  USEFUL INFORMATION  

An ASP attests to the specialization of a student in an area of training that is more specialized than the one represented by a DEP. It attests to training that offers upgrading or specialization in a particular trade.

ASP programs are developed by Ministère de l’Éducation et de l’Enseignement supérieur. For more information, consult the Inforoute de la formation professionnelle et technique, an online resource on vocational and technical training.
