collegedelile.ca) under the Part-Time Training menu.
Collège de l’Île is Prince Edward Island’s French language post-secondary institution. It offers nine college-level programs, custom training for businesses and organizations, as well as language training in French and English.
