How to Apply
Our next available intake will start on August 20, 2017 and we will start accepting applications in May 2017.
This program is popular. We receive more applications than we can accommodate. Your application will be judged based on your Canadian Language Benchmarks, past education and experience, the quality of your written submission, and the results of a screening interview at the College. Simply meeting the basic requirements does not guarantee an interview or acceptance into the program.
You can print an application form here or you can pick-up an application package at the CRTP Office:
