President's Message

Dennis Silvestrone - CETABC President

CETABC is British Columbia’s own association of continuing education, contract training, and workforce training professionals.

Representing colleges and regional universities all across the province, CETABC provides a meeting place for our members to share their passion for lifelong learning. It is where we collaborate, share best practices, and find solutions to uniquely British Columbia situations.

This is accomplished through committee work, regular meetings of representatives from our member institutions, and an annual forum. The forum provides two days of intense professional development where we get together for workshop sessions, discussion panels, expert speakers, and networking opportunities.

Today CETABC continues to be a voice for lifelong learning of all kinds in British Columbia: continuing education, contract training, and workforce development. Our college and regional university members provide learning opportunities to adults and workers in every region and virtually every community throughout BC.

Our members play a vital role in our communities - responding quickly and with innovative solutions to the adult education and workforce training needs of our employers, communities, citizens, and families.
