Newly expanded, the Verdun Adult and Career Centre is an innovative learning Centre, offering vocational training programs on-site and online. We pride ourselves in creating a vibrant and safe learning environment for all our programs. By implementing strict health and safety protocols we have continued offering students access to our Centre to engage in activities in support of their learning.
We are located in beautiful Verdun, centrally located and easily accessible. This diverse community offers us an ideal location with proximity to three metro stations and multiple bus routes.
If a career in one of our programs interests you, we urge you to contact us at VACC@lbpearson.ca for further information.
History was made this past Tuesday at Verdun Adult and Career Centre
Thank you to Rep Rachel Drouillard and the amazing team from Milwaukee Tools who debuted their first school visit, showcasing their current tool lineup geared for industry.
VACC construction students were able to explore the various displays, get awesome explanations and demos from the team, all while trying the various tools for themselves. They discovered that these tools not only provide improved ergonomics for workers, but also make the tasks safer and more efficient.
Students and staff were excited, engaged, and look forward to more visits from our industry partners.

What a great program, amazing work everyone!!
Our student, Paolo Gualtieri, has been chosen to represent Québec in this year’s Skills Compétences Canada plumbing competition. He will be participating in a virtual competition with seven other candidates from across Canada. We congratulate Paolo for his achievement and are excited for the opportunity to cheer him on. Paolo has been coached by our very own Evangelos Afenticoglou and we look forward to celebrating their continued success.
Paolo will be competing from VACC on May 28, 29, and 30, and the competition will then be broadcast on June 15, 2021 by Skills Compétences Canada via YouTube.
Good Luck to you both!
VACC Support Staff in support of the negotiations for a fair province-wide Collective Agreement. What a great day to be outside sporting their “IASS” shirts in solidarity.
Thank you to our amazing Support Staff at VACC for all that they do!
Full engagement in VACC’s Customer Service class with Nahla on Saturday. Our students were engaged in interactive activities to review for their upcoming exam on ‘Advising Customers’.
An exceptional customer experience is the most important thing!
“It’s all about serving/consulting, not selling”.
Bravo VACC students and Nahla for an incredible class, and a special shout out to our staff members, Kara, and Jennifer, for so believing in the program, they enrolled!
The Vocational Exploration program in collaboration with Beurling Academy students has been in full force since August. The skills that we have helped them acquire have been life changing!
Last week, we had the pleasure of attending two of the onsite classes, taught by a recent Pearson Culinary graduate. The students created the first ever “Buzz Beurling Burger” incorporating a bit of local history into the culinary experience. Students were encouraged to put into practice health and safety and other culinary skills previously learned online. Newly appointed Beurling Principal, Jason Ferris, had a taste of the Buzz Beurling Burger and our partnership in action.
Thanks again to all involved!

The demand for qualified employees has never been stronger, and the timing could not better to take advantage of one of our many offerings. So why not get a jump on your career through focused training that certifies your abilities and gets you to the job market?
Our business programs complete in less than a year and are scheduled to accommodate a busy lifestyle. They provide real learning, certification, and lead to amazing opportunities in high demand and exciting careers.
The feedback from our graduated students has been fantastic. So much so, that our own staff has taken the opportunity to further develop and certify their skills by participating in one or more of the programs.
