All private institutions that provide career training programs to students where the tuition charged is greater than or equal to $1,000, and/or where the instructional time is greater than or equal to 40 hours must be registered under the Private Training Act. The Private Training Institutions Branch (PTIB) is responsible for establishing basic education standards and providing consumer protection for students enrolled with a registered career training institution, and for standards of quality for accredited career training institutions. A list of registered / accredited institutions can be found on PTIB’s website.

PTIB also manages the Student Training Completion Fund which provides tuition refund protection to students in the event a registered institution ceases to operate, or if a student is found to have been misled by an institution.
