Tec de Monterrey Students Graduate!

On Thursday Dec 15, a graduation celebration was held in the Agora in honour of our 77 students from the Tec de Monterrey in Mexico. These students successfully completed the Academic Immersion Program run through the International Programs Office. They were all smiles as they received their certificates and shared a very special moment looking back on their semester.
Host families, friends, staff and faculty were present to celebrate with the students and wish them well on their future endeavors. The students are now official John Abbott alumni and will always be welcome at JAC!

Study Damage Insurance with John Abbott’s Continuing Education

Our health, our home, our life, our car – Quebecers insure all these and so many more, making the Damage Insurance industry a boom area for your new job. The facts? Damage insurance is challenging and diversified. In this province alone, more than 1,600 jobs are opened up every year, by 900 employers!

What do you need? An AEC (Attestation d’études collégiales) is key. John Abbott College, one of the first to offer this program of study in English in the province, has a 100% job placement rate for those students who passed the industry exam. Every student is now working in the exact job he or she was aiming for: brokers, agents, claim adjusters,  and underwriters.

Private events such as the recently held insurance industry job fair, ensure continued success for students of this program.

“The short and long-term career perspectives for graduates of the Damage Insurance program are very promising. The program provides all the necessary skills needed to work in this field. Being taught by active industry experts, they also prepare our students for the certification exam,” says Sylvie Boucher, Coordinator for this popular program.
