1. Students in a Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) program will likely have met all pre-requisite requirements upon entering this concentration. On the other hand, non-BBA students will need to take special note of: (a) required pre-requisites to ensure they are able to enrol in the required courses and (b) suggested courses, skills and/or competencies. This information can be found on the Douglas College Course Catalogue website.
2. Because the industry requirements get updated occasionally, students wanting the FITT- CITP should check with the Director of Business Programs to determine if these CBA electives credits should be used to take additional courses to meet the FITT - CITP credential.
