Professionalism is something that should be developed even before you venture into your work life. The best place to develop a professional approach is your classroom. At Columbia College Calgary, students get a sneak peek into how their professional lives are going to be. Our courses are designed to impart a sense of professionalism in students and make them employment ready. It is mandatory for all students to undergo certain number of hours of work experience or practicum during the course. Practicum gives students an opportunity to practice whatever they have learnt in theory and also helps them build a sense of professionalism.
