British Columbia Provincial Prior Learning Assessment and Recognition (PLAR) System
In British Columbia, the Industry Training Authority (ITA) has established policies that sets out the process for assessing and awarding credit to individuals registering in an industry training or apprenticeship program. A brief overview follows:
- Graduates of Foundation Industry Training Programs can automatically receive technical training and work-based hours credit if the programs are pre-approved by ITA. The level of credit available is detailed in the Program Profile for each approved Foundation Industry Training Program.
- The ITA will automatically recognize credit for Red Seal programs for technical training taken in another jurisdiction, where the training is recognized by that jurisdiction.
- Applicants may be able to challenge levels or trade certification. Please visit ITA BC’s website for detailed information
