About tav college and our programs of study
WHAT IS A DEC PROGRAM?
D.E.C. derives from the French language and is an acronym for diplôme d’études collégiales; diploma of college studies (DCS) in English. All DEC programs allow graduates to advance to university, however, three (3) year DEC programs allow graduates to immediately enter the workforce if they wish.
The college system in Quebec is the mid-point between high school and university and these two-to-three-year programs are unique to the Quebec education system.

WHAT IS AN AEC PROGRAM?
A.E.C. derives from the French language and is an acronym for attestation d’études collégiales; attestation of college studies (ACS) in English. With this certificate, graduates become qualified to enter the Quebec workforce.
These programs are also known as career programs because they train students for specific career training within certain industries. *Note that Quebec high school students are not able to apply to AEC programs right out of high school, see AEC admission requirements here.
