The health care aide program provides employment opportunities in the high-growth, in-demand health care industry. With recent changes to regulations, hospitals and medical practices can no longer provide on-the-job training. They need qualified health care aides from accredited Alberta Healthcare Programs like the one at ABM College in Calgary.

Our intensive five-week curriculum includes a mixture of academic knowledge and practical experience. Along with the basics of human anatomy, medical terminology, diseases, chronic conditions, and palliative care, you’ll learn how to treat patients physically and emotionally. You won’t find a better way to jump-start your healthcare career.
