PSW Blended Delivery Offering
 Blended Delivery Offering Through our SE Career College of Health, SE Health is pleased to announce that we will offer an intake of the Personal Support Worker (PSW) Certificate Blended Delivery (BD) Program in Southern Ontario. Our career college is a regulated not-for-profit college exclusively focused on health education. This program has been developed to support students who wish to minimize the time required to leave the community and family to complete PSW training.

A blended delivery format allows students in the PSW BD program to learn through in-person sessions, independent learning modules at home, and weekly, instructor-led, virtual gatherings through Zoom.  Students will be well prepared to use these virtual technologies after the first in-person session of the program.

The Blended Delivery PSW Certificate program will be delivered over 34 weeks, with two in-person sessions of 2 weeks each, a 2-week daily virtual gathering session, a 3-week long-term care (LTC) practicum (LTC Practicum locations TBD), and community practicum hours (in the student’s home community).

Graduates will receive an SE Health Career College Certificate upon completing the program. They will be prepared to work in various practice settings, including home support, assisted living, residential/complex care, special care units, other home and community care settings, and acute care.
