The most important skill we provide to our students is the ability to function under urgency and pressure, to step-up and meet deadlines.


Skill alone is not enough, pride in ones work and a "can-do" attitude are the traits employers look for.


We have in the past and continue to receive overwhelming support from the Calgary business community.
