Welcome to 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. Since PEAK’s establishment  in 2003, PEAK has played a pivotal role in vocational and professional education and training in Hong Kong.

To support VTC's mission of providing adult learners with quality, cost-effective and flexible in-service training for lifelong learning and enhanced employability, PEAK strives to deliver practical, updated and relevant programmes tailored to the needs of the working population. These programmes cover the following areas: financial services, management, information technology, languages, construction, hospitality, property management and aviation etc. Their level ranges from short courses, Continuous Professional Development (CPD) accredited courses, professional diplomas, and, in partnership with universities, bachelor's and postgraduate 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 100,000 people take various kinds of examinations every year, notably Insurance Intermediaries Qualifying Examination, Mandatory Provident Fund Schemes Examination, Estate Agents / Salespersons Qualifying Examination and Pleasure Vessel Operator Grade 2 Certificate of Competency Examination, at PEAK Examination Centre.   
This website contains rich information on programmes 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.
