Credentials & Affiliates

It’s not easy to become or remain a registered and licensed education provider in Canada; the rules and regulations are strict, precise and designed to protect you, the student. We are proud to have held up to these standards since 1996.

Our business, instructional and evaluative methods have been reviewed and approved many times over, by various regulatory bodies, so that the Centre for Distance Education is:

    • National Association of Career Colleges logo
    • Private College Association of Nova Scotia logo
    • N S F International logo
    • Canadian Health Information Management Association logo


As part of the government registration process, each of our programs must go through two industry reviews before we are allowed to offer them. This means that two companies who specialize in the trade we’re offering must review the program and sign a form that says that yes, it is suitable for the industry and yes, they’d hire a graduate of this program.

We have been continuously developing new programs to keep up with the changing demands of the workplace and to give our students an edge in an increasingly competitive job market.

We continually invest resources to complete research projects that help us provide the most current programs and technology. This includes working with educators from public institutions such as universities to develop new teaching methods that are specific to the adult learner.
