Canadian Vocational Training Centre

Our Mission Statement at the Canadian Vocational Training Centre is Educate, Empower, Employ, thereby enabling our students to achieve their personal, educational and career goals in a timely and cost effective manner.

The Canadian Vocational Training Centre is a designated private training institution operating primarily in the province of British Columbia. We have been open since 2013 and we know that college isn’t for everyone, but education is! We also know that employers hire people, not certifications. Therefore, our focus is on training students in creating employer-employee fit by focusing on skills such as communication, teamwork, leadership and other skills which help an employee to fit into a company culture.

EDUCATE

Your education is important! You’re never too old to learn. In fact, adult learners are generally the best learners around. Why? Because adults are highly motivated, very curious, and know how to apply their practical life experiences to new information. At Canadian Vocational Training Centre we want to help educate you with skills needed for today’s workforce.

EMPOWER

The term empowerment refers to the act of “investing with power“, allowing people to take back control of their own future. At Canadian Vocational Training Centre we are known as career development professionals: we advise, coach, and provide information to people who are planning, seeking and managing their own career direction. Don’t let life control you! Control your life, and your future, at CVTC.

EMPLOY

This is what its all about! Employers tell us that selecting the right person for the job has never been more important that it is today. With local employers communicating their workforce needs directly to CVTC, we are able to ensure that our students are prepared for today’s jobs. At Canadian Vocational Training Centre we are passionate about our students success and this is what it’s all about!
