Message from Principal
Welcome to the website of Institute of Professional Education And Knowledge (PEAK).
PEAK is the continuing professional development arm of Vocational Training Council (VTC) responsible for the provision of in-service training and professional examination services. It was established in 2003, together with its preceding units, PEAK has played a pivotal role in vocational and professional education and training in Hong Kong for over 20 years.
To support VTC's mission of providing adult learners with cost-effective and flexible in-service training for lifelong learning and enhanced employability, PEAK strives to deliver quality and relevant programmes tailored to the needs of the working population. These programmes cover the following areas: financial services, management, information technology, languages, construction and real estate. Their level ranges from short courses, CPD accredited courses, professional diplomas, and, in partnership with universities, bachelor's and postgraduate diploma programmes. The quality standards are maintained through scrutiny by relevant training boards and general committees, which are established by the Government with representatives from employers and trade associations to steer VTC on its curriculum development and quality assurance systems.
In addition to its role as a training provider, PEAK is also one of the largest administrators of professional examinations in Hong Kong. Over 165,000 people take various kinds of examinations every year, notably Insurance Intermediaries Qualifying Examination and Mandatory Provident Fund Examination, at PEAK's Wan Chai Examination Centre. Starting from April 2019, Examination Centre also takes up administration of the Estate Agents Qualifying Examination and Salespersons Qualifying Examination.
This website contains rich information on products and services offered by PEAK. After browsing through the pages, I believe you will find courses that suit your learning needs. Furthermore, as part of our continuing process improvement, please give us feedback on how to improve its interface and usefulness.
I look forward to receiving your comments.
