Personal Support Worker – Alternate Delivery

Earn your Personal Support Worker (PSW) certificate through a blended learning experience that combines the comfort and convenience of learning from home with hands-on labs and clinical experiences during the summer months.

From September to April, you will be enrolled in the same theory courses as traditional on-site learners. You will acquire a foundation in how to assist clients with activities of daily living and how to contribute to the quality of life of individuals who live in a facility or community setting by promoting their independence, dignity, social, emotional and physical well-being, mobility, personal appearance and safety.

Upon successfully completing all theoretical components of the curriculum, you will attend eight final full-time weeks of study in May and June at the Barrydowne campus.
