Préalables fonctionnels

Cette section indique les épreuves ou les codes de cours des programmes d'études actuels de la formation générale des adultes requis comme préalables spécifiques en langue d'enseignement et en mathématique. Le respect des préalables fonctionnels comporte la réussite des préalables spécifiques et la réussite du test de développement général (TDG). Lorsqu'un DEP n'exige pas de préalables spécifiques en langue d'enseignement ou en mathématique, un tiret ( - ) figure dans les cellules visées. Dans le cas des programmes menant à une ASP, les préalables spécifiques et le TDG ne s'appliquent pas (N/A).
