We offer Additional Qualification (AQ) courses that are specifically designed for Ontario-certified teacher and focus on the Ontario education curriculum. Taking AQ courses can help you upgrade your skills, expand your knowledge and advance your career.

Additionally, ASPIRE offers professional development courses, certificates and workshops that leverage expertise in a variety of fields. These professional development courses can be taken individually or combined to form certificates.
