Education Assistant - Combined

Diploma 45 weeks

Do you enjoy working with children? Now, with a hybrid in-class and online curriculum at CDI College, you can play an increasingly vital role in today's classrooms.


In the Education Assistant program, learn how to support teachers and advocate for inclusive classroom environments, while you train for your new career both in-class and online. 


Offering more flexibility than a traditional classroom, become familiar with alternative teaching tactics including sign language, Boardmaker, and TouchMath, and learn how to create individualized learning plans, while ensuring you get the one-on-one attention you need to succeed in your studies. 


Before you graduate, you will complete two separate practicums for a total of eight weeks. Graduate with a number of marketable skills so you can work in a variety of settings including elementary and secondary schools, group homes, and youth centres. 

CDI College is licensed by the Private Career College Branch of Alberta Advanced Education.
