On January 11, 2022, the First Nations University of Canada formally launched the Indigenous Continuing Education Centre (ICEC), based out of the Regina Campus.
As Canada’s only national Indigenous-owned post-secondary institution, with established community-based programs, it is a natural expansion for the First Nations University of Canada (FNUniv) to establish an Indigenous Continuing Education Centre (ICEC). The Indigenous Continuing Education Centre will strengthen connections, communities, and economies by sharing Indigenous knowledge and providing inclusive, accessible, and recognized learning opportunities.
Successful learners of the ICEC course offerings will earn digital credentials in badges, micro-credentials, and professional certificates. Increasingly, micro-credentials are recognized within corporate Canada to enhance employability by up-skilling and increasing competencies. The First Nations University of Canada is in partnership with the Association of Registrars of the Universities and Colleges of Canada (ARUCC) and MyCreds™ to provide verified credentials electronically to all learners.
ICEC’s current course offerings include the FNUniv Board Governance Program, in partnership with the Johnson Shoyama Graduate School of Public Policy, and 4 Seasons of Reconciliation, one of the most in-demand courses to date.
As the Centre evolves, course offerings will expand and be made available through various delivery methods over the next few months. ICEC is committed to providing quality professional development to individuals, organizations, and communities.
Individuals or organizations interested in receiving more information on the Indigenous Continuing Education Centre and available courses may contact the Director at firstname.lastname@example.org or visit www.fnuniv.ca/icec.
