Caveat Disclaimer: I'm an instructor at BCIT (but not the marine campus)
This campus has a very good reputation, it's been in business for quite some time, first as the Pacific Marine Training Institute before coming under BCIT's umbrella. I know several young people who have trained there through support from the Coast Guard, various cruise lines, etc. Pretty well all grads have jobs or practicums lined up after school, the cruise lines run an 'apprenticeship' style program through them. One of my own graduates branched off into Marine Electrical Deck officer training which he received at that campus.
I'm not saying the PEI option isn't good, don't know... but - I do know our winters are easier to take!!
