RDC launches ESL to Health Care Aide program

January 18, 2021

Red Deer College has launched a 52-week ESL to Health Care Aide program that will enable English language learners to study toward a Health Care Aide Certificate while developing English skills. Students in the program will spend 14 weeks developing reading, writing, speaking, and comprehension skills in English, with the remaining 36 weeks dedicated to the program’s academic and practical components. The program will cover a variety of healthcare topics, such as the human body, communication and documentation, and person-centred care, and will include hands-on labs and in-person clinical placements. Graduates will be prepared to work in environments such as hospitals, homes, and care facilities. RDC | Red Deer Advocate (AB)
