Admission Requirements

General VIU admission requirements apply.

Students completing this certificate concurrent with and embedded within a VIU degree or diploma do not need to apply to this program. They should let their degree or diploma advisor, program coordinator, or the Registration Centre know of their intention.

Preference will be given to sponsored students, approved by Indigenous Services Canada (ISC), who may ladder this VIU Certificate into the NALMA Program Level II Technical Training. Successful completion of both Level I through the VIU Professional Indigenous Lands Management Certificate + NALMA Program Level II Technical Training of the Professional Lands Management Certification Program (PLMCP) will confer the National Certification as a Practitioner in First Nation Land Management to individuals.  

Students who meet or exceed the minimum admission requirements may not necessarily be admitted to the program.
