Active & Healthy Senior Living (Retirement Homes) Operations

Certificate of Completion | AH911

This program is being updated. We look forward to offering it by January 2020. 

The Canadian retirement home industry is expected to double in the next five years, as we experience a surge in baby boomers aging. This rapid expansion is creating an industry-wide need for qualified staff and retirement home managers. 

This program is ideal for those already in the seniorl living industry and want to increase their level of responsibility or move up, and those desiring to capitalize on related industries (recreation, hospitality, nutrition, and sales to name a few) in order to shift career paths. Students will spend up to 7.5 hours per week on course materials, allowing for the continuation of full-time careers.
