Canadian College Accreditation Program

Success College is accredited by CCAPSuccess College is accredited by CCAP. This is the highest accreditation possible for our industry, and it validates that we offer high level career training.

We know that success depends on our quality training. That means relevant knowledge and practical skills taught by industry professionals. After an intensive three year evaluation process, Success College has been accredited by the Career College Accreditation Program (CCAP). This is the highest accreditation possible for our industry, plus it validates that we offer high level career training.

In fact, Success College is the only classroom-based campus college in the Maritimes to earn this designation.

Obtaining CCAP accreditation means that a college’s quality standards have been validated by an independent third party. CCAP developed their high standards after more than a year of consultation with stakeholders including federal and provincial/territorial governments, private career colleges, other post-secondary education groups, and industry. Emphasis is placed on both the attainment of a high quality standard and regular self-evaluation to improve the quality of education and services provided (continuing quality improvement). These standards will continue to evolve and grow as a result of CCAP’s own process of continuing quality improvement.

CCAP Standards are comprised of nine quality criteria. These standards are comprehensive and reflect current thinking as it applies to the measurement of quality among Canada’s private career colleges. The consistent application of the standards enables institutions to achieve excellence in all that they do. Accordingly, students and all other stakeholders, can be confident that a CCAP accredited institution meets or exceeds high standards of quality in Canadian post-secondary education. CCAP Standards include:

  • Student Learning and Job Readiness – a commitment to excellence in student learning, skills development and job readiness.
  • Staffing – instructional and non-instructional staff members that possess the appropriate combination of education, training and experience to deliver superior skills development.
  • Facilities and Technical Resources – facilities (e.g. buildings, classrooms, instructional facilities, furniture, computers and other equipment) that support learning outcomes for each course of study.
  • Student Policies and Services – Student policies and services based on ongoing assessments of student needs, supporting the advancement of student learning and skills development consistent with the institution’s mission.
  • Administration and Leadership – an administrative system that facilitates the accomplishment of its mission, furthers institutional effectiveness, and supports student learning.
