Vocational Trades Assessments

VOCATIONAL TRADES ASSESSMENTS

The Vocational Trades Assessments are designed to ensure that you will be able to succeed in the program you have chosen. The assessment has two components: a Math assessment and an English (Reading/Vocabulary/Writing) assessment.  This testing is not designed to prevent you from attending Kwantlen Polytechnic University rather it is intended to help you start at the appropriate level. If you need to improve your skills in reading, writing or math, upgrading can be done through selected courses through the Faculty of Academic and Career Advancement.
