Information for Potential Providers of Private Career Training

Under the Private Vocational Training Act, the Government of Alberta licenses career training programs offered by private institutions. Before a career training program can be offered by a private institution, it must be licensed under this Act. It is a violation of the Act to deliver career training that requires licensing without a license.

Some training is exempt from licensing under the Act. For more information, please see the Exemptions Document.

If you are uncertain as to whether the training you intend to offer requires licensing, please contact us to discuss further.  

If you anticipate your students will need access to student financial assistance, then your programs will need to be designated.
