Our College is small and we are much like family. We insist on a low drama atmosphere where people can feel happy and relaxed. It is believed that the best way to learn is when you are comfortable, respecting what and who you are learning with and from. In turn we will respect your individuality and need to learn while doing the best we can to help you become successful. Based on availability, Brandon University residences are available to our students. Please ask for the contact information.
Our Educators love the industry and their jobs, we have almost 30 years of success behind our teaching so if you want to be here and want to learn, then you will. If you are not serious about your program you will only learn what is necessary and perhaps little extra. If you are ready to love your work and be "better than the average bear" then lets get started.
