Please provide me with some additional information. What is a DETC degree? I have never heard of it.
I believe the designation you are referring to is B.Sc., which is a Bachelor of Science degree.
There is no law that prevents you from adding any initials to your name no matter what they stand for. The problem that you will encounter is validating your use of any degree designation. People will actualy ask you where you got your degree from. And some people will actually check up on what you say.
The last thing you want is to be embarrassed.
I do suggest that you make every effort to obtain a bona fide degree from a recognized University. There are no second bests.
Good luck. You may click "accept" and still follow up with another question. Thank you for using JustAnswer.
You might want to view some particular job ads and see whether the Gov. of Ontario lists the DETC qualification as one of the qualifications that they accept.
Each employer determines for itself what accreditations it will accept.
A lot of distance education is poorly regarded as not being equivalent to traditonal educational institutions.
It would appear to me that the DETC accreditation was something invented by the educational institutions that use the accreditation. This is a common tactic.
Don't be dispointed if the accreditation is not universally regarded or accepted.
A better method would be to determine what accreditations are acceptable, then achieve or obtain those credentials.
That is about all the assistance that we can offer in this format. Thank you for usuing JustAnswer.
