FYI-How does Prior Learning Assessment Work in the ICP?
The Instructor Certification Program Requirements may be met in a number of different ways other than completion of the ICP program:
As per the LCFA Collective Agreement--Appendix A
- Exemptions may be granted in view of previous training or experience.
- Courses offered by an accredited institution may be deemed as suitable alternatives to courses described in this program.
If you would like to receive the ICP certificate, in order to meet the residency requirement you must complete two (2) of the ICP courses delivered by Lethbridge College to convocate. In this instance, you may on receive PLA for four (4) courses. If an instructor has received PLA for five (5) courses and chooses to complete only one course delivered by Lethbridge College they will not meet the residency requirement. As such, the instructor will meet the employment requirement, but will not receive the credential.
You must apply to graduate.
If you are successfully completed or will complete your program requirements prior to the end of academic year (June) you may apply to graduate.

- ICP courses are offered at no cost to the applicant. There may be a cost for books and supplies in some courses.
- All participants in the ICP courses must apply to and be accepted into the program.
- Full time instructors will get priority with registration in any ICP course as they are required to take these courses. Casual, term certain instructors and staff will be allowed to register in a course if there is room. Registration will take place on a first come first served basis. If a course is full and a full time instructor wants access to the course, a registrant who is casual, term certain, or staff may be removed from the course to provide space for the full time instructor. If this occurs you will be notified.
- If instructors have prior learning experience, they may choose to apply for Prior Learning Assessment Recognition (PLAR) for some or all of the ICP courses.The residency requirement for the Instructor Certification program is four credits (25 percent of the credential credits). Accordingly, instructors must complete at least two courses in the ICP program to be eligible to receive the credential.
