SITE_Pie_Puzzle_FullThe BCIT SITE Centre uses the Advanced Placement & Prior Learning (APPL) method to create personalized education pathways.

The APPL is an innovative approach to translating experience into BCIT credits. APPL relies on traditional course-by-course equivalency of the Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR) as well as assessing for direct placement into an upper level of a BCIT business program. This model builds on the assumption that “the whole is greater than the sum of the parts“.

APPL evaluates an individual’s combined:

• Workplace training
• Experience (employment, volunteer work, etc.)
• Previous education

The SITE Centre has created specialized APPL pathways for:

• Military Members
• First Responders
• McDonald’s Canada Managers
• Mature Students

We invite you to explore the website, and get in touch with us to discuss your pathway or a partnership pathway for your organization. You are closer than you think to earning a post-secondary credential!
