Career Program Pathways are sets of courses designed to bridge a learner who does not meet the entrance requirements for a Bow Valley College diploma or certificate program from upgrading to the credentialed program of their choice. These pathways provide learners with prerequisite equivalency for credit programs by identifying the core concepts and competencies required and offering courses designed to provide that background knowledge and practice.
