Community Colleges
Nova Scotia Community College (NSCC) offers over 134 programs of study, a wide selection of training courses, from mechanical engineering, to culinary and child care studies. Community colleges do not offer degree programs like universities, but certificates and diplomas in certain occupational fields. There are 13 NSCC campuses throughout Nova Scotia. Community college programs are generally less costly than a university degree program.

Private Career Colleges
Private Career Colleges are privately owned and operated businesses that offer training certificates in many different fields such as secretarial, paralegal and flight attendants courses. The tuition fees for different programs vary.

Apprenticeship is an exchange agreement between an apprentice, employer and the government. In this agreement, the apprentice agrees to work for the employer in exchange for intensive on-the-job training in the employer’s field. Once the on-the-job training is completed, the apprentice will have to take certification exams. Then they will be eligible to practice their trade throughout Canada.
