Your post-secondary institution will work with you to ensure your higher education credentials are assessed. Although most institutions use the International Qualifications Assessment Service (IQAS), which compares educational qualifications from other countries to Alberta educational standards, always confirm your institution's process with them before you get started.
Trade & Occupation Credentials
In Alberta, several trades and occupations are regulated and require specific credentials.
Your experience could get you post-secondary credit. Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) identifies, assesses and recognizes your skills and knowledge by comparing it to your program of study’s learning outcomes. You may receive credit that helps you complete your program more quickly.
