Advanced Standing Personal Support Worker (ASPSW) Program


The Atlantic College of Applied Health Sciences (ACAHS) wants to certify your PSW staff while they continue to work for you.

Tuition is $3,000 and includes all costs and learning resources, except a computer. All education is online so your employee/student can still maintain their current employment. As a result of the COVID-19 Pandemic, Postsecondary Education Training and Labour (PETL) will now pay 75% of the student’s tuition upon your company’s agreement to pay the 25% balance. You will receive 90% of your refund once your employee registers as a student with us. Take advantage of this funding while you can. Call or email now! We will complete all the necessary paperwork for you and be with you throughout the entire process.


Three reasons to certify your staff through ACAHS

ACAHS is the only college in New Brunswick that recognizes Prior Learning Assessment & Recognition (PLAR) to your PSW staff that have been informally trained on the job.
Your current staff can continue to work in their positions while they study on-line – anywhere – anytime. Our comprehensive Personal Support Worker (PSW) programs prepare the graduate to work in any setting that employs PSW’s, from home care to hospital settings.
ACAHS is registered with the province under the Private Occupational Training Act (POTA) as well as members of the National Association of Career Colleges (NACC) and the New Brunswick Association of Private Colleges and Universities (NBAPCU). ACAHS currently sits on the Provincial Steering Committee working towards the certification of the PSW role.

Take advantage of the $40,000/year/facility funding from PETL soon. The "Newness" of this year is firmly behind us. Complete the online form so that you can obtain all the information/resources you need to get your staff formally certified and committed to your facility!
