St. Lawrence College (SLC) launched three new full-time programs and a full slate of micro-credentials that are designed to meet the needs of industry, our communities, workers who want to upskill, and life-long learners. The new offerings reflect the College’s commitment to offer relevant, accessible skills training and educational opportunities that align to industry and employer needs.

The three latest programs are:

  • Food Safety and Security Techniques: a one-year (two semester) Ontario College Certificate offered on the Kingston campus. Taught by a multidisciplinary faculty team, students will gain a fundamental understanding of all segments of the supply chain from farm to table.

  • Cybersecurity: a one-year (two semester) Ontario College Graduate Certificate offered on the Kingston campus. Teaches the skills needed to protect an organization’s computers, servers, networks, and applications from breaches and unauthorized access.

SLC offers many micro-credentials, which are short, competency-based training opportunities that focus on in-demand workplace skills. They can be taken individually or stacked to build larger certificates, and multiple micro-credentials may serve as pathways to further education and other SLC programs. Each micro-credential earned comes with a digital badge that can be shared with employers and added to a digital profile or portfolio.

New offerings include:

  • Cybersecurity: Mitigating Risk, Scam Identification, Scam Prevention, Scam Reporting
  • Distribution Systems: Transportation Services, Logistics, Fleet Optimization, Fulfilment, Inventory Optimization
