You are eligible for admission at the Kelowna campus if you have a secondary school diploma or equivalent, or are 19 years of age or older and are a Canadian Citizen, landed immigrant, or an international student with a valid Student Visa.
Our team of Program Advisors exists with the sole purpose of helping guide students in identifying their personal, academic, and professional goals. They are knowledgeable about the industries we train for and will help you make an informed decision before you enroll. Program Advisors can not only answer specific questions about our programs and courses, but are also available for in-person, telephone, or email consultation as well as booking school tours or a class audit.
Program Start Dates
There are four starts within the calendar year: January, April, July, and October. Many of our programs have multiple starts, however, not all campuses offer all four starts and not all programs are offered during each start. For the most up-to-date information, contact a Program Advisor.
Although the Centre encourages applicants to submit applications a minimum of six weeks prior to program commencement, with permission, late applications may still be allowed. All applications received less than six weeks prior to the program start require the tuition deposit be paid in full as well as all other admissions requirements to be completed at the time of the application.
Full-Time or Self-Paced Studies
You’ve researched every aspect of your chosen program and industry, you’ve been in touch with a Program Advisor, you’ve visited the campus and seen all there is to see…now you are ready to apply.

Many credit courses listed within full-time diploma and certificate programs are also available on a part-time basis. Part-time students are enrolled on a first-come, first-served basis and may not be available at all campuses. All seats are subject to availability and are prioritized after full-time diploma and certificate students.
To inquire about or apply for Part-time studies, visit our Part-Time Studies section.
Students who meet our admissions requirements are notified by mail within several weeks of the school receiving completed application packages. Upon acceptance into a diploma or certificate program, a deposit towards tuition is required to complete the registration process. The deposit is applied against tuition and treated in accordance with the Private Training Institutions Branch.
Applicants who have not met the requirements for admission will be contacted by the Admissions Office at the Centre. Official application status will not be given over the telephone. Application status can fall under any of the three following headings:
- ACCEPTED: A seat is reserved for the applicant pending payment of seat reservation deposit and completion of the registration procedure.
- CONDITIONALLY ACCEPTED: A seat is reserved for the applicant pending receipt of specified requirements.
- NOT ACCEPTED: The applicant has not met the admission requirements or information requested has not been received.
