The Surety Association of Canada (SAC) and McMaster University Continuing Education say they are partnering to offer the Associateship of Canadian Surety Bonding (ACSB) designation program.
The program aims to provide students with a theoretical and practical understanding of suretyship through a comprehensive review of surety bonds and related process. The program has been offered since September 1998 through the University of Toronto’s School of Continuing Studies and is intended for those who plan on embarking on a career in the surety industry.
“We are elated about embarking on this opportunity with McMaster University,” SAC president Steven D. Ness said in a statement. “This new partnership will provide our association with additional resources to further enhance and develop the program going forward.”
The ACSB designation program’s structure will remain the same, where students will be required to complete four core courses and two electives through a distance/online learning platform.
