Maritime Business College uses a modular system of training for its counselling courses. In modular programs, theoretical and practical issues are closely integrated, and learning outcomes are clearly defined.
At Maritime Business College, we employ a variety of techniques for our counselling courses to ensure that students thrive in a stimulating environment. In addition to traditional classroom instruction, our Instructors employ field trips, guest speakers, industry videos, team projects, online interaction, case studies, role playing, and mock simulations.
Take our counselling courses for 12 consecutive months, and then complete 2 months of on-the-job training. During this period, students have a winter break, spring break, summer break, and are off on statutory holidays. Take our Counselling Skills/Social Human Services Program, and receive your Diploma in just 14 months!
