“Sault College’s Continuing Education Department remains committed to broadening its online programming to offer courses that are unique and address the needs of our learners,” said Rachel Hill, Program Manager, E-Learning. “Online learning is appealing to many as it offers a high degree of flexibility and a self-directed learning environment. Many learners may be balancing work or personal commitments that make it difficult to attend traditional on-campus courses or are living outside of Sault Ste. Marie. These online programs help to better balance their learning needs while supporting their educational goals,” she added.

Learners can complete just one course or work towards completing an entire certificate – it’s completely up to the learner! Each program offers a September, January or May intake. To learn more about these and other online programming, visit or contact 705.759.2554 ext. 2612.
