March 2020 - French program in Hawkesbury: Modification of training program due to the COVID-19 pandemic

In order to meet the very urgent need for Personal Support Workers in the current situation, the Employment Services Center and CEPEO have modified the training program so that help can be sent out more quickly.

A short 3-week virtual training started on April 27 for registered participants. Once this training is completed, participants will be directed to long-term care residences and institutions of Prescott and Russell to assist existing staff.

The Center has received authorization from the ministry to offer this modified training, and has also received additional funds in order to provide tablet computers and internet connections to participants who need it to follow the virtual training.

Once the pandemic is over, participants will return to the classroom to follow the 36-week training course in order to get their certification.
