Studying in Quebec - Vocational Training: In vocational training, a program involves learning all tasks and operations required to practice a trade. Unlike other forms of high school or theoretical teaching, a vocational training program offers a more hands-on approach in the field of trade, that one is interested in. Skills for a particular trade are developed, to equip a student with experience rather than just theoretical knowledge, in order to easily carry out a ‘real-life’ job in that field of trade.
21 Diverse Economic Sectors: Aerospace, manufacturing, computer technology, food services, tourism and communications are just a few examples of the 21 diverse economic sectors for which vocational training programs exist. According to Mels’ 2008 Relance Statistics, the average gross weekly salary for new DVS graduates working full-time is $ 611 or close to $ 32,000 annually and up 4 % since 2007.
Levels of Vocational Training in Quebec
DVS: stands for the Diploma in Vocational Studies. Designed for an individual to quickly access the labour market, this program is designed to offer a complete, general training in a particular field of study. The length of a DVS varies from 6 to 18 months.
AVS: stands for the Attestation in Vocational Specialization. This level of training opens doors to a speciality, allowing a student to deepen his knowledge in a given trade or meet particular demands in a related work field. AVS is usually shorter in time (3 to 8 months), compared to DVS.
