148 pages. St. Clair College presents a model
whereby one group of professionals, non-Ontario trained accountants, can
gain faster access to Canadian certification. This guide outlines how to
develop a model for delivering a College Access Program, describes the
negotiation process conducted by the College with the Certified General
Accountants Association of Ontario, and details the resulting agreement
with the CGA. Designed around a prior learning assessment format, the model
allows the college to assess the individual's level of knowledge, grant
college credit, and recommend an entry level into the CGA certification
program through recognition of foreign academic credentials and transferable
work experiences. Descriptors: Colleges of applied arts and technology;
