Préalables fonctionnels

Une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans peut être admise à un programme d’études menant à un Diplôme d’études professionnelles (DEP) sur la base des préalables fonctionnels. Ces préalables fonctionnels, prescrits pour une personne qui a atteint l’âge de 18 ans à la date de début de fréquentation déclarée dans le programme d’études professionnelle sont : la réussite du test de développement général (TDG) et l’obtention et la réussite des épreuves relatives aux préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique, s’il y a lieu.

Ce tableau indique les nouveaux codes de cours de la formation de base commune (FBC) et de la formation de base diversifiée (FBD) exigés pour les préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement et en mathématique pour le programme d’études visé. Dans le contexte où les nouveaux codes de cours de la FBC et de la FBD sont en implantation progressive, on indique entre parenthèses les anciens codes de cours toujours valides. Le code de cours équivalent en formation générale des jeunes est également indiqué dans ce tableau. Lorsqu’un DEP n’exige pas de préalables spécifiques en langue d’enseignement ou en mathématique, un (-) figure dans les cellules visées. Il est à noter que les préalables fonctionnels ne s’appliquent pas pour les programmes d’attestation de spécialisation professionnelle (ASP).
