On December 2, six Pontiac students received their Professional Education Diploma in Personal Healthcare Attendant (Beneficiary Attendant) from the Pontiac Vocational Training Center (CFPP). The graduation ceremony took place at Bowers Restaurant in Mansfield-and-Pontefract.
After 750 hours of training, the students are in the job market, qualified to hold positions in various health care sectors.
A $ 100 scholarship was awarded to Chantal Malo for her exemplary attendance during the training and a $ 100 scholarship was awarded to Denise Rivest for her academic performance.
A new Personal Healthcare Attendant course will begin in January 2018, and enrollment for the program is underway. For several years, the placement rate for this program has been 90%. With the aging population the likelihood of finding a job is very high. For more information, contact Jennifer Richard at 819-683-1419 ext 18123.
