Program Description

If you are the type of person who would much rather work directly with people than alone in an office, becoming a Calgary Health Care Aide may be the right choice for you! With our Health Care Aide program in Calgary, you can become fully qualified to work in a hospital, nursing home, group home, care facility in just 21 weeks.

A Health Care Aide is an all-encompassing assistant for patients and other care workers. You may have heard of other titles, such as Personal Care Assistant, Nursing Assistant or Home Health Aide—all of which fall under the umbrella of “Health Care Aide.”

As a Health Care Aide, you will make a difference in patients’ lives as you get to know them personally and help them with their needs.

This full-time program prepares graduates to work as Health Care Aides in a variety of health care areas, including hospitals, nursing homes, group homes, and home care. The program includes classroom hours, practicum placements and home study hours with a focus on hands-on learning.
