RRC, MB partner to provide free COVID-19 nasal swab micro-credential

October 16, 2020

Red River College has partnered with the Province of Manitoba to provide free COVID-19 nasal swab micro-credentials to students in select programs. RRC’s School of Continuing Education will provide the course, which students can complete in as little as five hours through a blended delivery model. Students who have completed the course will be added to a list of people who can perform nasal swabs at testing sites across Manitoba. RRC will begin by training up to 30 students a week, and expand capacity as necessary. “We are proud to offer this new micro-credential that will prepare our front line and students from a variety of health-care programs to help reduce the spread of the virus,” said RRC’s president Fred Meier.
