JV Certificate Program

Restarting this September, PJVA will be offering its Joint Venture Certificate of Achievement program in-house again. Hosted downtown at the PJVA office c/o Associations Plus, this lecture-based program is both written and delivered by well-respected and experienced Joint Venture professionals. The courses have been tailored to the Western Canadian Joint Venture industry and practices.

Materials will be available the week of September 4, "Reading Week", so students have the opportunity to become familiar prior to the first classroom session of "Joint Venture Agreements", which kicks off September 11. (Please note this "Reading Week" will be available for all courses.)

PJVA strongly recommends this course to any professional who has any exposure to or involvement with Joint Ventures. Ending in March 2019, with "Joint Venture Analyst Level II", PJVA is confident that this offering will provide its graduates with the critical foundational knowledge required to begin taking on a Joint Venture role.
