This program trains practitioners for both home care and continuing care. Take our Continuing Care Assistant courses and be job ready in just 10 months!

Growing needs

Continuing Care Assistant coursesThe Continuing Care segment is one of the fastest growing fields of health care. Our population is aging (Statistics Canada reports that our 65+ population grew 11% from 2006 to 2011, and will continue to grow), and Nova Scotia has more seniors per capita than the national average (16.6%, compared with a national percentage of 14.8%). There continues to be a strong demand for nursing homes, although more care is being shifted to individuals in their homes. Employment opportunities include Hospitals, CCAs, CTAs (Care Team Assistants), Home Support Workers, and Personal Care Workers.

Provincial Certification

The CCA program is a provincial standard program required as an entry-to-practice standard for designated care settings under the jurisdiction of the Department of Health. Upon completion of the CCA program, you will write a provincial certification exam to receive the CCA designation.
