What Riverside College Offers:
Students who enroll at Riverside College in a career program are:
provided a combination of career specific training and industry experience through work practicums specific to their career of choice.
where applicable, receive dual credit for their coursework. That is, courses that are successfully completed count towards their B.C. Dogwood Secondary School graduation or towards their Adult Graduation. For school credits, courses must be passed with a minimum of 50% however for Career Training credits, an average of 70 % must be maintained in all career related coursework.
in most instances the majority of the cost of the training is borne by the Ministry of Education so the students avoid the costs associated with post-secondary training institutions. Adult students who have graduated from secondary school may also find the costs more manageable as Riverside College is an operation of the Mission School District public school system.
