Personal Support Worker – Accelerated

Cambrian College is excited to be part of a province-wide initiative to meet an urgent demand for more personal support workers (PSWs). Take our accelerated PSW program in April, May, or June 2021 to be job-ready in just 24 weeks – and your tuition fees and supply costs will be covered! You will also be paid during your placement.

Through a combination of online learning and in-person hands-on learning in our simulation lab, you will learn the skills to assist clients with activities of daily living and contribute to the quality of life of individuals who live in a facility or community setting. You will spend your second semester working in a healthcare setting with experienced PSWs and a faculty member who will help you to put your skills into practice to become a confident, caring, and job-ready PSW.

Please note that the government funding for tuition and supply costs is available for Canadian students only.
