About the Ontario College Certificate – 30Weeks (Perley Rideau)

Algonquin College will be offering a third intake of their Personal Support Worker (PSW) program at The Perley and Rideau Veterans’ Health Centre (Perley Rideau) this spring, 2017. The two organizations are combining efforts to address the growing shortage of qualified PSWs in our province. This will be a unique experience offered in a shared learning environment located on the Perley Rideau campus. As a student you will be exposed to theory classes and lab demonstrations on site in the integrated classroom and then you will be able to immediately practice these skills in a real working environment, with an active health care team, supporting older adults while being exposed to diverse clinical and community settings.

This one-year Personal Support Worker Ontario College Certificate program provides students with the
knowledge and practical compentencies to work as a care provider in a wide range of health care environments.

Through a combination of theory, lab practice, and clinical/community experience, students are equipped with the skills to deliver individual care to clients of varying ages and to support their health care needs.
