In today’s economy, it’s more important than ever that education serves as a pathway to a career—and there’s never been a better time to consider training for a career with the Academy of Learning Career College. AOLCC’s network of institutions across Alberta is focused on preparing students for their future careers. This specialized preparation starts from the minute they start a program, to the moment when they land their dream job in their field. 

If you’re considering whether a career college program at AOLCC is right for you, read on to discover how career training leads to employment, and what sets AOLCC apart from the rest.

Why Career College Training Leads to Employment

Unlike a traditional four-year university education, which equips students with a more theoretical knowledge base, career college training gets students job-ready in a matter of months. The difference? Career college programs focus on preparing students for a career with hands-on training and practical knowledge. With career training, you’ll learn relevant skills that you’ll actually use on the job, enabling you to easily transition into your industry. 

As an example, within AOLCC’s Health Care Aide program, students gain clinical placement experience in addition to practical and theoretical knowledge, preparing them for a career in their field upon graduation.

Employers also recognize the benefits of career training. When applying for jobs, they’ll see that you have the qualifications necessary to succeed at their organization, rather than worrying about whether you’ll be able to adapt to the hands-on aspects of the role. Career college equips you with that job-ready level of practical experience, placing you at an advantage over those who have theoretical knowledge only. Not only will this make the job application process easier, but your skills will also make you feel confident on the job from day one once you start working.
