Newly expanded, the Verdun Adult and Career Centre is an innovative learning Centre, offering vocational training programs on-site and online. We pride ourselves in creating a vibrant and safe learning environment for all our programs. By implementing strict health and safety protocols we have continued offering students access to our Centre to engage in activities in support of their learning.
We are located in beautiful Verdun, centrally located and easily accessible. This diverse community offers us an ideal location with proximity to three metro stations and multiple bus routes.
If a career in one of our programs interests you, we urge you to contact us at VACC@lbpearson.ca for further information.
The Vocational Exploration program in collaboration with Beurling Academy students has been in full force since August. The skills that we have helped them acquire have been life changing!
Last week, we had the pleasure of attending two of the onsite classes, taught by a recent Pearson Culinary graduate. The students created the first ever “Buzz Beurling Burger” incorporating a bit of local history into the culinary experience. Students were encouraged to put into practice health and safety and other culinary skills previously learned online. Newly appointed Beurling Principal, Jason Ferris, had a taste of the Buzz Beurling Burger and our partnership in action.
Thanks again to all involved!
Massimo Di Iorio started the Plumbing and Heating program in August 2020 and in only 7 short months he has acquired the skills, knowledge and confidence to push his limits and accomplish enrichment in his program.
Most recently, Massimo plumbed in a sump pump to his grey water system, demonstrating his acquired expertise.
We are thrilled to be part of Massimo’s experience and wish to commend both him and his instructors on their incredible work and achievements.
