Computer Graphics

The vocational training curriculum, from which this program of study derives, is the responsibility of both the Ministère de l’Éducation, which develops programs and their teaching guides, and the educational institutions, which implement the programs and the evaluation process. Programs of study include compulsory objectives and suggestions for competency-related knowledge, skills and attitudes.

Programs of study provide teachers with a frame of reference for planning teaching activities. They define the scope of teaching strategies by identifying the broad educational orientations to be favoured and the objectives to be attained. By successfully completing a program, students acquire not only the entry-level competencies required by the workplace in order to practise a trade or occupation, but also learning that provides students with a certain degree of versatility.

The duration of the program is 1800 hours, which includes 1020 hours spent on the specific competencies required to practice the trade or occupation and 780 hours on general work-related competencies. The program of study is divided into 22 modules, which vary in length from 15 to 120 hours. The total hours allocated to the program include time devoted to teaching, evaluation of learning and enrichment or remedial activities.
