Many smart choices!

AVS – Attestation of Vocational Specialization

AVS is the second training level. This is specialty training that’s more focused and more refined to enable students to deepen their knowledge in a given trade. DVS is a prerequisite to register for AVS, which lasts 4 to 8 months, depending on the program. On the territory of Montreal, 15 AVS programs are offered in French and 8 in English.

 

STC – Skills Training Certificate

STC is a recognition of studies in order to complete one of the 32 training programs offered by school boards in Quebec. A program of study leading to an STC can impart the best skills for practicing a profession in the future, whether in the food sector, general administration, arts, construction or health care. The number of STC programs within the territory of Montreal varies during each school year. You must contact the school board of your choice for the list of programs and their durations.

PTT – Part-Time Training

WSP – Work-Study Program

WSP professional training incorporates a structured method of training periods in school and training periods in the workplace, all connected to a study program leading to graduation.

 

Several school boards on the island of Montreal offer programs leading to a DVS through a work-study program (WSP). For more information, visit http://www.inforoutefpt.org/ATE.

 

SSD-DVS Courses (concurrently)

The vocational training educational program allows school boards to offer concurrent training. This special provision allows students to begin vocational training while pursuing their GED. In other words, you can start your professional program at the same time you continue the study of certain general education subjects normally required as prerequisites for a program leading to a DVS.

 

This path is offered to youths and adults. To register, a student must have passed the core subjects of Secondary 3 (language of instruction, second language and mathematics).

 

To obtain a DVS, students must pass general education courses (language of instruction, second language and mathematics in Secondary 4) enabling them to achieve admission prerequisites for their chosen programs.

 

Currently, four school boards offer concurrent programs:

For more information about the programs offered each year and their specific admission requirements, please contact one of these boards.

 

DVS-DCS Courses

Some “bridges” created between vocational training and college technical programs allow students to obtain a DCS (Diploma of Collegial Studies) faster than via the traditional path.
