FNTI (Formerly First Nations Technical Institute) has spent the past 35 years refining our “Intense Professional Mode” (IPM) of delivery. This model of delivery (utilized for most programs) allows for space in the post-secondary landscape for learners who have traditionally experienced barriers based on cultural gaps, geographic location and family/work commitments.

IPM is offered in 3-week blocks, (2 weeks asynchronously and 1 week synchronously), and allows for learners to complete a diploma or degree in the same amount of time as if they went to a full-time institution. Importantly, this model allows learners to maintain their family and work commitments.

Equally important, our learners are supported in each delivery by an instructor/professor, a cultural advisor, and a student success facilitator. This triad offers a well rounded and supportive educational experience for our learners.

Learners and staff provide “real time” feedback between deliveries, that is actioned by the senior leadership team.

In the 2020-2021 academic year, 99% of learners completed their programs.
