Western College has the sustainability to offer full certificate courses, while still maintaining the flexibility and expertise necessary to offer short, sharp and highly specific programs for our community.

We endeavor to provide the most accurate and up-to-date training information available. The training industry is one of continual change and improvement. It is important to note, therefore, that courses are subject to change. If there is a change in a certain course of your interest, you will be advised of this at the time of your enquiry. Western College is grateful for your understanding.
