Programs are offered in a wide variety of fields including carpentry, industrial design, professional cooking, automobile mechanics, plumbing and heating, and health care professions.

 Students completing a LBP Continuing Education program will earn a Diploma of Vocational Studies (DVS)

Admissions to most Vocational Training programs require that students successfully complete the following core subjects:
