Advanced Credentials

Are you a college or university graduate? Assiniboine offers a range of advanced diploma programs to help you develop specialized skills in a particular industry and take your career to the next level.

What is an advanced diploma?

Advanced diplomas are a college level credential that require a prior post-secondary credential (e.g. university degree or college diploma) and are well suited for those with prior life, career and educational experience.

Intensive and skills-oriented, advanced credentials are a way to fast track your education to set yourself apart, re-enter an industry with a new focus, or increase your employability for a specific profession.

While some of our advanced programs will require you have a particular diploma or related background (i.e. Early Childhood Program Management), others are open to any diploma or degree holder.

What advanced diploma programs does Assiniboine offer?

Whether you’re a recent university graduate looking to top off your education with a Marketing diploma, or an Agribusiness student graduating and continuing directly into the GIS advanced diploma, the options to build your skills and increase your employability are endless.

Assiniboine has the following advanced diploma programs to choose from:
