What is the purpose of an Attestation of College Studies (ACS)?
An ACS is an attestation of college studies that is granted following the successful completion of a credited training program made up of courses specifically related to the requirements and tasks associated with a work function. These are short technical training programs developed by CEGEPs in consultation with labour market partners to ensure that your training will perfectly meet the needs of your current or future employer. In 2021, 86% of employed ACS graduates were in full-time positions, and 74% of these same individuals held positions related to their training.
How do I register for a continuing education program?
