Assistance in Health Care Facilities 

About the program

The Assistance in Health Care Facilities program prepares you with the skills to deliver health care to patients. Patient assistants promote the comfort of the people under their care by helping them with meals, personal hygiene, and mobility.

Our exciting learning spaces include interactive classrooms and laboratories that simulate a true to life hospital environment. Working in small groups, you will benefit from shared learning with your classmates. All of our teachers are former health care professionals and they guide you through hands on learning and support. Prior to graduation, students participate in real world training in a hospital setting through our student placement program.

Skills you will learn:

  • Care of patients’ basic needs
  • How to prevent the spread of infection
  • How to interact with patients with mental and cognitive deficits
  • CPR and PDSB 


A career in health care

Our program can be completed in less than a year, which gives you a quick jumpstart on a new career. Health care professionals are in high demand and our graduates find work in hospitals, nursing homes, and long-term health care facilities.
