Continuing Studies contract training

Continuing Studies works with industry, businesses, community organizations and government agencies to offer contract training for delivery at our campus. Contract training is often more affordable, particularly if you have 8-12 people who need the same course. Some courses can be customized to meet your specific needs. WorkSafeBC Occupational First Aid Level 1 and Transportation Endorsement can be offered together on the days convenient to your company. In response to special requests we can provide:

  • Flexible and cost-effective training
  • Training by knowledgeable and experienced instructors
  • Training schedules to suit you and your employees/clients

Call one of the Community Coordinators to obtain contract rates and more information.
