Academic Upgrading

Education opens doors - to better jobs, better pay, more career choices. If gaps in your education are holding you back, check out academic upgrading at Saskatchewan Polytechnic. We can help you unlock those doors and build a brighter future.

Our Programs

Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers academic upgrading at all four campuses. Adult 12 and GED® programs opens doors to many options - apprenticeship programs, polytechnic diplomas and certificates, university degrees. Study full-time during the day or part-time in the evening.

Adult 12

Adult 12 is the equivalent of Saskatchewan high school grade 12—and your ticket to education and job opportunities. To earn your Adult 12, you'll complete seven credits—at least five at the 30-level.

  • English Language Arts A30
  • English Language Arts B30
  • Canadian Studies (Social Studies 30, History 30 or Native Studies 30)
  • Math (20 or 30 level)
  • Science (20 or 30 level)
  • 2 Elective 30-level subjects (one may be a Prior Learning 30 credit)

Earn credit for your experience! Not all learning happens in the classroom. Non-formal learning (workshops, non-credit courses, on-the-job training), informal learning (life and work experiences) and certifications (such as journey-person certification)—all can help you earn a Prior Learning 30 credit. Download a Prior Learning 30 form or talk to a student counsellor.

GED® Preparation

GED® stands for General Educational Development. It's a high school equivalency diploma that will open the same education and careers doors as having your grade 12. We'll help you build confidence by refreshing your knowledge, explaining the test format and giving you practice tests. Saskatchewan Polytechnic offers full-time day and part-time evening GED® Preparation Classes. Attendance is mandatory the first two nights, because you'll write predictor tests in five subject areas. The class costs $100 plus textbook (Complete Canadian GED Preparation, published by Steck-Vaughn, approximately $35).

    Our Program

    Are you looking for effective project management skills so that you can complete projects on time and on budget? Saskatchewan Polytechnic is pleased to bring you the Applied Project Management Program. This online program will provide you with practical and professional skills in all aspects of project management. Participants in this program often work as project managers, supervisors, or project coordinators and have project work experience that puts the learning into context - no matter what industry they work in.

    Saskatchewan Polytechnic is a Registered Education Provider with the Project Management Institute (PMI)®, the largest international professional association for project managers. This program provides the necessary training to apply for the PMP® or CAPM® credentials with PMI®.

    We are also a Gold Seal Accredited Course Provider with the Canadian Construction Association, and the program is accredited for the maximum number of credits towards the Gold Seal Certification.

    Program Details

    The program is offered three times per year, starting in September, January and April. It is composed of six courses of varying lengths, which are taken over a 14-week period, although students have the option of completing it over several terms to a maximum of two years. The courses are designed to be taken in sequence to give you the opportunity to progressively work through the entire life cycle of a project - from initiation to closeout. The program finishes with a practical integration project. This final project provides an opportunity to demonstrate competency by consolidating the skills developed throughout the program. Students choose their own projects to complete the 12 required assignments. For more information, please download our Program Information Sheet.

    Learn Online

    You can access the online courses at any time of day. There is no requirement to be online at a specific time, but you must follow the weekly pace. Each module begins on a Saturday and ends the following Thursday. During this time, participants should expect to spend 9-12 hours per week on coursework and assignments.

    The online courses use a wide variety of tools such as discussion forums, blogs, email, group activities, and online videos to increase interactivity between the participants. There is also collaboration with the instructor by email, phone and desktop sharing.

    Anyone can learn online, but online learning requires different skills than learning in a classroom. It's important to know what to expect, to understand how to succeed in online learning, and to identify any barriers that may hinder your learning in an online environment.

    Complete this questionnaire to help you identify if learning project management online is appropriate for you at this time.

    Instructors

    All instructors have their Project Management Professional (PMP)® credential and many years' experience working as project managers and teaching project management.

    Tuition and Fees

    Tuition can be paid per course before each course starts throughout the duration of the program, or as a lump sum up front.

    Students must have a computer with Internet access, Microsoft Office (Word and Excel) and Microsoft Project (2003 or newer). Textbooks are optional at a small fee.

    TUITION: $5,500
    SOFTWARE: Approximately $145 plus tax
    TEXTBOOK: Optional. Approximately $10

    Important Notice: Mathematics Curriculum Change

    Effective July 1, 2012, all four Saskatchewan Polytechnic campuses will no longer offer Math A30, Math B30 and Math C30. This change is in response to the Saskatchewan Ministry of Education’s directive for the introduction of a new curriculum referred to as WNCP (Western and Northern Canadian Protocol).

    There are three pathways of study for the new math:
    A. Foundations of Mathematics
    B. Pre-Calculus Mathematics
    C. Workplace and Apprenticeship Mathematics
    *Each Saskatchewan Polytechnic campus may offer all or part of the three pathways in its programming.

    What does this mean for ADULT students who are either upgrading or completing their 20 or 30 level requirements for mathematics?

    1. Students planning to use math for post-secondary entrance need to check the entrance prerequisites required by the institution they wish to attend (check Saskatchewan Polytechnic’s requirements here: http://www.saskpolytech.ca). Once the new math prerequisites (pathway and course(s)) have been confirmed, students can register to upgrade/complete the appropriate math course(s).
    2. Students planning to use math for employment purposes should check which math pathway(s) will be accepted by the employer.
    3. Students planning to use math to complete Adult 12 (high school) can use either a 20 level or 30 level course from any of the new pathways as one of the seven credits required for Adult Basic Education completion.
    4. Who should register in the 20 level course prior to taking the 30 level pathway course?
      • Students who are switching pathways
      • Students who have not previously completed any 30 level math courses
      • Students who have completed only Math A30
    5. Students who have completed Math A30 and Math B30 and are choosing the pre-calculus pathway
    6. Who should register in the 30 level courses?
      • Students who have completed Math A30 and Math B30 should have the necessary skills to be successful in Foundations 30 without the 20 level pathway course.
      • Students who have previously completed Math A30, Math B30 and Math C30 should be able to successfully complete Foundations 30, Pre-Calculus 30 or Calculus 30 without the 20 level pathway course.
    7. If you are:
      • unable to determine which pathway would be best for you at this time, or
      • requiring a math credit for the sole purpose of completing your Adult 12, it is suggested that you choose the Foundations of Mathematics pathway.
      • The Calculus 30 curriculum does not change and will continue to be offered in the 2012-2013 academic year
    8. It is each student's responsibility to investigate and clarify the appropriate pathway for his/her future academic or employment needs.

    Important Notice: Regina Campus Only

    2016-2017 Registration for the Regina Basic Education Adult 12 EVENING courses will now be an in-person process. Please call 306.775.7463 for details.
