Workplace Education Programs
Our Professional Development committee offers a variety of courses throughout the year at different locations throughout the Annapolis Valley. These programs are brought to you at no cost. All Workplace Education programs are fully funded by the Federal Government. The Nova Scotia Department of Labour and Advanced Education has been a valuable partner of the AVCC in making these programs possible. As the full cost for participants is funded under this program, in return, we expect a commitment to attend at least 80% of the sessions. You do not need to be a member of the Chamber of Commerce to participate; however, you do need to be employed.
New Intake Form Requirement
As of February 1, 2019 all Workplace Education participants must complete a mandatory intake form. This is a federal requirement and all host organizations across the country must abide by these regulations. The intake form requests your SIN number along with other personal information. Given that these courses are funded by the federal government, they request the information for course evaluation purposes.
AVCC is responsible for collecting this information on behalf of the federal government. Upon your registration, we will provide more information about this process. You will complete the form on paper and submit it during your first class, after which the AVCC will securely transfer your information to the government and shred the paper copies of your form.
We will be offering four Workplace Education programs this fall.
