Opportunities abound!

The Academy of Learning’s Academic Advisor recently attended the 2019 Labour Market Year-in-Review, and was amazed at the number of jobs available in the medical field.

Did you know that between 2018 and 2023 it is estimated that there will be a need for 30,000 more jobs?

Consider one of these programs to take advantage of future opportunities:

  • Medical Office Assistant: Once you’ve completed the Academy of Learning program you’ll be equipped to work in physicians’ offices, laboratory and diagnostic imaging centres, group homes, hospital admissions, and other exciting environments.
  • Community Service Worker: With this diploma you’ll have access to opportunities in residential care facilities, youth centres, government, out-patient care centres, local community service centres, hospitals, rehabilitation centres, addictions counselling clinics, mental health centres and other places.
  • Administrative Assistant: This program offers a wide range of training to help students become proficient using office administration software such as Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, PowerPoint, Outlook, Publisher and more. Students learn about office procedures, business planning, bookkeeping and accounting practices.

“Both our Medical Office Assistant and Community Service Worker programs include a preceptorship, which places you in a real job situation where you’ll get real on the job training and practice,” Perrin says, “Whatever your dream career may be, now is the time to enrol and complete the course within a year!”
