Academic Recognition and Certification

The Competency Management and Development System is recognized by several post secondary institutions. Academic credentials are being granted based on the validated competencies using prior learning assessment methodologies and criteria.

Lakeland College is recognized across Western Canada as an innovator in education and training and an important provider of training to the petroleum industry. Lakeland College has accepted the system as a valid measurement of competency and training and grants credit towards several technical certificate programs.
