Personal Support Worker

Certificate 25 weeks

If you’re interested in a career where you can make the lives of people around you better and work as part of a team in the healthcare system, the Personal Support Worker program at CDI College is for you.

Personal Support Workers

Personal support workers are a vital part of the healthcare system in Canada. In this program, you will learn how to improve the quality of life of your patients, including assisting with their physical, emotional, and mental well-being.


You will also learn how to assist clients with personal hygiene, mobility needs, getting proper nutrition, creating a care plan, helping with medications and cognitive issues, as well as identifying and reporting elder abuse. You'll also receive your Standard First Aid Certificate and CPR Certificate before going out on your practicum.

Hands-on Healthcare Training

The Personal Support Worker program gives you focused, relevant training to help you excel in various care environments. If you need flexibility, part-time and evening study may be available at our Mississauga, North York, and Scarborough campuses.


The final stage of the program includes two practicum placements, totalling 310 hours over eight weeks, with one at a community organization, and the second at a care facility. These work placements ensure you’ll be job-ready and prepared to move into your new career as a personal support worker.
