Over the past number of years, there has been an increased need for Continuing Care Assistants in Nova Scotia. To address this need, CBBC Career College has partnered with GEM Health Care Group to help fill this shortage!

This program consists of approximately 20 weeks of remote learning instruction and 10 weeks of practicum placement. You will be trained to provide direct client-care in-home support agencies, nursing homes, and homes for the aged. You will learn how to provide proper care to meet the various needs of the elderly, disabled, and convalescents. 

The goal of this partnership is employment, once enrolled and skills training is complete, you will be offered part-time employment within the facility.  After the successful completion of the CCA program, your employment will continue at the facility where you completed your practicum. 

In order to qualify for this partnership, an employment contract is required, therefore relocation may be required if your placement is not within a reasonable commute. 

Bursaries may be available to those who qualify!

*Clinical Placements and Work Experience practicums in both long-term care and home-support agencies must be successfully completed in order to graduate. An interview may be required before accepting students for clinical experience. Shift work is an integral part of this career, and physical demands include moving, lifting, and continued standing. Upon successfully completing all components of the program, you will be eligible to write the provincial exam administered by The Nova Scotia Continuing Care Advisory Committee. Students will receive a job offer assuming they pass all program, provincial requirements, and interview with the host care home.
