Admission Requirements

General

VCC welcomes applications from Canadian citizens and permanent residents.

As Vancouver Community College is a post-secondary institution committed to educating adult learners, applicants should be 18 years of age or older or a graduate of a secondary school.

Please note that you must submit official transcripts and educational documents to support your application; unfortunately, we cannot accept photocopies or fax versions.


Program Specific

Missing prerequisites? VCC offers courses in Adult Upgrading and English as an Additional Language to help you meet your goals.

Students must be registered with the Industry Training Authority (ITA) as an Apprentice and have received an ITA Identification number.

To determine whether you qualify for apprenticeship training consult the Industry Training Authority.

New apprentices who have successfully completed an ITA approved training program can apply to the Industry Training Centre for credit towards the work-based and technical training requirements of their apprenticeship. Often, successful completion of a trades program or pre-apprentice program significantly reduces the work-based and/or training hours required for the trade.
