The Assiniboine Advantage
An Exceptional Student Experience
We combine classroom theory with hands-on learning, giving our students a comprehensive educational experience. Whether it’s building houses, running daily broadcast news shows, charting a patient, analyzing soil and water quality, developing computer networks, repairing an engine or managing a five-star restaurant, our programs are designed to connect you with industries and communities for real-world experience and networking.
Our Name Says It All: We're a Community
Yes, we have small class sizes. Yes, your instructor knows your name. Yes, you can get to your classes in under five minutes and still have time for a refuel of caffeine. But more importantly, you’ll make friendships that last a lifetime, learn from industry experts who can’t wait to share everything they know with you and study in an intimate setting that gives you the right tools for future success.
Jobs, Jobs, Jobs
We're proud to say 91% of recent graduates seeking work have found employment. The majority of our programs include a cooperative work placement or a work practicum as part of the curriculum, so you get experience in your field before graduation. It's predicted that 63% of the job openings in Manitoba are between now and 2020 will require some post-secondary education or training—we'll get you career ready!
Flexible Education That Fits You
Everyone has different goals and timelines, and we all come from different backgrounds. No two of us are the same, and at Assiniboine, you choose the program and its delivery method that fits you best. Whether you want to study full or part-time, by distance or in-class, in an urban centre or in your community, Assiniboine’s apprenticeship programs, certificates and diplomas are offered through a variety of approaches.
