Private career colleges focus on preparing students for employment in a specific trade or occupation, such as a legal assistance or human resources. Many private career colleges provide flexible schedules, allowing you to take courses while continuing to work.
If you are taking these courses because you want to be employed in a particular field, you will want to do your research carefully and understand how your potential employer views this type of education. In Ontario, private career colleges are required by law to be registered and must have their programs approved by the Superintendent of Private Career Colleges.
