The National Circus School of Canada in Montreal offers two specialized programs: Instructor in Circus Arts and Trainer in Circus Arts. The aim is to prepare teaching professionals versed in the circus arts able to provide high quality, safety-conscious training from introductory to advanced levels. Both programs lead to a college diploma: Attestation of Collegial Studies (AEC – Attestation d’études collégiales) accredited by the Quebec Ministry of Education. They were developed by NCS with the collaboration of Cirque du Soleil. More information
