Continuing Care Assistant Progressive Education Plan

We have been selected to take part in Nova Scotia’s Continuing Care Assistant Progressive Education Plan, delivering the program through the “Work and Learn, 3 and 2” CCA Education Model! Watch the video announcement below.

Under this new, Work and Learn, 3 and 2 model, students can complete their Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) course by attending three days a week and working two days a week in paid positions within the continuing care environment. The Progressive Education Continuing Care Assistant program will be available in Sydney, Dartmouth, and rural areas throughout the province.

Tuition, administration and exam fees, and books, will be provided to Nova Scotia residents who qualify for this unique program!

The Work and Learn, 3 and 2 CCA program consists of approximately eight weeks of in-class instruction before students move to the 3 and 2 Work and Learn model. Individuals will learn to provide care to meet the various needs of the elderly, disabled, and convalescents. An interview may be required before accepting students for clinical experience. Students are required to provide their own transportation to clinical placements and work experience. Shift work is an integral part of this occupation. Furthermore, physical demands include moving, lifting, and continued standing.
