Cornwall Ontario – Personal support workers play a vital role in the health-care industry, working in private homes or health-care facilities to help provide patients with care and comfort.

PSW Training Cornwall

Job Zone d’emploi is collaborating with the Prescott Russell employment agency (CSEPR) in delivering a Personal Support Worker (PSW) training initiative funded through the SkillsAdvance Ontario program (SAO). Develop your skills and obtain your PSW certification to help people with physical or mental disabilities, including seniors with a loss of autonomy. This accelerated program includes:

  • No tuition fee and  funding for expenses such as textbooks and other supplies.
  • A condensed 5-month schedule that includes paid on-the-job training.
  • Support for child care, transportation and other support if needed
  • Personal Support Worker certification provided by the Catholic District School Board of Eastern Ontario.

“This program is an excellent way to start a new rewarding career in health care.” says Kimberly Arbic, Director of Community Relations with Job Zone d’emploi.

There is limited space and participants must meet eligibility criteria. The program starts off with 1 week of virtual pre-employment workshops (Sept 7th to 10th), followed by 5 months free training starting  September 13th.
