Students who apply to Carlton Trail College’s 2023-24 Continuing Care Assistant (CCA) program have a chance to have their tuition fully covered through a special promotional opportunity. 

“Individuals have until July 15 to apply and be accepted into a Carlton Trail College CCA program for the upcoming academic year to be eligible to have their tuition cost covered,” says Carlton Trail College in a release. 

CCA programs start in September and are offered at Carlton Trail College’s Humboldt, Punnichy, Wakaw, and Wynyard campuses.

“As part of the post-secondary sector in Saskatchewan, we’re committed to training future healthcare professionals,” said Deanna Gaetz, Carlton Trail College Business and Skills Training Director. “One of those urgent needs is for Continuing Care Assistants, which the Province continues to identify through its Health Human Resources Action Plan.”

Continuing Care Assistants deliver assistance to clients in locations such as nursing homes, long-term care homes, retirement homes, client homes, or hospitals.

Carlton Trail College says the goal of the CCA Win Your Tuition promotion is to encourage individuals to consider starting a career in healthcare, while potentially reducing the financial cost of doing so.

Those eligible will be entered into a random draw and the student picked will be confirmed in August.
