NWP, CapilanoU announce new programs


Northwestern Polytechnic and Capilano University have both announced new programs. NWP will deliver the Rural Sexual Assault Care Expanded Micro-credential, which teaches health professionals working in rural and remote communities how to support survivors of sexual assault. The micro-program contains nine modules that cover the roles of health care professionals in areas such as assessment, intervention, evidence collection, and court testimony. The program is funded by $290K over two years from the Government of Alberta. CapilanoU’s Indigenous Digital Accelerator (IDA) program has launched an Assistant Director training workshop that will prepare Indigenous filmmakers to fill needs in the film industry. The program’s Indigenized curriculum, opportunities for on-set experience, and certifications will prepare participants to enter the Directors Guild of Canada Trainee Assistant Director program.
