DescriptionThe First Nations Aboriginal University Bridging Program Certificate is a result of community consultations spanning across the Province of British Columbia. The initial phases of consultation date back to 2001 with Faculty and Administrators receiving feedback from communities as to the need for First Nations having access to meaningful and accessible prerequisite courses.

The concept of creating a supportive adult education Bridging Program incorporating face-to-face classroom learning, ongoing learner support, coaching and mentoring and, where possible, the use of technology to support learning, has been identified by communities spanning across the province. Communities have stated that learners need access to introductory, measurable and comprehensive adult education programming which directly aligns with the prerequisites for natural resource management, science, health, education and trades programs.
