Recognized as a premier training institution in B.C., MTI Community College is an accredited private post-secondary school geared towards exceeding industry standards with a sharp focus on supporting students through a well-rounded practical applied approach.
Offering certificate and diploma programs in high-demand faculties including Child, Family & Community Studies, Health Care, Hospitality & Tourism, and Business, MTI is committed to deliver quality training of workforce skills, which prepare adults for success in meaningful career opportunities.
MTI is dedicated in supporting student growth and development based on the founding principles of maximizing potential, training for the future, and individualizing success, which speaks to the culture students are introduced into when they attend MTI. It’s an integrated engagement with a one-on-one connection between students and faculty, a defining benchmark that sets MTI apart from other institutions.
MTI provides assistance beyond the classroom such as financial budgeting, flexible schedules, and the ability to begin training when the timing is right for the student.
“We maximize student’s potential by providing training that not only focuses on the skills needed for a specific career, but also on the life skills needed to give students the greatest chance of success upon graduation,” says Dylan Matter, vice president of operations.
MTI keeps class sizes to a manageable number; a smaller class size affords a more personal approach, which also allows for significant student-instructor interaction.
With a hands-on teaching approach, MTI employs top-notch instructors who have a breadth of experience and are real-world practitioners with existing professional networks, consultancies or active businesses.
Early Childhood Care & Education (ECCE) is a leading program at MTI (delivered at all six campuses), and is recognized for students who quickly secure employment upon graduation.
“We continue to maintain high student enrollment numbers for ECCE and most importantly, actual student success rates,” reveals Matter. “We have a great relationship in networking with day care and preschool centres from Vancouver to Chilliwack. As a result, we’ve kept our curriculum current with the industry demands, which enables us to provide our students with training that is current and competitive in today’s job market.”

“One of the most important things for MTI is being able to measure our own success by the success of our students, success of our students, which means employment after graduation,” explains Matter.
MTI recognizes that many students have responsibilities and challenges outside of school. By individualizing the success of each student, MTI provides assistance beyond the classroom such as financial budgeting, flexible schedules, and the ability to begin training when the timing is right for the student.
