Adult Education Services

About our Education Division

The Private Industry Council’s (PIC) Education Division provides a wide range of educational services to fulfill the special needs of the adult learner as well as youths. Its mission is to make students as employable as possible through academic enrichment and to develop the essential skills within each student that meet the demands of our present society.

The Education Division includes a multitude of programming, including Adult Education, which offers a wealth of resources to adult learners. Programs that fall under the umbrella term “Adult Education” help adult students gain the skills they need to go on to post-secondary training and employment.
