Trent University offers AQ, ABQ and PQP courses four times a year. Depending upon your timetable, you may want to consider which session is best for you. The summer session is short and so requires you to complete a lot of work in a relatively shorter time period than the other three sessions. Each course requires 125 hours of work.
All the courses we have listed are available in every session. If you see it in our list of courses, we will be offering it!

New Ontario Grads - You are eligible to register if you meet the first three points below:
have completed all B.Ed course work before the AQ course start date
have completed all required days of practicum for your B.Ed before the AQ course start date
have applied to OCT and have an applicant number (it does not matter if you have or don't have temporary certification with OCT)
your graduation date does not matter
Not an Ontario Grad?
- If you completed your B.Ed outside of Ontario, you have to wait until you are a full member of good standing with OCT before taking a course.
IMPORTANT: If you are not a member of good standing by the end of your AQ course, we will hold on to your course information and send it to OCT when you are a member of good standing. OCT is taking longer than normal to process memberships and we have taken this into consideration.
