DescriptionThis Ontario College Certificate program prepares students using an integrated classroom model located onsite at Providence Manor, a long-term care home in Kingston, Ontario. This unique learning environment will help students to be well-prepared for a career as a Personal Support Worker and to provide safe and caring support services to clients. Responsibilities of the Personal Support Worker may include assisting with home management, facilitating social and recreational activities, and promoting health and well‐being with clients from all ages of the lifespan.

The program has been developed to meet the standards published by the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities. These standards reflect the increased pre‐employment education and training required by Personal Support Worker graduates entering the increasingly diverse health and social care environment.

Personal Support Workers are unregulated health care providers. They work as a member of the care and support team under the supervision of a regulated health professional or supervisor, or in the supported independent living environment, under the direction of the client.
