Benefits of Membership

Each member of the AACC automatically becomes a member of the affiliate national body, the National Association of Career Colleges (NACC).

The AACC provides a cohesive voice to advocate on behalf of its members for issues that are of common concern.

The AACC aims to increase public and industry awareness of the quality of private colleges and their programs.

Association meetings provide forums to invite speakers of interest, either from government or other sectors, so that issues common to all members can be discussed.

Membership in the Association provides an opportunity to work in cooperation with other private providers in the province.

Message From The Chair


Every year, more and more Albertans see our province’s Career Colleges as the right pathway to the profession of their choice.  Career Colleges are seen as a smart alternative for vocational training with their ability to adapt more quickly to the market place, offer more attention to their students with smaller classes and train on relevant skills in a shorter time frame. 
Alberta’s Career Colleges offer licensed certificate and diploma programs in many areas not limited to: Aviation/Aviation Technical Services, Healthcare, Computerized Office Procedures, Drafting, Legal, Hospitality, Massage, Esthetics, Fashion and Art design. 
Alberta is full of opportunity and prosperity for the technically skilled individual who can match their knowledge and training with employer needs.  Often it is not required to attend a college for multiple years to obtain the appropriate skillset to qualify for these opportunities.   Shorter term, accelerated vocational training may be one of the biggest benefits Career Colleges have to offer Albertans. 
Whatever the field of interest, the most important part of attending a college is graduating and then finding that career in your professional area of expertise.  This is yet another area where our province’s Career Colleges shine, as seen in the statistics below. 
Alberta Enterprise and Advanced Education reported for the 2012-2013 period that the average graduation rate was 81% and the job Placement Rate was 90% for the over 14,000 Albertans who chose a Career College as their pathway to success. 
The achievements of Alberta’s Career Colleges are due in part to the additional attention we give every one of our students who are encouraged by routinely monitored attendance and supportive checks on academic progress. These methods consistently aid students in structuring the successful completion of their studies and training. 
Whether you are just beginning to explore options, or are keen to get started, do not hesitate to directly contact the Career College of your choice for more information.
