Classification of educational qualifications responses - variant for alternate reporting
This 'alternate reporting' variant of the Classification of educational qualifications responses differs from the standard Classification of educational qualifications responses in that persons who obtained trades qualifications from secondary-level vocational training programs in the province of Quebec, such as the Diplôme d'études professionnelles/Diploma of Vocational Studies (DEP/DVS), are included in the category 'Secondary (high) school diploma or equivalency certificate' instead of 'Apprenticeship or trades certificate or diploma.' If these qualifications are to be included in the category 'Apprenticeship or trades certificate or diploma' in the data presentation, then the 'Classification of educational qualifications responses' should be used.
While the categories of this classification represent Canadian awards and qualifications, this standard does not exclude equivalent qualifications obtained from accredited educational institutions or government bodies in other countries.
Where 'response' appears in brackets in the category name, it may be omitted when the context provides clarification.
Where 'College, CEGEP or other non-university certificate or diploma' appears in brackets in the category name, it may be omitted when the context provides clarification.
