The Town of Drayton Valley is excited to introduce a Zero Fee Tuition pilot program at the Clean Energy Technology Centre (CETC) in Drayton Valley beginning in September 2019.
Offered through the Town of Drayton Valley, the Zero Fee Tuition concept aims to increase post-secondary opportunities for students and provide options for extended studies for mature students and those looking to upgrade or considering a new career path.
This opportunity is open to all Canadians (permanent residents or citizens), however, preference will be given to local students and those in the surrounding region.
GOALS OF THE ZERO FEE INITIATIVE
• Create hope and opportunities to residents
• Grow and diversify the local economy
• Increase local, provincial and national student enrollment
There will be 3 programming streams available for students.
The first stream, Arts & Science Certificate Program, creates a pathway for students who plan to continue to further post-secondary study.
The Health Care Aide program provides students with a pathway to the work place.
Power Engineering Prep provides an opportunity to upgrade Mathematics and Physics grades to meet the pre-requisites for Level 4 Power Engineering.
