  • Student Financial Aid Services available.

Tutoring:

  • The UA Piping Industry College of British Columbia provides tutoring services to students whom require additional assistance. It is our goal and belief that all students have different learning styles, the same as instructors have different teaching methods. The supports that we offer are professional and effective.
  • We leave no stone unturned and believe that with patience and a focused assessment we can do our very best for each student. If through our assessments we find a student may have difficulties we source the best possible solution for that individual.
  • The UAPICBC’s goal is to produce productive, safe, and efficient workers for the piping industry; and sometimes that means we need to work a little bit harder.
