Program Overview

A career as a Personal Support Worker takes heart, compassion and a dedication to helping those most in need. It also takes a highly specialized set of dynamic technical and interpersonal skills. If you’re interested in a career that is personally satisfying, the PSW program will get you on your way to career success.

Your Learning Experience
Personal Support Worker is a two-level program leading to an Ontario College Certificate. Graduates, as entry-level unregulated workers, have the knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary to provide personal care and home management services to clients in both community and institutional settings.

You’ll begin the program by creating a strong foundation in the fundamentals of personal support. You’ll learn about health and wellness, the human body and how it functions, along with examining mental health issues and life transition theories.

In addition to classroom instruction, you'll also complete placements in long-term care facilities as well as a community placement, where you'll get valuable experience providing care to clients. This means that you’ll begin your career with a highly developed set of experiences to draw on as you enter the workforce. This program also utilizes simulation learning. Learn more about our simulation labs.

Personal Support Workers work with clients who are stable and who have clearly identified needs that are not expected to change significantly. They work under the supervision of care/service teams (which include nurses and other regulated or non-regulated care providers) as well as under the direction of the client.
