Jennifer is extremely proud of her school’s ability to adapt to pandemic learning. “The pandemic has actually broadened our abilities and capabilities,” she says. “Our instructor-led courses have been switched to a Zoom format and each class is recorded for students who were unable to attend so they may review that class after the fact. We actually have graduates today that started and completed their programs during the pandemic.”
Jennifer says that the pandemic has increased enrolment in their healthcare related courses. “With the focus on health services these days, our Medical Office Assistant – Health Unit Coordinator has been very popular.
