For more than 30 years, the Canadian College of Health Science & Technology has helped its students forge new career paths into the fields of health care and information technology. Every instructor is currently employed in his or her area of expertise, allowing students to glean real-world insights that are unattainable from textbooks who have never even treated a patient. Each program also incorporates hands-on experience; the Registered Massage Therapy program, for example, lets students knead the muscles of real clients, and the Physiotherapy Assistant program includes a 200-hour clinical placement. Some of the college's other standout programs include an accelerated PC-repair-technician course and an accounting and payroll administrator program.

The experienced J.A.M. Entertainment instructor schools guitar strummers, mandolin pickers, and bass pluckers on a wide variety of music styles in the privacy of his own fully equipped studio. A dedicated, Band Ayd Systems–supported musician and experienced stringed-instrument pedant, Joe Maio can train students one-on-one in acoustic, electric, and air strumming. His program combines music theory with audio jam tracks so that students can get an idea of what it's like to play among other instruments without having to assemble a garage philharmonic orchestra. Within his studio's quiet confines, students can pursue a course of study on guitar, mandolin, and bass, and learn to play Latin guitar, country picking, electric blues, Top 40 wailing, or classical bass music. Students can also opt for music-theory lessons, or a music-theory class dedicated specifically to guitar theory.
