Receive High School Credit
The British Columbia Ministry of Education has approved the CSIA Level 1 Certification course as an External Credential. An External Credential is a credit that has been developed outside the Ministry of Education and takes a student outside of the regular classroom setting. High School Students aged 15 and over can receive 2 credits towards their High School Diploma if they successfully complete the CSIA Level 1 Instructors course. Once a student has passed the CSIA Level 1 Instructors course, they must present a CSIA membership card, a signed letter of congratulations from the Executive Director, and a CSIA pin to the school. The school will then examine the course documentation and provide 2 credits to the student.
