Personal Support Worker (PSW) Program

Study online to become a certified PSW with the Atlantic College of Applied Health Sciences (ACAHS)


There’s never been a better time – or a better way! – to get the skills and training you need for a career in a field with a strong career outlook. The online PSW Program from ACAHS lets you pursue PSW certification while keeping your current job and everyday commitments.

Tuition is $5,000 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 Postsecondary Education Training and Labour (PETL) to ensure your tuition is 100% paid on your behalf. If you do not work with a facility that employs PSWs, then consider applying for a government student loan or pay by installments.

Why Choose ACAHS?

Our program is 100% self-directed and self-paced, so you can study and progress at your own pace with online support available when you need it
Our online courses feature virtual simulation labs and include the option to attend one of our labs in Fredericton. Both are equipped with everything needed to practice core skills in a real-world work environment
You may be eligible for 100% of your tuition to be paid through the Labour Force Training program with PETL.
Your PSW certification meets and/or exceeds PSW education standards across Canada (except Quebec)
