Professional development details delivered at RDC open house

Sessions will be held on campus Jan. 10

Information about 10 professional development opportunities will be presented at a Red Deer College open house next Thursday.

RDC’s school of continuing education is presenting various information sessions for winter and spring courses.

* At 5:30 p.m.: a presentation on pre-employment trades will be presented in Room 2906, management skills for supervisors (Room 2901B) and RDC in Mexico (Room 2905).

* At 6 p.m.: advanced management (Room 2901B), bookkeeping (Room 2906) and computer software (Room 2905).

* At 6:30 p.m.: health care aide (Room 2906), project management (Room 2901B) and master electrician (Room 2905).

* At 7 p.m.: leadership (Room 2901B).

“This is a great opportunity to explore all that RDC has to offer and we look forward to talking with prospective students,” says Rodney Holt, associate dean of the school of continuing education.

RDC is pleased to introduce the health care aide certificate in Red Deer. The first intake of students will begin April 8. The Red Deer program builds on the success of the course offered in Drumheller, Stettler and Rocky Mountain House, through RDC’s partnership with Campus Alberta Central.

“The health care aide certificate at Red Deer College is a flexible program in which students do much of their course work as it fits into their daily schedule,” says Leanne LaBrash, program co-ordinator at the school of continuing education.

By learning through online classes, labs and two community placements, students will be prepared for various workplaces by RDC’s health care aide certificate, she added.
