Toronto, ON (Vocus/PRWEB) February 24, 2011
Ontario residents interested in a health care career have a new option for training. CDI College is now accepting applications for its Personal Support Worker program in Toronto.
With courses that cover safety, injury prevention, disability assistance, dementia care, and palliative care, the Personal Support Worker diploma program offers students the opportunity to learn how to identify and respond to the physical and emotional needs of their patients. In addition, students must complete 355 hours of clinical training, which provides them with valuable hands-on experience by putting into practice the theories and skills gained in the classroom. Through this practicum, they will learn how to provide patients with personal and physical care in order to improve their quality of day-to-day living.
Prospective students interested in entering this field should enjoy working with people, be able to communicate effectively and work efficiently under pressure.
Upon completion of the program, CDI College graduates will have the skills and traits they need to work as personal support workers in private homes, retirement homes, or residential care facilities.
