This program is a partnership between the College of Education and the skills and trades centres in the province of Saskatchewan. The course content was developed according to the Ministry of Education's PAA/provincial curriculum standards. The curriculum addresses these standards with an array of courses that prepare the Practical and Applied Arts teacher to meet both general and local goals and outcomes. This certificate is comprised of 30 credit units of PAA classes. Completion of these classes, along with a B.Ed., prepares candidates to teach PAA in Saskatchewan settings. The program has been approved by Saskatchewan Professional Teachers Regulatory Board (SPTRB) as an Additional Qualification Certificate, and enables in-service teachers to upgrade their classification. Students can specialize in either Home Economics or Industrial Arts.

This certificate is not available to those with a B.Ed. who have previously completed a Home Economics or Industrial Arts teaching area.
