Classroom-based Courses (Currently delivered as Virtual courses)
See the list of upcoming virtual courses.
Normally, OSLT courses are offered in a classroom-based format that is enhanced with online homework as well as a blended format that integrates classroom and online elements. In light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, Ontario colleges have adapted classroom-based OSLT course delivery to a virtual model to provide continuity of learning. They are delivered on a part-time and full-time basis in five sectors that include over thirty occupations:
- Construction Trades
- Health Sciences
- Human Services
Most courses are offered in English; some are also offered in French. Classroom-based/virtual courses are 140 or 180 hours, depending on the course, and usually delivered over 10-18 weeks.
All virtual courses require access to a computer with video and audio capabilities as well as an Internet connection.
Exclusively Online Modules
See the list of upcoming online modules.
OSLT online modules provide a flexible and convenient way to receive language training. All modules are offered exclusively online in English and can be taken from anywhere in Ontario. Each module is 40 hours (6 weeks), with three modules available in each of the business, health care and technology sectors. They will help you:
- learn how to access the business, health sciences or technology job markets in Ontario.
- communicate in the business, health sciences or technology sectors in Ontario.
- manage workplace interactions in the business, health sciences or technology sectors in Ontario.
Note that three online modules in one sector are equivalent to a full classroom-based OSLT course.
OSLT online also offers 40-hour courses (8 or 10 weeks) on how to write professionally in the business, health sciences or technology sectors in Ontario. These courses are intended for participants who have successfully completed a full OSLT course in that sector (or three modules in one sector).
All online modules and courses require access to a computer with video and audio capabilities as well as an Internet connection.
