Canadian Accredited Cosmetology Career College For Sale (No. 1066)

Our client's British Columbia PCTIA accredited career college has recently received the highly coveted EQA (Education Quality Assurance) designation. The Education Quality Assurance (EQA) designation is British Columbia's brand for quality post-secondary education and is a voluntary mechanism available to all eligible post-secondary institutions in B.C. The EQA designation is also used to promote B.C. as an education destination of choice and enables both domestic and international students to easily recognize institutions that meet or exceed quality assurance standards that government recognizes. All post-secondary institutions and language schools that accept international students for study programs of longer than six months are required to have EQA designation in order to be on the "ISP Designated List" and recruit international students.

Simply put, this means our client's career college can recruit international students. On top of this, its PCTIA accreditation allows a new owner to add new programs and locations under its present accreditation. The cost and time needed to set up an accredited career college with EQA in BC would take you years to set-up and outrageous start-up costs. Here you have the opportunity to buy a fully accredited and operational career college instantaneously.
