Training Completion Assurance Fund

The Training Completion Assurance Fund protects students in the event of a closure of a registered private career college.

Through the fund, students affected by a closure may obtain support to complete their training at another institution (if available) or receive a refund. Students may be eligible to claim costs associated with completing their training, such as transportation and child care.

The fund became available to students on January 1, 2009.


We are committed to providing accessible customer service. Contact if you would like any of these documents in an accessible format of your choice.
