Why enroll in this program?

With the new Health Care Facility Patient Service Support Skills Training Certificate, the Québec government wants to make it easier for you to obtain a rewarding job where every action makes a difference. You will earn this certificate after receiving quality training at one of Québec’s vocational training centres.

In addition to enabling you to quickly start contributing in the service of public health, this short initial training also allows you to obtain a Skills Training Certificate leading to official certification as a CHSLD orderly. The Skills Training Certificate has been created as an exceptional measure to make qualified workers rapidly available. It is intended to rapidly train CHSLD orderlies who will be able to lend a helping hand in the health network.

Graduates will have a temporary beneficiary attendant qualification for a period of two years.

With 5 campuses located on the South Shore of Montreal, ACCESS has been a resource for the Riverside School Board community for over 40 years, empowering individuals who are 16 and older in their ongoing quest for academic and professional success.
