Portage, N-APPL partner to give CAF members credit for previous experience, training

Portage College has announced that it has partnered with the National Advanced Placement & Prior Learning (N-APPL) to help Canadian Armed Forces (CAF) members turn their military training and experience into credits. As a member of the N-APPL program, Portage will allow CAF members to gain advanced entry to diploma or degree programs and to gain block credits for their previous learning. The program will enable eligible current members and Veterans to fast-track their studies by receiving up to nine credits towards a Business program or six credits toward a Community Social Work program. “We reviewed the training plans, competencies, and skills that members earn as they receive their credentials and recognized clear instances of leadership, communications, and organizational management,” said Robin Tizzard, Dean of Health, Human Services and Business at Portage.
