Sarah (LTCA graduate)
She was shy when she started coming to Gateway College. She developed her confidence in school and enjoyed being with new friends and supportive instructors who contributed to her personal growth. She believes that the knowledge she gained qualified her for the job immediately after her interview.
Franz (HCA-Access graduate)
She completed the program last month and was hired after attending the Job Fair. Her exposure to taking care of patients suffering from dementia during her practicum qualified her for the job. This is further reinforced by her Dementia Certificate which is included in the program package.
Jerame (HCA- Hybrid graduate)
She started working just a couple of days after the Job Fair. She was asked to do a written exam with scenarios that she was able to answer based on what she learned from the Concepts for Practice course. After her exam and interview, she was immediately assigned a client, which fortunately, was near her home. She enjoyed the Hybrid class and highly recommends it to friends.
