Part-time ECE Certificate Courses

Battlefords Campus
Oct 23rd, 2017 - May 8th, 2018 Part-time

Application Fee of $35.00

Take up to 13 modules towards your ECE Level Two certificate

You can pick and choose the modules you want to take. You do not have to meet admission requirements if you take one of these four courses: ECE 142; ECE 106; HUMD 183; or EMPL 180.  The first three you will get your ECE Level one.

If you want to take additional modules and work towards your ECE Certificate (Level 2), then you need to be admitted into the program and either provide your high school transcript, GED or write the Accuplacer exam to get into the program.

These modules are offered in the daytime. Pick and choose the modules you want to take. If you take all of them you will just need COMM 291 and the clinicals to complete your certificate. If you are working in a daycare you may be able to "PLAR" the clinicals by having the experience in a work setting.

By taking select modules you can still work while getting credits towards your certificate. Next year you can finish your remaining modules at North West College or take them online from Saskatchewan Polytechnic.
