Advanced Standing Personal Support Worker

ASPSW Program Overview

The Advanced Standing Personal Support Worker (ASPSW) program is an online program designed for students who have previous experience in the Personal Support Worker (PSW) role. The student must have at least 450 hours of experience working in the role of a PSW and their employer(s) must confirm they are safe and competent with at least 75% of the essential PSW skill set.

There are a total of 8 modules in this program which include chapter tests and relevant learning tools. Resource links are located within the course and are based on the assigned electronic text book.

Once the student has successfully completed the modules, ACAHS and the student will determine the final exam date. Upon successful completion of the online theory, students will qualify to write their PSW certification exam, online with a virtual proctor.

Financial Facts

Tuition is $3,000 and includes all costs and learning resources, except a computer. If you currently work for a facility that employs PSWs, we will partner with them and Post-secondary Education Training and Labour (PETL) to ensure your tuition is 100% paid on your behalf.

If you are currently unemployed, the New Brunswick government will pay 100% of your books and tuition.  They will also provide funding for childcare, milage and a laptop all while collecting EI as you study.  The first step is to call to speak to an Employment Counsellor at 506-453-2377
