Job Skills is pleased to announce that the Bridge to Health Care Alternatives program will once again support internationally trained health care professionals with finding a related career in the Canadian health care field.
Over the last three years, the program supported 230+ internationally trained professionals with health care work experience to find an alternative career path in their new country. This online program focuses on helping individuals look at career paths in the non-regulated health care industry where certification may not be required.
There will be scheduled, facilitator-led online workshops and group discussions held Monday to Friday between 8:30 a.m. and 4:30 p.m. (schedule to be determined).
