Professional Development

Corporate and International Training offers a wide variety of informative seminars and workshops.


Canada Job Grant

Canadian businesses can get up to 65% of employee training costs covered through the Canada Job Grant. The grant is available to businesses in all sectors.

All courses or programs developed and/or delivered through Corporate and International Training, Productivity Enhancement Services and/or Industry Solutions are classified as non-credit and do not lead to degrees, diplomas or certificates that have been previously approved by the ministry responsible for post-secondary education in the Province of Alberta nor can they be used to obtain advance credit into ministry approved programs. This in no way impacts the quality of the programming being offered and provides the flexibility to immediately meet the demands of industry and, as a result, our students.
