What is the Co-Op portion of my program?
Our programs are eligible for a co-op extension.
What this means is that upon the student’s request, it is possible to add a co-op module to the program of their choice.
The duration of the co-op module is different for every program but the general rule is that by adding it, the program becomes a one-year diploma program.
The co-op module is a period, after the academic lessons, during which the student has to work in a Canadian company in which the recently acquired knowledge can be put in practice.
During the academic period the students are coached by our instructors and communications advisor to prepare their resumes and be ready for a job interview.
The most important deal..
The students have to look for their own jobs and that gives them the chance to experience the way Canadian companies interview for jobs.
