ABOUT ACADEMY OF LEARNING CAREER COLLEGE (AOLCC)

Our History

Founded as a franchise system in 1987, Academy of Learning® Career College originally specialized in computer and business skills training for adult learners, based on the Integrated Learning™ System (“ILSTM”). This system is unique to Canada and offers a method of learning whereby course materials and instruction provide an all-encompassing learning experience using multi-sensory learning styles and preferences through student workbooks, media presentations and hands-on exercises. These learning styles are supported by an on-site qualified Campus Facilitator. ILS is exclusive to Academy of Learning® College.

Beginning in the 1990s, some Academy of Learning® Career College campuses also offer lesson content delivered to students in a vibrant, interactive classroom community. These courses follow the traditional delivery of content by an Instructor, based on daily standardized lesson plans that consist of approved curriculum. When using this method of delivery, the instructor engages the class, provides individual coaching to help students gain the skills and knowledge they need to succeed, actively monitors their progress, and is ready to address their questions and concerns.

In more recent years, Academy of Learning® Career College adopted “e-learning” technology as an extension of the Integrated Learning™ System. Students complete course materials presented within a comprehensive Academy Online system. This system incorporates online presentations, tutorials and media that combine with access to instructional materials, simulated labs, exercises, as well as quizzes, review questions, or pre- and post-tests. In this delivery method, students are supported by a qualified Online Instructor or an on-site qualified campus Facilitator.

Additionally, Academy of Learning Career College has continued meeting adult learners’ changing needs by leveraging technology to offer an innovative method of learning – virtual learning. Students have the opportunity to learn and participate in a Virtual Classroom and participate in a live session with their instructor every day. Students also master the skills and knowledge they need to succeed in their future careers through online digital media, textbooks, and software programs. A community of like-minded learners who are also changing their lives is just a click away!

Today, over 50 Academy of Learning® College campuses, from British Columbia to Prince Edward Island, have helped students successfully completed over one million training courses. Depending on the province or territory, program offerings have expanded to Diploma-level and Certificate-level programs in the areas of Accounting, Business, Community Support Worker, Customer Service, Healthcare, Home Inspection, Hospitality, Information Technology, Insurance, Legal, Office Administration, and Web Design.

New programs and courses are continuously being developed to ensure that students receive current skills that will enable them to be successful in the marketplace, while working to better their lives.

For more than 30 years, Academy of Learning® Career College’s main focal point has always been and continues to be the student. It provides methods of learning that will fulfil students’ needs, as well as the requirements of today’s competitive job market. AOLCC has helped learners successfully complete over one million training courses.

Hear from AOLCC Graduates!

"Right from the beginning I knew I wanted to go to the Academy of Learning Career College. I had researched other colleges but the Admission Director was very welcoming, listened to my needs and provided me with the necessary information to make an informed choice of the career I wanted to pursue. I have learned so much from the Administrative Assistant diploma program with the excellent help and support from my facilitators. And on the top of that help, they have provided me with extra guidance and assistance in writing a professional resume and letter as well as providing me with job leads related to my goal. It is their enthusiasm to see me succeed that has kept me motivated."

"After working for a firm for 28 years I was informed that they no longer needed my services. I was a mature worker and had tied myself to one job and one company for many years, so I was apprehensive about looking for a new job. After submitting many resumes, I realized that I was unable to meet the requirements of most employers. My years of experience no longer mattered. I needed to upgrade my skills to be marketable and competitive in today’s workforce. I decided on Academy of Learning Career College. The Facilitators were tremendous and always ready and able to help. I liked the idea of self-paced learning. I was able to complete some of the subjects quickly, and others were more challenging and required extra time and effort. In less than a year I graduated with an Honours diploma. I had a sense of accomplishment and felt very pleased with myself."

AOLCC Graduate

"Before I started at Academy of Learning Career College, I had basic computer skills. I had some office experience, but I could not find a job in my field of accounting. Without Canadian education and experience, employers would not hire me. I enrolled in the Computerized Accounting diploma program at Academy of Learning Career College so I could get the skills I needed. At first I was apprehensive about starting school, but I’m so glad I did. The instructors were very patient no matter how many questions I asked, and they encouraged me as I worked hard to increase my typing speed. The staff gave me many job leads and they put in extra time and effort to help me polish my resume and cover letters. I really appreciated the job search I received after I graduated."

"I am in the process of completing one of the Information Technology designations which complements my current career objectives. Like Academy of Learning Career College programs, the one I chose is career focused, and I must say, it has definitely brought me up to speed with current technology trends. I am glad I made Academy of Learning Career College my choice and I highly recommend them to anybody who is seeking a credible qualification with a flexible study schedule."

AOLCC Graduate

"I just want to thank the Academy of Learning Career College for giving me a start as a new comer to Canada. Coming here I realized that I had to start my life all over again. Not knowing where to start, I received a flyer in the mail from Academy of Learning Career College with a list of programs they were offering. Hesitantly I called the school and got enrolled in the Personal Support Worker program. I got trained within six months and graduated with a diploma as a Personal Support Worker. I am so grateful now because I feel a sense of belonging because I am now a member of the healthcare field. It is a career I have always wanted."

- MARCIA BENNETT
AOLCC Graduate

"During my learning experience at Academy of Learning Career College, I received encouragement, help with all my course related issues and much positive feedback with regards to career objectives and education training objectives. The staff always helped to keep me in positive spirits when exam testing and certification tests were at hand. The placement coordinator has been extremely helpful with job searching and motivation. Academy of Learning Career College has been a comfortable learning scenario and will always be my number one choice for future learning experiences."
