Congratulations you have just completed one of the online programs from GBCTechtraining.

An official transcript is a record of your grades, issued by the school you attended. The transcript received directly from the issuing institution is typically printed on security sensitive paper, that is properly signed/authenticated and in a sealed envelope.

When will I need official transcripts?

So, you have successfully registered for one of our online technical programs, have requested your Interactive Learning Package and now have your program material. If you chose the USB format, you will find the following information helpful.

Before removing your USB from your computer, please remember to always remove it properly. If you remove the USB without using safe removal, your USB may become corrupted, which means that for all intents and purposes, it is ruined and unusable.

Over the last century we have seen some major changes in the working world.  We have watched women fight to become equals in a male dominated world and win many battles to receive the rights we have today.  But the battle is not over, particularly in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math, where women are still significantly underrepresented.

Before you head off to your interview, it's important for you to do your homework. I know, you wouldn’t have applied for the job if you didn’t think you are qualified for it but knowing you are prepared for the first or second meeting with your potential employerwill create confidence and improve your odds of getting the job.

We know that looking for a job is tough and very stressful, particularly if you can`t meet 100% of the technical knowledge and required skills an employer is using as a criteria for a job that you know you can do and that you really want. 

So you’ve checked out our programs and made the decision that one of them is right for you. Congrats, that’s a first big step on the path towards reaching your career goals.

Before you register, please make sure that your current computer and internet access meets our minimum specification; otherwise you could need to upgrade your system. Just for the record, our specification is really quite low and can be met using an older computer.  That being said, please be sure to check the specs below carefully so that you don’t get any surprises.

We know getting ready for your online exams can be stressful and even confusing, particularly if you don’t know where to start or where to write your exam. But don’t worry, It’s pretty simple. Here’s a step by step guide to help you access and complete your exam.
Before you begin make sure you have your login and password ready. This has previously been sent to you in your Registration Confirmation email notification. If you did not receive this email, please contact us at 1-866-279-1457 and we will resend it.

Ok, let’s begin.

Tuition Reimbursement 101: The Basics and How to Use It to Fund your Training

Personally funding your technical training can be a real challenge and sometimes it is simply not within a person`s financial reach. If you are fortunate and work for a progressive company, there might be another option available to you that you are not aware of.

It is called Tuition Assistance or Tuition Reimbursement.

To obtain your George Brown College Technician Certificates you must successfully pass all the modules in your program. This means that you must achieve a grade of at least 60% on each module’s exam.

So what happens if you fail a module exam?

Well, first at all, don’t get upset or too worried about it. You will have a chance to retake the exam without financial penalty.

 

Once again one more year is behind us and it’s almost time to file your 2016 income tax return.
