Conestoga College and Algoma Manor have partnered to deliver the PSW FAST-ONSITE program, which will train personal support workers to address critical care needs. Conestoga instructors will deliver courses online, and students will participate in clinical placements through local health-care organizations. The 20-week program will prepare 50 students to work in long-term care homes. “We greatly appreciate the efforts of Algoma Manor to bring health-care education and training to the local community,” said Veronique Boscart, Executive Dean of Conestoga’s School of Health and Life Sciences. “We look forward to working in partnership to address the region’s care needs through this innovative education initiative.” The cost for participants will be covered by the Canada-Ontario Job Grant.
