Business Analysis

Suzelle Umeobieri / Business Analysis program helped Suzelle embark on a new career path

The instruc­tors were very pro­fes­sion­al, knowl­edge­able, and sup­port­ive. I learned a lot from their com­ments and crit­i­cisms. Inter­act­ing with stu­dents from oth­er provinces all over Cana­da was also great.

Nation­al Advanced Cer­tifi­cate in Local Author­i­ty Admin­is­tra­tion Lev­el II student

All instruc­tors were extreme­ly well versed in their fields. But one of them — a senior lawyer with the Alber­ta Gov­ern­ment who taught a course on OHS law — was incred­i­bly impressive.

Occu­pa­tion­al Health & Safe­ty Certificate student

The office was flex­i­ble and help­ful when I need­ed an accom­mo­da­tion to fast-track the pro­gram. I also liked that we always had plen­ty of time to com­plete assign­ments. The teach­ers were very nice.

Res­i­den­tial Inte­ri­ors Certificate student

I learned a lot about dif­fer­ent tech­niques. Get­ting advice and feed­back from the instruc­tors was very help­ful, and I liked the sense of com­mu­ni­ty I got from inter­act­ing with oth­er stu­dents, see­ing what they were doing, and learn­ing from them.

Visu­al Arts student

I’d rec­om­mend the IAPP pro­gram both to those already in the field and those who want to start an excit­ing career and move up fast.

Information Access and Protection of Privacy Certificate student

I loved the one-on-one instruc­tion and the inter­ac­tion with oth­er stu­dents. Loved watch­ing them learn and per­form in class while I also advanced on my own art.

Visu­al Arts student

I enjoyed being able to net­work and talk to peo­ple who work in a sim­i­lar field to mine.

Con­struc­tion Man­age­ment and Admin­is­tra­tion Certificate student

The instruc­tion is great but, to be hon­est, I also enjoyed learn­ing from oth­er stu­dents. I haven’t worked in the indus­try yet, so hear­ing from class­mates on their chal­lenges or suc­cess­es was cru­cial for me to oper­a­tional­ize what we were learn­ing in a real-world environment.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

I enjoyed the excel­lent instruc­tors, the cama­raderie of my fel­low stu­dents, and how this pushed me to expand my abilities.

Visu­al Arts student

I enjoyed learn­ing new cur­ricu­lum and meet­ing like-mind­ed stu­dents in the same field.

Construction Management & Administration Certificate student

Because the instruc­tors actu­al­ly work in the real world,” they can take their expe­ri­ences and make them relat­able to the course mate­ri­als. That helped me learn immensely.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

Net­work­ing was a plus. I have built rela­tion­ships with my pro­fes­sors and many of my classmates.

Such a great course! What I enjoyed the most was the mas­tery of both sub­ject con­tent, knowl­edge deliv­ery, and moti­va­tion­al leadership.

Applied Geo­sta­tis­tics student

The IAPP pro­gram was flex­i­ble enough to adapt to my work and life sched­ule. It was doable while work­ing full time and being a sin­gle par­ent to two kids.

Infor­ma­tion Access and Pro­tec­tion of Pri­va­cy Certificate student

The pro­gram is extreme­ly well pre­sent­ed and the instruc­tors are great. The inter­ac­tion with oth­er stu­dents also helped me expand my under­stand­ing of OHS in oth­er industries.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

It’s great when you start putting the the­o­ry into prac­tice at work. The knowl­edge you gain allows for bet­ter bud­get rec­om­men­da­tions and decisions.

Local Authority Administration (NACLAA I) Advanced Certificate student

The teach­ers were excel­lent and very helpful.

The cours­es blend­ed with my cur­rent line of work and, at the same time, pro­vid­ed me with new insight into a broad­er range of pri­va­cy topics.

Infor­ma­tion Access and Pro­tec­tion of Pri­va­cy Certificate student

All of the cours­es can be relat­ed to dif­fer­ent tasks that are required in the pro­fes­sion. I would rec­om­mend the OHS pro­gram to any­one inter­est­ed in a job in health and safety.

Occupational Health & Safety Certificate student

The pro­gram real­ly helped me build a net­work to sup­port my career. It was life-chang­ing for me.
