Vocational Training (FP)

Ensuring that there are enough skilled workers to meet labour needs is a major challenge facing every modern society. Constant labour market fluctuations mean that workers need to be not only highly skilled but also adaptable and innovative. Vocational and technical training (VTT) has a decisive role to play in this regard since it enables students to acquire the occupational competencies demanded by the labour market, as well as the personal skills and attitudes that will allow them to adapt to change and to acquire new competencies.

The InforouteFPT.org website is a collection of all pertinent information on Vocational Training in Quebec.

Vocational training is part of the secondary school education system and is available to both youth and adults. Students can enrol in vocational training after having successfully completed Secondary III or Secondary IV (9 or 10 years of schooling). Vocational training programs of study lead directly to the job market, with students receiving one of the following official diplomas:

Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS)

This first level offers a complete professional training of a particular field of study which allows the student who finishes to enter immediately the job market. The duration of a DVS varies between 6 to 18 months, depending on the programme. Students with a DVS may also continue their studies in an programme leading to an Attestation of Vocational Speciality (AVS).

Attestation of Vocational Speciality (AVS)

Generally shorter than the DVS, i.e. around 3 to 8 months, this second level of training opens the door to a specialty that allows students to deepen their knowledge in a given trade and respond to specific labor market requirements.

Skills Training Certificate (STC)

A program of studies leading to the AEP is a qualifying training short-term, developed, offered and sanctioned by a school services. Such a study program leads to the exercise of a job or profession and is mainly intended for adults. Its duration generally varies from 240 to 720 hours.
