Ontario Secondary School Diploma Credit Aquisition Support (OSSD)
OSSD is a benchmark education credential in Ontario looked upon by many employers as a “must have” when going through their new employee selection process. Academy of Learning Career and Business College works closely with area school boards in determining appropriate course selection, with our primary focus being on strengthening English and Mathematics skill levels. In addition, we can provide mature student Prior Learning Assessment/Recognition (PLAR) preparation and testing services, thereby helping reduce timelines and cost by granting credits toward a client’s diploma.
Our OSSD credit acquisition support program (up to a maximum of 8 credits) will help those who do not have a high school diploma, but whose skills are at or above the Grade 10 level, to prepare for College or technical programs. In some cases, the OSSD (often with a few occupationally focused and computer literacy courses) in itself can qualify you for employment in your identified Occupational goal.
