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.
