Program Description

The safety and sanitation of health care institutions is essential to their proper functioning. Sanitary guidelines in Canada are very specific and determine how health care institutions must maintain their facilities in order to ensure patient, visitor, and staff safety. The Hygiene and Sanitation in Health Care Settings program familiarizes you with the standards and procedures needed to ensure health care facilities meet these exacting requirements.

Our experienced instructors train you in the latest techniques through hands-on, guided learning. Our partnerships with local health organizations will allow you to gain real-world experience, while building strong employer networks. 

Program graduates work in different health care facilities, such as hospitals, residential and long-term care centres (CHSLDs), local community service centres (CLSCs) and seniors’ residences, medical clinics, rehabilitation centres and palliative care facilities.
