Accredited Post-Secondary Programs - ABT

Accreditation Assessment for Post-Secondary Institutions in British Columbia - ABT

The following programs have been assessed by the College.  Students graduating from these programs will meet the academic standards for entry into the College as a Trainee(ABT) or Applied Biology Technician and do not need to submit course descriptions.  This initiative was made possible through a grant with the Ministry of Jobs, Tourism and Skills Training.

The years that these programs were officially accredited are in brackets in the Accreditation Decision column (i.e. Accredited (2014)). Applicants that graduated these programs prior to these years must include course descriptions with their applications.
