The Collège communautaire du Nouveau-Brunswick and Discovery Community College have both recently launched free healthcare training programs for community members. CCNB has launched a 10-week French-language technicien médical d’urgence program. Students will be trained as emergency medical technicians who will be able to replace a paramedic during provincial transfers. The program is offered free of charge thanks to funding from TravailNB and the ministère de l’Éducation postsecondaire, de la Formation et du Travail. Discovery Community College is offering a 10-month Health Care Assistant Diploma Program that will train residents of Burns Lake to work in continuing care through hands-on, on-site training. Funding is provided for the program through Canada and British Columbia’s Workforce Development Agreement.
