CPSWs Issues and Facts

Make a positive impact in the lives of others. CCSCARE is looking for people with compassionate hearts, who enjoy helping others, while establishing a career or business in the care giving field. You can accomplish this through home study and obtain part time employment in approximately six months. Certification and Professionalism are the result of the equivalent of 1000 classroom hours in home study over up to a three year time period. 

Would you like the opportunity to work with respect for elders in our community, as a friendly, caring person capable of doing a variety of tasks for seniors around their homes, including meal preparation and grocery shopping, cleaning and caring as a Professional with Heart?  Personal Support Workers usually work for private and not-for-profit homecare agencies. They may also work for senior citizens’ homes, nursing homes or hospitals. CPSWs often provide care in the client’s home. Self-employed CPSWs make twice the wage of PSWs working for an agency. 

While you are working and earning a living to become a Certified Caregiver/Personal Support Worker (CPSW), you do not have to quit your job or lose money to become a full-time student. Keep your income and pay for your education as you go through home study!

SELF-EMPLOYMENT TRAINING AND ASSISTANCE 

Our ministry is to care for others in the workplace. This can most often be accomplished through self-employment. CCSCARE.CO offers self-employment training and expertise for all courses.

 

PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND SKILL UPGRADING PROGRAMS

These types of programs are intended for individuals who already have experience in a related vocation and are offered for the purpose of upgrading or updating qualifications. For example, a communications program for international professional engineers would be considered a professional development program, since those enrolled would already have the skills and knowledge required for employment as an engineer.

 

BENEFITS

Please note that CCSCARE.CO delivers workplace training, standards and International Certification at a low $4.37hr student cost compared to community colleges and private colleges where the student attempting to find employment is required to spend $10,000 for 300 hours of training or $33.33 per hour, and $5,000 in lost wages for a placement in the public sector nursing homes. Front line health care providers may be employed without training in private sector nursing homes and retirement homes.

 The CCSCARE.CO programs do not mandate unpaid placement hours. Placement hours at CCS may be paid ($3,000 added value). Placement hours at Community Colleges and Private Schools are unpaid at a cost to student of $5,000.00

In addition to the cost per hour training difference, you are encouraged to work as soon as you have completed the first, second, and fourth module, and have your CPR/First Aid and Police Check in place. 

You will become a qualified Caregiver/PSW in as little as six months, or take two to three years in home study while working and making low payments of $200.00 a month. Earn your way through and stay away from costly student loans that create an unforgiveable debt.

 

RISING DEMAND FOR QUALITY CERTIFIED CAREGIVERS/PERSONAL SUPPORT WORKERS IN CANADA 

Excellent job opportunities are expected for this occupation as the population ages and more individuals are in need of care. In a study conducted by The Senate of Canada, "Canada’s Ageing Population," it was stated that the amount of people living to over 100 years old is set to triple to more than 14,000 by 2031. This is an extremely large group of people that will be in need of assistance. Based on the population difference in the United States, that number would be at least ten times as great. That means that even more job opportunities for trained Personal Care Professionals will be required. This is a great career path and business for someone considering entering the healthcare field right now.
