Through its founder, Paul Anderson, the organization has evolved from its beginnings as a small training proprietorship in 1991 to an incorporated training company in 1993.
In 1998, the operating name Anderson Career Training Institute (ACTI) was adopted to better reflect the company's focus as a formal training Institute.
Throughout this period, our mission at ACTI has been to help individuals empower themselves to realize their full potential through training, coaching and mentoring.
In particular, since 1996 we've helped over 1400 Albertans to realize their dream of becoming entrepreneurs and taking greater control of their lives through our Self Employment training program and our Professional Development Seminars.
If you’re ready to start your first business, the best thing you can do to maximize your success is attend the government-funded free business training provided by ACTI in Edmonton.
Whether you’re starting a small home-based business, a retail store, a trades service, or a larger industrial business, we have the experienced entrepreneurs ready to guide you through the process. As the longest running Self Employment training program in Edmonton, the team at ACTI has seen the highs and lows of Alberta’s economic cycles and we know what works! And we’ve shown that we will be around to support your growth for the long term.
