Regulatory Framework

The Private Career Training Institutions Agency (PCTIA) was created in 2004 to carry out the important role of student protection. PCTIA sets basic education standards for registered private career training institutions in British Columbia and establishes standards of quality which must be met by accredited institutions.

PCTIA is established under the Private Career Training Institutions Act, with its corresponding Regulations and Bylaws, and falls under the responsibility of the BC Ministry of Advanced Education.
