All programs offer work which provides students with work experience and can lead to employment opportunities. All programs are tailored to focus on employment after graduation.
Programs are between 16 to 18 months long, and students may be eligible for funding through Employee Quebec or loans and bursaries.
Programs have partnerships with local employers, including the federal government, health care institutions, automobile mechanics and welding businesses.
Students hoping to find employment with the government may also participate in the Federal Student Work Experience Program (FSWEP) through their Secretarial Studies and Accounting programs.
Students graduate with a Diploma of vocational studies (DVS) from the Ministry of Education.
With expert teachers, caring staff, supportive student services, and partnerships with local employers, the WQCC is an appealing option for anyone looking to change careers or get vocational training to achieve their career goals.
