Once you have completed 150 hours of Business Fundamentals courses, you are eligible for a Business Fundamentals Certificate. If you have included core courses within these hours, you are also eligible for a specialization certificate in that stream.
If you complete the Business Fundamentals Certificate and earn 1 specialization, you can earn a second specialization by taking additional core courses.
Be sure to submit your Request for Certification when you have completed your program. Certificates are not automatically issued.
This program is Blue Seal approved.
The Blue Seal program was established by the Alberta Apprenticeship and Industry Training Board to encourage and recognize business training. If you are a certified Alberta Journeyperson in a designated trade or occupation, earning a Blue Seal proves that you meet Alberta's high industry standards and have the skills to succeed in business.
If you have a valid Alberta Journeyperson, Occupational, Qualification or Proficiency Certificate, you can enhance your current certification with a Blue Seal. You can also earn a Blue Seal if you have the equivalent to an Alberta trade or occupational certificate.
How to Apply: Submit a completed Blue Seal application, proof of completion (such as official transcripts) and the non-refundable $50 fee to any Apprenticeship and Industry Training (AIT) office. Applications can be found on the Tradesecrets website.
